Dylan Moses makes official visit to LSU

The race for Dylan Moses is not over, at least not completely.

On Friday, the Alabama commitment and Baton Rouge native arrived on LSU’s campus for his official visit. The visit comes after speculation that Moses was done making his college visits, leaving onlookers to believe the window is still cracked for the Tigers to make a move.

Moses is joined on the visit by his family and IMG Academy teammate Grant Delpit, who is current committed to LSU. Delpit is also on his official visit to LSU this weekend, and both Delpit and Moses are set to be early enrollees in college, meaning they graduate high school this month and move on to a college campus in January. Moses is being hosted by LSU sophomore running back Derrius Guice, a longtime friend.

This is the final weekend high school prospects can meet face-to-face with college coaches before the dead period sets in on Sunday at midnight, a stretch that will run until mid-January, after early-enrollees are already on a college campus. 

Moses has been committed to LSU before, but he reopened his recruitment process only to commit to Alabama earlier this season. His commitment to the Tide came shortly after LSU announced that Les Miles was no longer the head coach. But given Ed Orgeron got the head coaching job, and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda has signed a new contract to remain in Baton Rouge, there’s not the uncertainty around LSU’s program that was there when Moses got on board with Alabama. LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond has also played a key role in Moses’ recruitment process.

With LSU in search of linebackers, the visit from Moses is important on many levels. The Tigers currently have just one linebacker committed in four-star Patrick Queen.

Moses is ranked by the 247Composite as the No. 1 outside linebacker in the country and the No. 8 overall prospect in the class.

LSU currently has 18 commitments for the 2017 class, and the program’s class ranks No. 5 nationally.
