An 8th Grader From Louisiana Already Has Football Scholarship Offers From Alabama And LSU

According to, Moses was invited to Junior Day this weekend at Alabama, a day meant for Juniors in high school who are prospects. Moses’ father Edward told

“We got the invitation to come to Alabama’s Junior Day a few weeks ago and to be honest we were kind of surprised. When we got there, Coach (Burton) Burns took us around and introduced us to the entire coaching staff and they all seemed very interested in Dylan. They treated him like a five-star recruit.”

Later in the day, Moses and his father spoke with Nick Saban who offered Moses a scholarship for 2017 and said he believed Moses had the potential to be the best player in the country in the 2017 recruiting class.
