Mosley Takes Flight

Torrance Mosley

Arkansas wide receiver pledge Torrance Mosley (5-10, 175, 4.4) was just one of many players that Arkansas hosted on official visits this weekend, but the only one who had never flown so his experience getting to Fayetteville was a little harrowing.

This weekend was a life-altering experience for Arkansas wide receiver commit Torrance Mosley, who had never flown on a plane before getting on one to fly to Fayetteville for his official visit.

When the flight attendant started going over pre-flight instructions in case there was trouble, Mosley (5-10, 175, 4.4) about lost it.

"I was like man, what you talking about?" Mosley said Sunday after his visit was over.

Mosley - who lined up mostly at tailback and had over 400 yards rushing, 200 yards receiving and 500 return yards this season, said he found religion and prayed several times during the flight.

"Before, during and after," Mosley said.

He did say there was actually a time when he felt comfortable during the middle of the flight.

"The first 10 minutes when I was looking down I was thinking I am really off the ground," Mosley said. "I was as scared as heck. Then after it started smooth sailing I was like 'this is pretty cool.' But about 15 minutes before we landed my ears started hurting. I thought I was going deaf or something. Overall, it was pretty cool."

Mosley was happy he went through with the flight and got a chance to experience what Arkansas had to offer in his first trip here since committing in June.

"It was pretty nice and I liked the people out here," Mosley said. "They showed me different things... That was pretty cool. I like it out here."

Mosley – who split time between running back and wideout for his team this season - loved his trip to the Catfish Hole restaurant with the rest of the recruits on Saturday night when he got to see some Razorback fans.

"The fans were crazy," Mosley said. "The food was real good. I got a to-go plate, but they didn't have a microwave (at the hotel) so I couldn't eat it. It was pretty cool."

He also got to attend the Razorbacks' senior banquet on Friday night.

"Coach B was saying that he felt like he failed himself because of the season," Mosley said. "But things happen and that just showed me he cares about his players more than anything."

Mosley has played his last high school game and now will spend the next few months getting ready for college and trying to make an immediate impact for the Razorbacks.

"At first I didn't cry, but once I got off the field and saw the fans, I was really like 'man, this is my last high school football game,'" Mosley said. "We have a good fan base at Dutchtown and I am going to miss that.

"Getting bigger is my main goal right now," Mosley added. "Actually I am about to turn off my phone to stop distractions."
