High School Freshman Dylan Moses Commits to LSU

Dylan Moses Dylan Moses, the most popular freshman high school football player in the country, has committed to Louisiana State University to play college football.

Just four games into his freshman season at University Lab High School and after years of college wooing, 15-year-old Moses announced via Twitter his commitment to LSU.

Here’s what Rivals analyst Jason Howell had to say about Moses’ decision:

“LSU just picked up their first commitment of the 2017 recruiting class, and while that may seem a wee bit ridiculous, we’re not talking about your normal freshman athlete here. This is 6-foot-1, 220-pound, 4.5 running, 33-inch vertical jumping Dylan Moses, who picked up offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida St., Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Texas, UCLA and pretty much anyone who’s fielding a major college football team in 2013. And he picked up these offers before the first game of his freshman year.

“This is definitely not your typical 2017 prospect, and there’s no doubt this is a huge get for LSU. Moses is an extremely gifted athlete and has Division I size and athleticism right now today. He has put in most of his time at running back and linebacker, and if he continues to grow, he could find a few more possible positions out there.”

Moses first made national headlines when LSU coach Les Miles, Alabama’s Nick Saban among others offered him a scholarship as an eighth-grader, when he registered a 4.46-second 40-yard dash and 34-inch vertical leap at LSU’s football camp. Fittingly, Moses is still considered a general “athlete” prospect, because there’s plenty of time for him to nail down precisely which position he will be best placed.

But for Moses, apparently all the other schools were just wasting their time; he has always had his mind set on LSU.

“I was kind of shocked when I first heard it — it was a dream come true,” Moses told the media upon first receiving the offer from Miles last year. “I’ve always wanted to play for LSU since I was a kid, and now it’s coming true in front of my eyes.”
