Alabama coach Nick Saban offered a scholarship to eighth grader Dylan Moses of Baton Rouge, La., after the school hosted a junior day over the weekend.
"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," Dylan's father Edward Moses Jr. told AL.com.
"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."
Moses was also offered a scholarship from LSU last summer before he entered eighth grade.
