Spring AAU basketball is full of opportunities for high school players to emerge and ascend from little known recruits to high major prospects.

This weekend at the Under Armour Association our hunch is Tyronn Mosley is set to do just that. Playing in his first event with the Illinois Wolves, Mosley was one of the breakout stars of the event.


Mosley, a 6-foot-5 versatile guard, was effective playing a couple of different roles for Mike Mullins’ team. The long, wiry athlete spent time on and off the ball, showed good vision and passing, finished at the rim, was all over the glass and competed on defense.

“I take pride on defense,” Mosley told Scout. “I can guard every position and I can play every position. I think with my size, if it’s a small guard then I can post-up and shoot right over the top.”

“That is my biggest strength, my versatility,” he added.

For the Wolves, Molsey seemingly played every perimeter position and proved that he could guard lead guards, shooting guards and small forward.

“I like being a do-it-all guy, but I’m more like a one or a two,” Mosley said when asked about his position.

Mosley played at Chicago (Ill.) Orr and helped them to a state championship this past season. But for that team he played more inside. Now he’s getting to showcase his perimeter skills, which is where he’ll play in college.

Heading into the weekend, Mosley’s recruitment was pretty scarce.

“So far, I only have offer from Chicago State, but I have a lot of interests,” Mosley said.

But if his play this weekend was any indication, that is going to change quickly. Word already reached his home state, as DePaul offered on Sunday.

Mosley, who claims a 3.5 GPA, said he’s also received some light interest from Missouri, Oklahoma State, St. Louis and Minnesota.
