LSU's pursuit of five-star linebacker Dylan Moses has come to an end. 

Moses, a Baton Rouge native and former University High student, has signed and sent off financial aid paperwork to Alabama, allowing him to enroll in school in January. He announced the news via Twitter. 

LSU offered Moses a scholarship when was just 14 years old and held a verbal pledge from him for almost two years. He decommitted from LSU on Aug. 3, 2015, and later transferred to Florida's IMG Academy for his senior year.

LSU remained the favorite to land him until the 6-foot-2, 235-pound linebacker gave a verbal pledge to Alabama a week after LSU fired Les Miles.

Despite the coaching change, LSU continued to press Moses. He took an official visit to Baton Rouge this weekend but removed any doubt of his commitment to the Crimson Tide with his announcement Sunday. 

Moses is the nation's No. 8 overall prospect and No. 1 outside linebacker, according to 247Sports' composite rankings.
