Incoming 9th Grader Heavily Pursued by Top Colleges

Incoming 9th Grader Heavily Pursued by Top Colleges

Most incoming ninth-grade football players are worried about how they will adjust to the rigors of high school ball. Dylan Moses, however, is no ordinary ninth grader.

An incoming high school freshman, Moses is 6’2″, 223 lbs., and claims a 4.46 forty-yard dash. The uber-talented member of the Class of 2017 has coaches, many of whom will likely no longer be with their current school by the time Moses graduates, salivating over the prospects of landing him.

The Baton Rouge area standout has been featured on the cover of ESPN magazine and has received college scholarship offers from the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Texas, UCLA, and others prior to ever taking a snap in a high school game.

Not only does he have the offers, but he is already taking the recruiting process seriously.

This weekend, Moses will visit Auburn and Alabama. “We got the word from Coach (Tim) Horton over the weekend that Auburnhad decided to offer Dylan,” said Dylan’s father Edward Moses. “We werethrilled to hear it and we’re excited about learning more about Auburn.We know there’s a great tradition there of great players like Bo Jacksonand Cam Newton and it’s great to hear that they want Dylan to be a partof their program.”

“We were already planning to be in Alabama for the Alabama camp so wedecided we’d go ahead and take a visit to Auburn too while we were upthere. We’ll visit Auburn on Saturday and then head to Tuscaloosa forthe camp on Sunday and Monday.”

In addition to those visits, Moses plans to frequent LSU’s campus as well as attend camps in Ohio and elsewhere.

While many will rightfully shake their heads at the attention such a young prospect is receiving, it is simply the nature of recruiting in this day and age. Moreover, after watching film on Moses, it is hard to imagine him not being a star at either running back or linebacker at the next level.
