LSU has officially landed the first pledge in the class of 2017, and it’s a good one. Dylan Moses out of Baton Rouge (La.) University Lab is only a freshman but he’s been one of the nation’s most highly-coveted prospects since middle school. After landing offers from LSU and Alabama while still in eighth grade, Moses quickly emerged as a national phenom, and on Sunday, he pledged to his hometown school.
While commitments from freshmen are often nothing to get excited about due to the fickle nature of recruiting, it stands to reason that Moses’ pledge will stick. The 6-foot, 220-pound 15-year old goes to high school just steps from the LSU campus and he’ll have plenty of support to stay firm with the Tigers throughout. On Friday night, Moses had more than 20 tackles and a 60-plus yard touchdown on his only carry of the game.
There have been plenty of more conventional commitments being made around the southeast along with the rare freshman verbal. Georgia Tech landed a three-star offensive guard out of Tampa in Gary Brown, Florida State went up to New Jersey for a tight end commit in Ryan Izzo and Duke stayed at home to pick up in-state running back commit Shaun Wilson.
On Friday, CSS will bring you a game loaded with future college stars when Norcross takes on Mill Creek. The headliner is the No. 1 defensive end in the country as rated by 247Sports in Lorenzo Carter. Also on the Blue Devils are four-star Myles Autry, Tennessee-commit Kevin Mouhon and three-star Miami commit Chris Herndon. Mill Creek counters with a trio of talented running backs consisting of DeVozea Felton, Carter Governale and 2015 247Sports four-star Johnathan Hawkins.
