While most members of the Illini class were faxing in their letters of intent on Wednesday, Darius Mosely was sitting in class. He is one of the ten early enrollees in this class -- five high schoolers, five jucos -- and because of that, he has a good chance at seeing playing time in 2013. He also has a chance to play because of his ability on the football field.

Looking at the tape of Mosely, I'm not sure there are any measurables that truly leap out at you, but there's one thing I can't help but notice: he has that knack. Mosely is a member of the National Honors Society and was on the academic honor roll all four years in high school, and he seems to bring that intelligence to the field with him. He's one of those players that seems to magically be in the right place at the right time, and once he has the football in his hands he knows what to do with it.
