Dylan Moses, the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker and Alabama commitment, has ended his recruitment.
Fresh off an official visit to LSU, Moses announced that he has signed and faxed his financial aid agreement to the University of Alabama. Several LSU players and recruits took to Twitter to wish Moses luck at Alabama.
Those documents are non-binding. They protect the recruit by ensuring the school holds a scholarship for them, but the prospect is still free to choose any school. The benefit for the programs is that it allows for unlimited contact between the football staff and the recruit, even once the dead period begins Sunday night at midnight. He technically can sign as many financial aid agreements as he wants, but Moses said he’s done with his recruitment.
Moses committed to Alabama after his official visit to Tuscaloosa for the Kentucky game in October. Even after his decision to commit to the Tide, there was always some belief that he ultimately would flip to LSU because he is from Baton Rouge and has remained close to the program.
That’s not happening now. Moses is locked in with Alabama.
“I thank every college that has given me the opportunity to live out my dreams and pursue a college education,” Moses said. “From this point, I’ll continue my training to get ready to participate in the Under Armour All-American game and then afterwards report to campus Jan. 8 to start the spring semester as an early enrollee. Like I always say, the best is yet to come. God Bless and Roll Tide.”
Moses joins 4-star athlete Chadarius Townsend as the two Class of 2017 prospects who have signed their financial aid agreements thus far. Three-star defensive back Kyriq McDonald will sign his agreement on Monday during a ceremony at his school.
