Alabama’s All-America LB C.J. Mosley said today he will return for his senior season in ’13 rather than going out early for the NFL.

To my utter shock, Nick Saban announced today that linebacker C.J. Mosley will be returning to Alabama for his senior season. Mosley was considered to be one of top linebackers in the country and likely first round pick had he entered the draft.
Kudos to Nick Saban who has done an excellent job of keeping his guys in school for four years and maximizing Alabama’s ability to continue their domination of college football.
Mosley finished the 2012 regular season with 99 tackles, 7 tackles for loss, and 4 sacks in his first season as a full time starter. Mosley figures to be in the running for a top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
