They say that the early bird gets the worm. But when is getting that "worm" a little too early? Currently in the eighth grade, Dylan Moses has shown exceptional skill at the running back position, as well as linebacker and a little bit at defensive back. It doesn't hurt that Moses already towers over his peers.
At 6'1'' and 215 pounds, the kid from Baton Rouge has already received an early scholarship offer from LSU and this past weekend, he attended Alabama's Junior Day where he was introduced to the entire coaching and even met with head coach Nick Saban after lunch. "Coach Saban said the Alabama staff believes Dylan has a chance to be the best player in the country in the Class of 2017 and they were ready to offer him a scholarship. That’s when the fireworks started going off in our heads,” said Dylan’s father Edward Moses Jr.
Still, college is a very long way away for Dylan. For now, Moses will continue attending University Lab High School for the next four years before he ever gets to Signing Day. Below, check out a collection of Moses' highlights.
