Wilkerson on 2017 LB Dylan Moses:
DYLAN MOSES’ FATHER TALKS LONGHORNS, SUMLIN
Class of 2017 superstar LSU commitment Dylan Moses has long been interested in the Longhorns. And he hasn’t shied away from showing it despite his long-standing verbal pledge to the Tigers.
Moses, who could be either a running back or linebacker in college, included both schools in his Top 5, which he released on New Years Day. But how much of a chance does Texas truly have with Moses? I caught up with his father, Edward Moses, to find out.
“We talked about his "Top 5" and Texas specifically,” Edward said. “He said he liked what Coach [Charlie] Strong is doing there.” One of the main reasons Moses likes the Longhorns, per Edward, is because of linebackers coach Brian Jean-Mary. “He said that he liked how the LB Coach taught him when he camped there over the summer,” Edward said. I asked Edward if he felt like his son had any second thoughts on committing to LSU so soon. He said Dylan didn’t but that he just wants to make sure that he made the right decision.
“Dylan is older now so he really decided to step back and watch the process from here on,” he said. He then added something that should get Longhorns fans to smile: “Strong wasn't at Texas when he committed.”
One school you’ll notice that isn’t on the list that many expected to be in the running early on is Texas A&M. Edward told me that the Aggies were the “strongest contender” to LSU for Dylan early on because his god-daughter runs track there. “But [Kevin] Sumlin’s staff was acting uninterested,” he said. “LSU was the best option at the time.” Uninterested in this?
“That’s the way we perceived their actions,” Edward said. “But in their defense Dylan was just leaving the 8th grade so I can understand them wanting to wait.” Added Edward: “[A&M] waited too long now the Horns have taken the Aggies spot.”
Another reason Texas is in Moses’ top schools is the familiarity Edward has with Strong as it relates to long time football coach Sam Goodwin, who coached them both at different schools. Edward played at Northwestern Sate University in Louisiana while Strong played under Goodwin at Central Arkansas.
“Destiny, or nah?” Edward asked. I guess we’ll find out.
Let's just say
Who are the top 25 players from TX to Miami around December 1, 2016?
That's our class...
A kid named Chauncy Smart from Auburndale, FL followed me today on twitter. @CSmart___ Appears to be a big Texas fan.
Auburndale is very much central FL and where Tracy McGrady grew up. And the kid started following lots of Texas fans recently on Twitter, so we'll see how this all shakes out. He also tweeted a link of his highlight video to some of the Texas coaches.

He looks pretty decent. I guess I'm okay with the offer.

Yaaaaawn (scratches butt). I'll be back in Feb 2016. My enchubby is too raw to start 2017 this early.
Yall hold it down I'll be back in a year and 11 months.
Stay tuned guys. The all important top $#@!ing 30.
If aggy doesn't make his top 30...well, he clearly doesn't have the right stuff to cut it there.
So he's going to name like 50% of P5 schools? Or is he going to throw some mid-majors in, for fun?
Yup. University of Phoenix and ITT Techs will be regulars now, for hullarious chuckles.
MUST tomatoe-pelt these unoriginal amateurs, or we invite it all on
Maybe it was a sarcastic tweet and he's actually mocking the other drama queens. Then it would be funny.
Ranking the Class of 2017 in Texas
The class of 2015 has signed so schools have turned their attention to the classes of 2016 and 2017. Lots of new offers have already started coming in over the past week or and there will be even more this spring as coaches hit the road to evaluate rising juniors and seniors in person.
GigEm247 has its first installment of Texas rankings for the class of 2017. Things are always fluid and there will definitely be top players on signing day in two years that were not on this list but all of the prospects listed should end up being elite recruits.
1. RB Toneil Carter – Houston Langham Creek: The 5-11/198 sophomore runs harder than perhaps any player in the state, regardless of class. He even makes plays on the kickoff coverage team. His offer list is already impressive and you can bet he will have his choice of any school in the country when all is said and done.
2. DT Marvin Wilson – Bellaire Episcopal: The 6-4/300 defender has been a star on varsity since his freshman year and helped the Knights to a state title this season. He needs to get a little bit stronger but has great footwork for his size. Texas Tech recently became the first to offer.
3. QB Shawn Robinson – Denton Guyer: It shows just how impressive the top group is in Texas because, in almost any other year, Robinson would be the No. 1 player in the state. He is electric as both a runner and passer, throwing for 2,800 yards and rushing for another 1,416 this year.
4. LB Baron Browning – Kennedale: The 6-2/210 defender struggled a bit with injuries this year but still showed why he is so highly-regarded. He can play either inside or outside but seems comfortable at MIKE, something colleges covet. He has a handful of offers already.
5. WR Hezekiah Jones – Stafford: One of the fastest players in the country for the class of 2017, Jones was also hobbled a bit this year with injuries. However, when he gets the ball in space, he is almost untouchable. A&M, Baylor, TCU and Texas State have offered so far.
6. RB J.K. Dobbins – La Grange: The 5-8/180 all-purpose back is also a standout at corner but he is too good to not put the ball in his hands. He may be on the shorter side but he is plenty thick and is a great receiver out of the backfield. TCU was the first school to offer.
7. LB Anthony Hines – Plano East: Hines, who holds over 60 offers, did well making the adjustment to public school as a sophomore. He has put on solid mass and could end up as an inside linebacker at the next level.
8. S Derrick Tucker – Manvel: Manvel has one of the best secondaries in the state and the 6-2/200 sophomore is one of the big reasons why. He loves to hit but can also cover from his strong safety spot. Missouri and TCU have offered so far.
9. OT Will Farrar – Fort Bend Travis: The 6-6/290 sophomore is a bit raw, as would be expected from a young offensive lineman, but he does a good job in both pass protection as well as drive blocking. Arizona State and Utah have offered so far.
10. TE Brock Wright – Houston Cy-Fair: The 6-4/220 sophomore is more of a pass-catching tight end than an in-line player but he does a great job of moving the chains. He can block if needed, though, and has a frame that can hold 250 pounds or so when he gets to college.
11. CB Chevin Calloway – Dallas Bishop Dunne: The 5-10/180 defensive back can be physical as a press corner if needed but he is at his best when running with receivers downfield. He stays in the hip pocket really well and has excellent instincts. Notre Dame and Ole Miss have extended early offers.
12. TE Kedrick James – Waco La Vega: The 6-5/235 sophomore also plays defensive end but he is a true tight end on offense. He puts his hand in the dirt and is a solid blocker but he also is surprisingly fast after the catch. Baylor has already offered the local standout.
13. ATH Jeffrey Okudah – South Grand Prairie: A wide receiver and safety, the 6-1/190 sophomore’s future is likely on the offensive side of the ball. South Grand Prairie had a ton of offensive weapons this year so he only had 19 catches but he averaged 24 yards per reception. He has a handful of offers so far.
14. QB Kellen Mond – San Antonio Reagan: Up until being injured late in the postseason, the 6-2/183 sophomore was a big reason the Rattlers were able to make a long playoff run this year. He is truly a dual-threat prospect, throwing for over 1,700 yards and running for over 1,100. Texas Tech has offered.
15. RB Eno Benjamin – Wylie East: At 5-10/190, Benjamin is simply a workhorse. In this day and age of platooning running backs, he can still easily handle 30 carries a game. He runs hard between the tackles and always grinds for extra yards. Iowa has given him an early offer.
16. WR Kadarrian Nixon – DeSoto: Though on the small side at 5-8/170, if Nixon gets the ball in space he is tough to catch. He has knack for finding seams in defenses. Louisville, SMU and Texas Tech have offered him so far.
17. QB Chris Robison – Mesquite Horn: Robison helped lead Horn on a deep postseason run. Though he is a dual-threat, he mostly stayed in the pocket as a sophomore, throwing for 3,858 yards and 44 touchdowns. SMU, TCU and Tulsa have already offered the 6-1/180 passer.
18. WR Damion Miller – Tyler John Tyler: Miller is a big body at 6-2/205 and is tough to bring down. John Tyler had one of the most explosive offenses in the state last year and he was a big reason why, averaging 23 yards per reception. He also plays on defense. Texas Tech has offered.
19. CB Kieston Roach – North Shore: The 5-10/170 defensive back may not have received his first offer yet but that will change very soon. Though he could add some muscle mass, he still plays very physically. He also showed exceptional ball skills, with four interceptions as a sophomore. He is the younger brother of Texas basketball signee Kerwin Roach.
20. OL Tyrese Robinson – McKinney Boyd: A high school tackle, the 6-3/270 sophomore has a serious mean streak and is very physical as a run blocker. He is very good at getting to the second level. Texas Tech recently became the first school to offer.
21. S Preston Dimery – Kerrville Tivy: A relatively new name on the radar, the 6-1/170 defensive back absolutely loves to hit. His film is incredibly fun to watch. He played his sophomore year at about 165 pounds so it will be scary to see what he can do once he fills out.
22. CB Adam Beck – Rosenberg George Ranch: The 6-1/175 sophomore played at Fort Bend Travis before transferring this offseason. He could end up moving to safety but, right now, he is another one of the big and physical cornerbacks that have started to become the norm in the state of Texas.
23. OL Wes Harris – Aledo: The 6-3/295 offensive lineman is already a two-year starter and a two-time state champion. A first-team all-state selection as a sophomore, he plays guard but could potentially line up at center as well.
24. QB Tracin Wallace – Fort Worth South Hills: It would be easy to label the 6-1/180 quarterback as an athlete but, even though he is an incredible runner, he does a good job of keeping his eyes up and has good touch on his deep ball. He threw for 30 touchdowns with only three interceptions and ran for 1,393 yards and another 22 scores.
25. WR Jaylon Jackson – Cedar Hill: Somewhat reminiscent of former Cedar Hill standout and current A&M wide receiver Laquvionte Gonzalez, the 5-9/150 sophomore does a little bit of everything. He lines up at running back, takes jet sweeps from the receiver spot and plays in the slot. Kansas and Texas Tech have offered.
26. S Jalen Pitre – Stafford: The 5-11/180 two-way standout could also be recruited as a wide receiver or running back but he is too good on the defensive side of the ball to keep him out of the secondary. He is probably best coming downhill but he still managed to pick off six passes as a sophomore.
27. OL Jack Anderson – Frisco: An undersized offensive tackle right now, the 6-3.5/280 two-year starter projects to play center at the next level. The Texas Tech legacy already has double-digit offers.
28. OL Tyler Castaneda – Round Rock: One of only two in-state sophomores to have already committed, the 6-3.5/270 Texas Tech pledge is the younger brother of Red Raider offensive lineman Robert. A high school guard, he has a strong base and could potentially end up as a center.
29. LB Loren Mondy – Dallas Bishop Dunne: The other committed prospect from the class, the 6-1/230 Arizona State pledge plays on the outside for Bishop Dunne but will likely move inside at the next level. He is aggressive to the ball.
30. CB Langston Frederick – Clear Springs: The 5-10/165 cornerback absolutely loves to hit. He plays like a strong safety but covers like a shutdown corner. He had one interception as a sophomore but forced several others while blitzing from the edge.
31. OT Trendon Rolen – Ennis: A first-team all-state selection at offensive tackle, the 6-4/300 sophomore needs to work on his technique but he has a very strong lower body. He does a great job as a run blocker and goes all the way to the whistle.
32. DT Joshua Croslen – Cibolo Steele: The 6-2/285 defensive tackle is a solid pass rusher from the interior. He had 11 tackles for loss and four sacks as a sophomore. He could end up as a three-tech or possibly even noseguard at the next level.
33. RB Terio Brown – Humble: The speedy 5-8/160 all-purpose back draws rave reviews from opposing coaches. He changes directions on a dime and is great at making defenders miss. He could also potentially be a slot receiver.
34. DE Spencer Misko – Keller: The 6-4.5/230 defensive end has a great frame that still has the potential to add quite a bit of good weight. He does a good job of holding up his blocker against the run.
35. TE Chance McLeod – Victoria East: The 6-3.5/215 sophomore had a very solid receiving season for a tight end this year. He caught 38 passes for 577 yards and five touchdowns, earning MaxPreps Sophomore All-American honors.
JUST MISSED THE CUT: Bellaire DE Alexander Duke, Henderson WR Trestan Ebner, Center WR Octavius Evans, El Paso Americas RB Joshua Fields, Richmond Foster WR CeeDee Lamb, Crosby CB Taylor Perry, Katy Seven Lakes OT Kenneth Pleasant, Plano West ILB Mohamed Sanogo, Frisco Lone Star QB Jason Shelley, Henderson S Lakendrick Van Zandt
agree with deech, get em both and call it a class, win 4 NC's ron powlus style
kidding aside, I'm all about Robinson but that back's hudl film is ridiculous. the fact he's a badass on special teams just kicks it up even more, hilarious $#@! watching him cover kickoffs, looks like a vidya game. the private school DT though has no biz being on the same level as those other two with competition factored in.
wtf do i/we even care though
My comment wasn't about taking both. My comment was with bevo pls ridiculously calling Carter a scrub.
Carter's film looks a lot like Malcolm Brown
