No. 1 2017 Recruit Dylan Moses Has Alabama As His Leader, Wants To Hear From Michigan

Michigan landed the No. 1 player in the class of 2016, defensive tackle Rashan Gary, and the 2017 recruit took notice. Dylan Moses, a running back and outside linebacker from Baton Rouge who now plays at IMG Academyand is No. 1 in 247Sports' composite rankings, as well as ESPN's rankings, wants to hear from Jim Harbaugh and his staff. As luck would have it, Michigan plans to spend a week of spring football at his school.

Moses spoke with ESPNabout his interest in Michigan.

The move to IMG could open a door to another top program, Michigan, which recently made headlines for announcing it would hold a portion of its spring practices at IMG Academy over the spring.

"That would be cool,” he said. "I’ve never really seen Michigan up close like that before and I’ve never visited the school either. It’s just a great opportunity and you know, hopefully I can get an offer from them, because I don’t have one yet.”

As for the schools that have offered him, Moses has six that stand out, including his leader: Alabama.

"Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Florida, UCLA and USC are still my top schools,” Moses said. “Alabama is still my leader because they are more structured. They have very good discipline over there so they get their kids doing what they have to do. I like their strength program, coach [Scott] Cochran, coach [Nick] Saban. It’s just a really great coaching staff over there and I just really feel comfortable there.”

He also goes on to mention visitng his hometown LSU Tigers, who he was once committed to, as well as Florida State. Basically, it sounds like things are pretty wide open for the nation's top recruit.
