After a week chock full of visits, Dylan Moses has released an updated top five.
The five-star outside linebacker out of IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) included a pair of SEC West powers — Alabama and LSU — in the list, as expected.
The nation’s No. 2 overall prospect named Texas his new leader after the Crimson Tide held onto that spot for a handful of months.
Alabama slipped into the No. 2 spot, with LSU sharing No. 3 honors with UCLA. Southern Cal rounded out the top-five list.
Moses spent Monday in Tuscaloosa, Ala., visiting the Tide. On Twitter, the elite defensive prospect expressed a high level of interest in the school, suggesting he was nearly ready to commit.
The linebacker then traveled home to Baton Rouge, La., where he took in not one, but two LSU spring practice sessions.
Moses spent Tuesday on the LSU campus meeting with players such as Leonard Fournette and getting acquainted with some of the coaches. Defensive coordinator Dave Aranda is believed to have impressed the five-star prospect, which may have helped the Tigers creep back into the thick of the race for Moses.
The nationally-touted linebacker traveled to Austin, Texas on Saturday and spent the day on the Longhorns’ campus. Not surprisingly, his updated top five reflected the successful visit.
Moses made that abundantly clear with a subsequent tweet to clarify Texas is his new No. 1 choice.
As with any recruitment, expect to have some maneuvering at the top, particularly between the top three choices, which includes Alabama and LSU.
The former LSU commit is believed to still hold his hometown team in high regard, but it’s clear both ‘Bama and Texas have edged them — as it stands today.
That, of course, will be a fluid situation moving forward.
