    Must be an arbitrary thread, because we don't have a chance here

    #1 player? We'll see how long that sticks. Seems like he will certainly be an inside guy decent athlete good frame for his age...I like Keandre's film a lot more just better athlete and instincts with an awesome motor to boot with oozing potential... I'd like to see Urban be selective with offers on defense this year with the exception of DT. Take shots at prospects with lots of potential and freaky measurables and athleticism...more so than just going after the highest rated players.

    My thoughts exactly. Not the most instinctive, explosive LB I have seen. I was kind of shocked at the #1 myself. Time will tell.

    He's a 5* kid to me....too early for me to say if that means Top 5 or 25 but he's a kid you'd love to have.

    His size is phenomenal and he carries it well; would not be surprised in the least if he ends up 6'3 to 6'4 and 250 and playing with a hand in the dirt on the edge. That's ultimately where I see him but he can roam, actually looks very comfortable open in space. I've been following him for awhile (seems like every year or two there is a freshman phenom out of LA) and the kid has a knack for making plays and creating turnovers. He has some room to grow - his angles aren't the greatest and he makes up for it with his speed at the HS level but that won't cut it in college. He packs a wallop too.

    I've always just been so impressed with his play recognition - he reads and reacts on the fly, doesn't bite, real smart football IQ. You can put him in a 5-2, 4-3, 3-4 and he's going to stay on the field every time and let you blend looks, a DC's dream.

    Unique recruit - wish Chavis was still at LSU since that appears to be his destination but he woulda got a lot out of him.

    Thing is, he's an ATH more than a pure LB. Still learning the position as he was a RB prospect for a while. Reminds me of James Wilder from some years back that ended up at FSU as a big RB and then got lost in shuffle as he should've been a Defensive player all along. At least Dylan realizes with his size that he's better suited for defense.

    Good call...James Wilder is who he reminded me of as well.

    Visit science tells me he's definitely not going to Bama or Texas. Although Iowa State does stand a chance against Texas, lol.

    Everybody and their 5-star brother is looking to visit Ohio State right now, and that includes the nation's top linebacker.

    The five visits that Moses (6-2 225) has currently scheduled are for Alabama on October 1, Miami (FL) on October 8, Texas on October 15, UCLA on November 19, and Ohio State on November 26.
    That gives the Buckeyes the coveted final visit, which can often be the lasting memory. He then plans on committing in December.

    Moses originally committed to LSU when he was 15 years old back in 2013. He decommitted from the Tigers last August. He is from Baton Rouge and transferred to IMG this past winter. Obviously, LSU is still the popular pick for Moses, even though he has no official visit scheduled there. Though that shouldn't be too much of a concern for LSU considering his high school was actually on the LSU campus, so he already knows it very well.

    Usually you would think it would be darn near impossible to pry a Louisiana player out of Louisiana: however, he went to Florida (11 hours away) to attend high school. Columbus isn't too much farther, i.e. only 14 1/2 hours from Baton Rouge.

    Getting him out of Louisiana where he hears nothing but lsu and Bama talk to IMG where every top coach visits often is the difference maker. That opens a lot of eyes plus Bradenton is full of Midwestern transplants, less than an hour south of st Pete, Clearwater and everything south of there to the glades is all transplants. In Tampa we have more official Ohio state bars (4) than gator bars (2).
