Dylan Moses Update: No. 1 LB Takes Official Visit To LSU

Dylan Moses update the weekend before the start of college football’s recruiting dead period. The nation’s No. 1 linebacker is on an official visit at LSU.


It’s time for Ed Orgeron and Dave Aranda to earn their money. On the final weekend before college football’s recruiting dead period sets in (begins Monday, December 12), LSU will host, among others, the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker and No. 6 overall player, Dylan Moses.

A Louisiana native currently attending the IMG Academy in Bradeton, Florida, Moses committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide on October 2, just one day after taking an official visit to Tuscaloosa to witness the Crimson Tide’s 34-6 victory over Kentucky. Not resting on their laurels following his verbal commitment, Nick Saban and his staff have kept up a full-court press by hosting Moses for an unofficial visit in late November, and then making no less than two trips to meet with him in December – one of which was by Nick Saban on December 5.

Back in his home-state, Moses appears to be enjoying himself.

Known for being one of the profession’s top recruiters, this is a defining moment for Orgeron and his staff. Can Coach O lean on his Cajun roots, root out any homesickness in Moses and flip one of the top recruits in Alabama’s No. 1-ranked class?

Expect LSU to throw the kitchen sink at Moses. His visit comes shortly after the linebacker sent a cryptic tweet opining the difficult decisions that come with college recruitment. Moses’ IMG Academy teammate, safety Grant Delpit, who happens to be a hard LSU commit, is also in Baton Rouge this weekend. Saban and his staff have remained in constant contact with the nation’s top outside linebacker, but he’ll be leaned on all weekend with the draw of guiding the Tigers into a new era.

Should Orgeron and Aranda actually succeed in flipping Moses, the move would effectively plant the flag that this new-look LSU staff is not one to be taken lightly on the trail. It would also help to soften questions of whether AD Joe Alleva settled for a third option in Orgeron and if he can successfully lead the Tigers into the future.

With little in the way of football on the field this weekend, there are plenty of dramatics on the recruiting trail.
