The Nicholls State Colonels added another local piece to their football puzzle with Rummel tight end David Mosley’s pledge after he decommitted from McNeese State.
The 6-foot-2, 242 pounder earned All District honors in the Catholic League in 2016. He owns a reliable pair of hands, good ability to run after the catch and is a devastating knockout blocker. Mosley had 10 catches for 132 yards and a touchdown for Rummel this past year. Additionally, Mosley moved to offensive tackle in the playoffs in an unselfish move to help his team. He could line up as a tight end or H-back at the next level.
Mosley has also has played on the hardwood for the Rummel basketball team.
Offers and interest came Mosley’s way from Ball State, McNeese State, Northwestern State, Grambling, Southern Illinois and Troy.
Nicholls head coach Tim Rebowe vowed to concentrate on the Metro area of New Orleans while recruiting when he assumed the Colonels head coaching job. As he enters his third season on the Bayou, Rebowe and his staff have lived up to their promise.
Ten players on the two-deep depth chart were starters or contributors on defense. On the opposite side of the ball, Rummel’s Chase Fourcade is their starting quarterback, taking snaps from center Ryan Hanley, another Rummel alum center.
The leading target for Fourcade last fall was another former Raider, Damion Jeanpierre, who had had 36 catches for 482 yards and six touchdowns for the Colonels.
Three more Colonels on offense prepped in the metro New Orleans area.
