Nation’s No. 1 prospect loves Herschel Walker, will visit UGA
Dylan Moses, the No. 1 overall player in 2017, is a big fan of Herschel Walker. Apparently, he’s also a big fan of UGA.
In a conversation with the AJC’s SECCountry.com this weekend, the 5-star from Baton Rouge, La., mentioned the Bulldogs among several other schools that have been recruiting him heavily since he decommitted from LSU on Aug. 3.
“I have a lot of interest in UGA,” Moses said. “I’ve always had a really big interest because Herschel Walker has always been my favorite player. I love his personality and his running style and what he went through and how he overcame it.”
Moses confirmed that he and his father, Edward, will be in attendance for UGA’s home game against Alabama on Oct. 3. Though his only visit to UGA came in the eighth grade, Moses says he’s expressed his interest in the program to the coaching staff.
However, the Bulldogs, like many other programs, trail LSU.
“I haven’t heard different,” his father told the AJC’s SECCountry.com. “They’re (LSU) still at the top, as a matter of fact. Nobody has replaced them yet.”
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker’s only unofficial visit of the fall came last weekend when he attended LSU’s game against Auburn. Originally, he was supposed to attend LSU’s home-opener against McNeese State, but the game was cancelled due to weather.
According to his father, he was impressed with the Tigers’ performance.
“I think he was pleased with the outcome and how the linebackers played,” his father said. “And, of course, Leonard Fournette did his thing on Auburn as well. That was exciting to him.”
Moses tells SECCountry.com that he may unofficially visit Texas A&M for its game against Alabama on Oct. 17 or its road game against Ole Miss on Oct. 24.
