Top recruit puts Texas on top of his mountain of offers

Dylan Moses started receiving football scholarship offers in the eighth grade. Going into his senior year of high school at the Bradenton, Fla., football factory known as IMG Academy, Moses has an offer from just about every Power 5 program in the country.

And after visiting Texas over the weekend, Moses put the Longhorns at the top of his long, long list.

“They are my favorite for sure,” Moses told 247Sports.

Need proof that this 6-foot-2, 220-pounder from Louisiana has been the target of major programs since before he started high school? Check this out:

Texas fans can surely imagine adding Moses next to linebacker Malik Jefferson, the Big 12’s 2015 Defensive Freshman of the Year. Strong has recruited well at linebacker. Four-star prospect Jeffrey McCulloch signed with Texas in February over Texas A&M and Notre Dame, as did four-star Erick Fowler, who flipped from LSU.

Add Moses to the mix in 2017 and the Texas defense begins to look mighty ferocious.

Who knows if Moses’ mind will sway to whichever school he visits next. He’s going to have plenty of coaches — and just about everybody else under the sun — in his ear about where he should go from now until December when he plans to make his decision and then enroll early.

For the moment, Texas has to like being on top of Moses’ mountain of offers.
