They called him their “1A,” but Rivals.com declined to list University High star and LSU commitment Dylan Moses as its No. 1 prospect in its initial 2017 Rivals 100 released Monday.
That distinction instead went to defensive tackle Marvin Wilson of Houston Episcopal. Moses (6-2, 225) came in at No. 2, though with Rivals’ Mike Farrell saying it was a close call.
“It’s a strong stop five with Moses essentially 1A right now I believe,” Farrell said. “He’s a dynamic athlete and just dominates at either running back or linebacker, whatever position he chooses to play. If he grows into that edge rusher many predicted, watch out.”
Rivals lists nearly two dozen scholarship offers for Wilson (6-4, 320), including one from LSU.
Moses, who has been committed to LSU since September 2013, still has two seasons left to play at U-High. He is listed as the No. 1 prospect for 2017 by 24/7 Sports and according to Scout.com. ESPN does not yet have prospect rankings for 2017.
