University High School freshman-to-be Dylan Moses garnered a football scholarship offer from Notre Dame on Wednesday, according to a Twitter feed from his father, Edward Moses, Jr.
The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Moses emerged as one of the nation’s hottest young players a year ago when he was offered by LSU. Now the Class of 2017 recruit has a list of scholarship offers from 11 major Division I programs.
Alabama, Georgia, Auburn, Florida and Ole Miss are among the other Southeastern Conference schools that have offered Moses, who is scheduled to start at linebacker for the Class 3A Cubs in his first varsity season this fall.
