Moses impressed with Longhorns

It didn't take 2017 five-star LSU commitment Dylan Moses (Baton Rouge/University Lab) long to figure out what Charlie Strong is all about in his first workout with Strong at Texas' first camp of the summer.

The new man in charge in Austin is all business.

"The camp, itself, was really fun," Moses said. "It really impressed me because I didn't think it was going to be that hard because the last camp I went to I only went to half of it. I only did the first session. This time I did the whole session and it was a different outcome. I didn't expect it to be this way."

That last camp was under the guidance of Mack Brown. Like Brown's staff, Strong and his staff are doing what they can to stay in the mix with Moses despite him being committed to LSU. So far they are doing a good job.

"The campus, the people, the coaching staff, the players. It's real cool," he said. "I love it here.."

"The campus, the people, the coaching staff, the players. It's real cool," he said. "I love it here. Coach Strong, being that he is new, I haven't gotten to talk to him that much but I can tell that he is a laid back guy and is really cool. He is going to be a great coach this upcoming season."

As for Texas' sells pitch for presumably the top player in the country for 2017, they are keeping it simple.

"Everything is bigger in Texas," Moses said of what Texas' sells pitch has been. "It's way better."

The Longhorns have a steep hill to climb considering all the attention he's already gotten and will continue to receive.

He also has offers from Alabama, Arizona State, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M and UCLA.

Moses, who has already become a nationally known name, is taking it all in stride.

"I just do what I do and don't let it get to my head," he said. "I keep my composure and don't forget who I am. I just keep doing me."

Dylan's father, Edward Moses, has been teaching his son the ways of a linebacker since he was young and would prefer for him to play that position in college even though he's capable of being a running back too. Moses played both at camp this morning but stuck with linebacker in the afternoon.

"I really don't care but I do think that linebacker is where I'm going to make my money at in the future," he said. "Linebacker is really in my blood. I can play that like it's the back of my hand. I really know that position."
