Dylan Moses may have withdrawn his commitment from LSU in August to explore his options, but the highly sought-after recruit is in Les Miles’ corner.
With questions swirling about Miles’ job status in the wake of three straight double-digit losses, the nation’s No. 1 prospect for the class of 2017 sent a text message to SEC Country on Monday night in defense of LSU’s embattled coach.
“To be honest, I personally think it’s wrong,” Moses wrote. “I have a good relationship with coach Miles, and you have to think about it. Before the three losses, people weren’t talking about firing him because LSU was undefeated. …I just wish they’d give him some slack.”
The University Lab star played alongside Miles’ son, Manny, and said he has a close relationship with the coach. Moses claimed LSU “has a bright future” and noted how many players the Tigers have lost since their undefeated regular season in 2011.
“I think they’re doing a great job as far as the rebuilding process goes,” the 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker wrote. “I think maybe next season they’ll be ready. Like I said, it’s all a process. Coach Miles knows what he’s doing. You’re not going to become great overnight. It takes time and patience. God has a plan for these guys and coach Miles.”
Moses told SEC Country he hasn’t decided how Miles’ possible departure would affect his recruitment.
