The official start of college football season is still a couple of months away, but recruiting never stops.
One recruit who’s already garnering an absurd amount of hype is Dylan Moses. Ranked as the second-best player in the class of 2017 by 247Sports.com, Moses is a linebacker/running back with an otherworldly blend of size, speed, athleticism and physicality.
As an 8th grader, Moses had already received offers from Alabama and LSU. He spent the first three years of his high school career at University High in Baton Rouge, but he recently transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida for his senior season.
While Moses is a one-man wrecking crew on the gridiron, his training can be just as entertaining. For your viewing pleasure, we put together some clips to illustrate his awesome athleticism.
Here’s a recent video of Moses squatting 500 pounds:
Ever seen a 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker with the nimble feet of a ballerina? You’re about to:
Moses’s hands seem to be naturally coated in stickum:
Moses’s Combine numbers are off the charts. According to NCSASports.org, he boasts a 4.46 40-Yard Dash, a 39-inch Vertical Jump and a 4.15 20-Yard Short Shuttle. Just for comparison, NFL All-Pro linebacker Khalil Mack posted a 4.65 40-Yard Dash, a 40-inch Vertical Jump and a 4.18 20-Yard Short Shuttle at the 2014 NFL Combine.
Moses wasn’t destined to be a top recruit—he had to work at it. According to an ESPN article from 2013, his middle school morning workouts consisted of 400 Push-Ups, 800 Sit-Ups, 10 minutes of Jumping Rope and a one-mile run. Moses started grinding at a young age, and he hasn’t stopped since, which is exactly why he’s in the position he is today. Just like every college football fan on the planet, we’ll be keeping close tabs on how this athletic freak performs throughout his senior high school season. Check out Moses’s highlights below:
