LSU still leads for 5-star former commit Dylan Moses

Tigers still on top for nation's No. 1 2017 recruit

It's been about two months since Dylan Moses decommitted from LSU.

The dust has settled, but one thing's remained the same. LSU is still No. 1

Moses told Scout's Chad Simmons in the above video interview that the Tigers are on top despite his decision to decommit.

"I know everybody on that staff," Moses said. "Those people are like family to me. I've known them since I was 9-years-old, going around the facilities and talking to them. That's the reason they're No. 1"

Moses admits it was "pretty difficult" to drop his near two-year pledge to LSU. He made the decision, though, after talking to his parents, wanting to fully experience the recruiting process without the weight of a commitment.

Moses has made multiple visits to LSU since he made that decommitment, and he's on the same page with the LSU coaches.

"They weren't mad, but they were a little upset," Moses said when he first decommitted. "But when we sat down and talked about it, there was no anger. We just made a compromise, and it was cool."

Moses did provide a bit more insight into what led to his decommitment.

"Whenever I'd talk to other schools...they'd think they didn't have a chance," Moses said. "So I just cut the chain loose, so they can have their chances, so I can experience different things and have the full recruiting process."

One of those schools is Alabama. Moses currently has the Crimson Tide "right behind LSU." He's also interested in Florida State, a school he's visited multiple times. There are likely plenty other schools lining up for a crack at the nation's No. 1 recruit in 2017.

Leaving Louisiana though would be a difficult decision.

"It would depend on what my family says when I talk to them about everything," Moses said. "Going out-of-state, I'd really have to think about that."

Moses doesn't yet have an exact timeframe for when he'd like to finalize his recruitment. He is aiming for next fall though with hopes he can enroll early at the school he chooses.
