Call it an unofficial visit.
Call it a homecoming of sorts.
Call it whatever you will, but the fact is that Dylan Moses has plans to visit LSU’s campus for a spring practice session when he returns to Louisiana next week.
Moses, the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker and the No. 2 prospect overall, is scheduled to visit the Tigers’ practice session during his high school spring break, which coincides with the third week of spring practice.
“Going to go watch (LSU football) spring practice next week!” Moses tweeted out on Saturday morning. “Gotta go check my boys out!!”
The five-star prospect is no stranger to LSU.
In fact, the former LSU commit made double-digit unofficial visits between September 2014 and October 2015.
Moses played his first three high school seasons as University Lab School (Baton Rouge, La.) before transferring to IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) for his senior campaign.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder pledged to the in-state Tigers as a 15-year-old in September 2013, but rescinded that verbal commitment last August.
What it means: Moses has been courted by most of the top college football programs in the nation since reopening his recruitment.
This, however, shows that LSU is in no way out of the race.
The notion that the Tigers are no longer in contention for Moses’ services are becoming more and more outdated, and in fact, this is a reminder that LSU carries some weight with the Baton Rouge, La., native.
Moses has longstanding relationships with numerous members of the LSU coaching staff and so many of the current LSU players, some of whom are former teammates and area friends.
A visit could sway Moses’ decision, but do not expect a commitment or major announcement to follow.
While the five-star linebacker continues to do his due diligence with college football’s top powers, the hometown Tigers will always be in the mix, despite conflicting reports.
This goes to prove it.
