8th Grader Dylan Moses Gets Scholarship Offers From LSU and Alabama
The 2013 College football recruiting classes were wrapped up earlier this month, but for two SEC teams, LSU and Alabama, it’s never too early to start the process of lining up recruits — for the graduating class of 2021.
Nick Saban, head coach for the Crimson Tide, conducted his annual junior day in Tuscaloosa over the weekend. One of the players who showed up at camp was Dylan Moses, a star running back/linebacker. Moses is not your typical participant in junior day because he’s not a junior at all – Moses is only in the 8th grade.
The camp must have been a smashing success for young Dylan because after the weekend was wrapped-up, coach Saban took Moses aside and offered him a full scholarship to play for the Crimson Tide.
Coach Saban may have his work cut out for him landing Moses. You see, Moses lives in Tiger country – Baton Rouge, Louisiana. As a matter of fact, LSU’s coach Les Miles offered the child protege a full scholarship last year when he was just a 7th grader.
Why all the fuss over an 8th grader? Well, to start, Dylan Moses already stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 215 pounds. He runs the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds and he has an amazing 34-inch vertical leap. Impressive stats for anyone, yet alone an 8th-grader.
We’ll have to wait until 2017 to see which school lands young Moses, but you can bet Alabama and LSU won’t be the only teams pursuing him.
