Alabama offers 8th Grader a Scholarship

Nick Saban

Nick Saban offered Dylan Moses, an eighth grader, a full-ride football scholarship to the University of Alabama. Moses is 6’1″ and 215 pounds.

Dylan MosesThis is ridiculous. Moses will not enter college until 2017. Moses will be a Freshman at University Lab High School in Baton Rouge. He is 14.

Moses’s father told,

“We got the invitation to come to Alabama’s Junior Day a few weeks ago and to be honest we were kind of surprised. When we got there, Coach (Burton) Burns took us around and introduced us to the entire coaching staff and they all seemed very interested in Dylan. They treated him like a five-star recruit.”

“We met with Coach Saban after lunch and he talked to Dylan about his future and what he needed to do to achieve his potential as a student and as a football player. When he said he was offering Dylan a scholarship, we asked a lot of questions just to make sure we knew exactly what he meant. Coach Saban said the Alabama staff believes Dylan has a chance to be the best player in the country in the Class of 2017 and they were ready to offer him a scholarship. That’s when the fireworks started going off in our heads.”

The kicker is this is not the 14 year-olds first BCS college offer. LSU already offered Moses a scholarship before his 8th grade season.
