Moses makes return trip

Dylan Moses became a national story when Alabama offered him at its Junior Day in February, and he was able to return to Tuscaloosa for the first time since on Saturday.

Currently wrapping-up his eighth grade year in Baton Rouge (La.), future University Lab athlete Dylan Moses has become quite a story.

The class of 2017 prospect already holds offers from LSU and Alabama, with the defending champs offering in February as the latest. Moses found out about while attending Alabama's Junior Day on February 23, soon before he became a youtube sensation.

Now, Moses is prepping for high school ball, ready to use his 6-foot-1, 215-pound frame in multiple positions at the prep level. He can play running back, defensive back, linebacker or virtually any other skill position.

While participating in a camp on Saturday, he worked out as a cornerback.

"I thought he did well for the first time," said Edward Moses Jr., Dylan's father.

The freshman-to-be is all about athleticism, so college coaches aren't pegging him at any one projected position just yet. The latest example was later Saturday, as the father and son drove to Tuscaloosa shortly after Alabama's big scrimmage.

There, Moses was able to meet with Nick Saban and company.

"As for his position, I don't think they can get it right now simply because we don't know if he will grow more," said Moses Jr. "His high school coach has him at linebacker as of now, so we will start there and adjust accordingly."

The Tide staff provided updates of the days events to Moses.

"We stopped in to talk to the coaches after the camp," he said. "We arrived about 30 minutes after the scrimmage had ended. So we missed the action!

"But they briefly discussed player stats; player performance and what they expect from the team during these workouts."

While numbers are great, the hospitality that the coaches provided, then and going forward, was what the family took away from being at 'Bama.

"We knew we would be late because the camp ended late, but coach told us we were welcome to come in at anytime!" said Moses Jr.

The young star and his father will be at Alabama's spring game on April 20. Moses has no plans of making an early commitment to any school at this time.
