Nick Saban: Thinks highly of future LSU recruit Dylan Moses
Fifteen-year-old Louisiana High School freshman Dylan Moses has been the subject of a media frenzy after committing to Louisiana State University.
The 6'2" 15-stone Moses, who plays linebacker and running back for his high school team University Lab in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, committed to play for Louisiana State University, in 2017.
Highly recruited since middle school, Moses is not the first player to commit at such an early age, but his story has many worried about the future of major college football recruiting after multiple top schools rolled out the red carpet in attempts to secure his commitment.
Nick Saban, head coach of reigning National Champion Alabama, "told (Dylan that) he and his staff felt he could be the best player in the nation in 2017," Moses' father recalled to the Advocate - Baton Rouge.
"He said he didn't usually offer scholarships to young athletes but that he feels he has the potential to be the No 1 athlete in the nation."
Moses committed to the college via his private Twitter account writing "Just committed to LSU #GeauxTigers!!"
Despite his early commitment, Moses cannot officially sign his National Letter of Intent - his official commitment - until February 2017.
