Moses Talks LSU

There are plenty of storylines from LSU's July camp, although the most intriguing has to be the emergence of 2017 prospect Dylan Moses. Read further as the local Baton Rouge product talks about getting an early offer from LSU, and his father - attorney Edward Moses - also chimes in with his thoughts.

Edward Moses said he was floating on cloud nine after his son, '17 DB/RB Dylan Moses, was awarded an early offer from LSU after running a 4.46 (and performing at a high level) at the Tigers' July camp - which wrapped up today.

"Considering that Dylan was going against high school players, I thought everything looked good at the camp," said Edward, who resides in south Baton Rouge and is a New Iberia native.

"He fumbled a little but did well. I thought the camp went well. I think LSU offering Dylan is a testament to the work he's put in over the years. Many grown men couldn't have handled the work he's done. Our intent was to go to Alabama this week after LSU, but it looks like we're staying here. We (Moses family) bleed purple and gold."

Dylan (6-0, 205) talked about LSU.

"I really like LSU," he said. "I like their coaching staff. They really knew me before the camp. Their coaches told me to do my best because they had something in store for me after camp (offer).

"I can't even explain how I feel right now. People have been treating me differently. I wasn't expecting to run a 4.46 at the camp. My times in the past had been around 4.5 to 4.6. This year, I'm going to focus on my grades, and next year I'll focus even more on football. This weekend, I have a track meet (tune-up meet in Covington, Louisiana) where I'm trying to run a 10.9 in the 100."

At the end of the month, he'll compete in the AAU National Track Meet in Humble, Texas.

Dylan, who posted a 34-inch vertical and a 9-3 broad jump at LSU, has one more year of junior high remaining at University Lab (enrolled following a fabulous career at Broadmoor Middle).

With dad hailing from New Iberia - and maintaining a practice with a partner who is based in New Iberia - residents of Iberia Parish hope that the Moses family will move back to south-central Louisiana at some point (soon).
