Incarnate Word Offers John Tyler’s Bryson Smith + Javontavius Mosley
John Tyler junior teammates Bryson Smith and Javontavius Mosley have become extremely popular among college coaches during this spring's evaluation period.
The duo was offered once again Wednesday, as Smith and Mosley picked up new Division I FCS scholarship opportunities from Incarnate Word, which was announced through John Tyler's official Twitter account.
Smith (6-0, 170), a QB/ATH, also owns 12 FBS offers -- Arkansas State, Bowling Green, Houston, New Mexico, North Texas, Purdue, SMU, Texas State, Tulane, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, and UTSA.
Mosley, a 6-1, 170-pound CB, has eight additional FBS invitations from Arkansas State, Houston, North Texas, SMU, Texas State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, and UTSA.
Incarnate Word, located in San Antonio, introduced its football program in 2009 and competed at the Division II level through 2012. In 2013, the Cardinals made the jump to Division I FCS and competed as an independent. IWU started its membership in the Southland Conference in 2014.
The Cardinals are coached by Larry Keenan and coming off a 6-5 finish in 2015, just their second winning season in their existence and first in the Southland.
IWU also offered fellow East Texan LaMarcus Morton, a 2017 Gilmer WR, on Wednesday.
Smith threw for 2,416 yards and 20 touchdowns to six interceptions last year while simultaneously leading the team with 1,421 rushing yards and 21 scores. He started as a receiver his sophomore year.
Mosley recorded 60 tackles, two interceptions, broke up 12 passes and recovered a fumble in 2015.
The pair helped lead John Tyler to a District 16-5A championship and an 8-4 season record. The Lions’ season ended with an area-round loss to eventual Class 5A Division I state finalist Mansfield Lake Ridge.
JT will jump to Class 6A this fall and compete in District 11, along with Longview, Mesquite, Mesquite Horn, North Mesquite, Rockwall, Rockwall-Heath, and Tyler Lee.
The Lions open the season Aug. 27 at home against Plano West.
Smith and Mosley, like all high school football prospects currently in their junior year, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers them in February of 2017.
