Alabama just offered 8th grade stud Dylan Moses from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. If you think Alabama is early on the offer train, Les Miles offered Moses a scholarship last summer before his 8th grade season.
Moses isn’t even in high school yet, but he’s racked up two of the most impressive offers in college football.
Moses is 6-0, 205 pounds as a 14-year-old and has a 34” vertical with a 4.4 40.
Moses’ father talked to AL.com about Alabama offering him a scholly so early, after Moses attended Bama’s junior day.
“When he said he was offering Dylan a scholarship, we asked a lot of questions just to make sure we knew exactly what he meant. 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.”
Moses reminds me a lot of current Bama early enrollee Derrick Henry, who is a 6-3, 245-pound uber back with huge upside. Henry will play either running back, full back, H-back, tight end or even outside linebacker.
We’ll see what position Moses grows into.
