KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — An ice storm delayed Charles Mosley‘s official commitment last week, but he made it official on Monday.
Mosley is the 34th member of Tennessee’s 2014 class and the first from West Tennessee.
He also offers some flexibility at two key positions. The Vols are recruiting Mosley as a defensive tackle, but there’s some thought that he could end up on the offensive line — and perhaps rather quickly.

Officially, the Vols have four offensive linemen and eight defensive linemen. The loss of Antonio “Tiny” Richardson to the NFL draft added another challenge to the rebuilding of the offensive line. There’s no way the Vols are going to reach their goal of 15 offensive linemen in this recruiting cycle. There’s just too much work to do.

But the Vols can feel good about their defensive line haul in this class. Some of those ends will probably end up at tackle before their careers are over. They also have some ends on the current roster who could shift inside at least some of the time in 2014.
