High School

Posted On: 12/8/17 2:06 PM

Despite his strong start to the season, Louisiana’s 39th-ranked 2018 Marquie Mosely still finds himself a bit under the radar.

The 6-foot-1 Ellender combo-guard has very little college interest coming his way up to this point of his career, and says one main goal this winter is to be seen by the right people.

“There’s not really anybody talking to me right now. I mean, I’ll have some mail, but nothing too serious,” said Mosley.

“Over the next six months, I’m just hoping I play in front of the right coaches so I can show them what I have, and get some offers.”

A senior now, Mosley has been through a lot with the Patriots, including a trip to the 4A state title game last season. He’s now a seasoned veteran and leader for the team.

“When I’m on the court, I’m a floor general; I lead on the floor. And my shooting and dribbling are my strengths. I control the game, that’s what I do,” said Mosley.

“The main thing that I’m working on improving is my defense. I get a lot of steals, but I’m always working on my defense trying to get better, because I know at the next level you’ve got to play defense.”

Mosley is not only adept on the hardwood, but in the classroom, too. He currently sports a 3.2 GPA as he heads into the final stretch of his high school career.

Now, with his senior season season in full-swing, he says things are off to a good start for him personally, and the team will come around.  

“For me, things have been going good, I’m averaging 24 points per game right now through the first four games. And as a team, we’ve been losing, but we’re going to get it together,”said Mosley.

“My goals this season are to get back to the state championship and finish my high school career with a ring. And then I want to get a couple of offers and show colleges what I’m capable of.”
