You would have to dip into UK’s roster to find an athlete like Myles Moseley not getting “targets” regularly in the downfield passing game. Moseley is a 6’3″ 170-pound, ’23 prospect, whose prospects are brightening by the instant with the departure of Dane Key to the SEC. We predict big things for this rising senior.Fletcher W.

You have to admit one simple aspect. Man oh man, does Myles Moseley (’23) from Frederick Douglass ever look the part.
How many 6’3,” 170-pounders with Moseley’s length, speed, explosiveness, nasty disposition, and separation ability do you suppose only caught four (4) footballs a year ago? You could probably enumerate them on only one hand.
We looked at the prospect’s highlights from his junior season. We saw many things which would interest us were we working for a college in its recruiting office. Then again, we know exactly for what to look.
Moseley’s second highlight was his going downfield, locking up a third level defender, and depositing him right on the turf. There were plenty of highlights demonstrating the same skill.
We would say this prospect is effective in space. We would say his stalk blocking, down the field, is both “nasty” and “violent.” Well, check that box!
We also saw Frederick Douglass slip the ball to him on a screen in space. Moseley demonstrated plenty of spacial “shake” and demonstrated the speed to gain the edge and separate from downfield pursuit. Check that box too!
We saw him catch a couple over the middle and two down the field over his shoulder. He used his height and length well and caught the ball in his hands both over his shoulder and on crossing routes away from his body with the defender on his back. Add another check to that box!
Now, there was a limited amount of film to watch. Like we said, he had only 4-registered receptions a year ago, in his 10-games of varsity run, out of the 15-games the team played in route to a 13-2 slate and trip to Kroger Field.
However, if we are going by the “eye-test,” last year may not be Moseley’s last trip to Kroger field. We believe this prospect will take over much of Key’s lost production from ’21 (48-receptions, 804-yards receiving, and 7-TDs).
A return to Kroger Field looks very likely. Who knows he may make a home there with a productive senior season.
