Five-Star Wants to Visit the Longhorns

Do the Longhorns have a legitimate chance with the No. 1 player in the country for 2017?

He was named a five-star on Scout in April of 2014. That was his freshman year and no prospect in on any recruiting service has been ranked that as a football prospect.

He measured in at 6-foot-2, 227 pounds at The Opening New Orleans Regional and he became the first 2017 prospect invited to The Opening Finals at the end of the day.

Texas has been after Moses going back to the Mack Brown days. He had offers from Texas,Alabama and LSU before he got to high school.

Charlie Strong and company have expressed interest in him since the day they arrived, and that has really gotten the attention of Moses and his family.


The odds of getting 2017 five-star Dylan Moses (Baton Rouge, La./University Lab) to back off his LSU commitment are slim.

But if he were to do so the Longhorns would be one program he’d definitely consider switching allegiances to.

HD caught up with Moses’ father, Edward, on Wednesday and he said that his son was still interested in the Longhorns and that he’d likely visit UT again at some point.

When exactly that will be is unsure.

“Not sure,” Edward said. “Have to see what Coach Strong has coming up.”

There are several factors in play here that make Texas a contender should the superstar athlete decide to open things up.

One of those is Brian Jean-Mary. When Dylan camped at UT last summer he really enjoyed the way BJ coached him up.

Another reason is Strong. He wasn’t at Texas when Dylan committed to LSU.

Strong and Edward played college ball under the same coach, Sam Goodwin – Edward at the University of Louisiana and Strong at Central Arkansas.

“Destiny? Or Nah?” Edward said.

I guess only time will tell. But UT has definitely carved out a spot should something happen.

It could be a whole lot of nothing, or the beginning of something that could send shock waves throughout the country. Stay tuned with HD to see if Moses will eventually visit Texas again.
