All of the recruits you have been drooling over have absolutely nothing on Dylan Moses. Having offers from schools such as Alabama, LSU and Texas probably means you are an elite player and have a bright future.

Now, try getting those offers when you are in the eighth grade and your recruiting class isn't until 2017. That is exactly what Moses is doing. Coaching staffs see so much potential and super-human growth that they feel the need to extend an offer immediately.

According to Max Olson of ESPN (paid link), Texas is the latest school to place an offer in front of the young man who hasn't even entered high school. Olson also reported that this is the youngest recruit Texas has ever offered.

Looking at his 247Sports profile, Moses can now add that offer to his collection that includes Florida State, LSU, UCLA, Ole Miss, Florida, Alabama and Nebraska.

Stack that up against any player in the country, and Moses is ready to skip high school and compete right now. No, literally. After all, there is a reason he is receiving all of these offers this soon.

Just check out the picture Mike Coppage of FOX Sports NEXT.com tweeted out when Moses was standing next to 2014 running back recruit Leonard Fournette.

Who is the kid here?

It is his abnormal frame at such a young age and his incredible athleticism that has helped him earn the attention of these prestigious programs. Capable of playing on either side of the ball, 247Sports list him as an outside linebacker, while Rivals took the smarter approach and considers him an athlete. He will thrive wherever you put him.

Moses has shown a lot of interest in both LSU and Alabama early on, taking unofficial visits, attending camps and junior days. But this kid has nothing but time on his hands and will probably change his mind often over the next four years.

Until then, Moses will continue to grow, improve his game and eventually become a recruit everybody is going crazy over when his recruiting class officially arrives.
