Recruiting: Nation’s No. 1 LB Dylan Moses to visit Miami Hurricanes

It appears the Hurricanes are in the game with Dylan Moses.

Moses, rated as the top linebacker in the 2017 recruiting class — or top all-purpose athlete, depending on which website you like — said he will take one of his five NCAA-allotted official visits to Miami. He’ll watch the Hurricanes host Florida State on Oct. 8.

That’s one of three rivalry games Moses wants to see this fall, and you can be sure he’ll be assessing the other sideline as much that of the host school. He will also visit UCLA for the USC game, and Ohio State for the Michigan matchup. Alabama and Texas are his other two destinations. noted that Moses, who was offered by hometown LSU before he entered eighth grade and was committed for about three years, is also considering the Tigers.

Moses is rated the No. 2 overall player in the nation by 247Sports. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana transferred to Bradenton-IMG Academy for his senior season. He also plays running back.

Clearly, outslugging the nation’s top programs for Moses would be a coup for Mark Richt and defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, who recruited a strong linebacker class in 2016 (Shaq QuartermanMichael Pinckney and Zach McCloud project to play a lot this fall). The Miami-FSU game is already vital for recruiting, and adding Moses to the list of top prospects likely to be in attendance makes a win even more important for the Hurricanes.
