IMG Academy linebacker and Baton Rouge native Dylan Moses announced the plan for his five official visits last night via twitter:
If you’ve lived under a rock for the last three years, Moses is one of the top prospects in the recruiting class of 2017, and was offered by the Tigers as an eighth grader at University High on LSU’s campus. Naturally, his recruitment has had its twists and turns: a commitment early in his high school career, followed by a decommitment last summer; in November, Moses wrote an impassioned defense of Les Miles as LSU’s head coach, and then shortly thereafter left U-High to enroll at IMG.
After the move to Florida, most LSU fans speculated that Moses would be gone to Alabama or some other major program, but within a few months, the scuttlebutt was that Moses still had LSU in his heart. The IMG move would allow him to graduate in December, something that U-High doesn’t do. He was back in Baton Rouge for spring practice, and to date, the pay-site crowd has remained confident that he’ll be back here for his college football career.
Despite this list, that hasn’t changed, something that Derek Ponamsky made very clear this morning on Baton Rouge radio. Hell, who wouldn’t want to get flown out to L.A. for USC-UCLA or up to Columbus for Michigan-Ohio State? Meanwhile, Moses’ schedule coincides with the weaker home games on LSU’s schedule: Missouri, Southern Miss and South Alabama. That still leaves the Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Alabama games, and while Moses may not come in for the full official visit buffet, he’ll almost certainly be at one of those games.
