According to Clint Brewster of Wolverine247 (FREE), the nation's top prospect in the 2017 class is waiting on his offer from Michigan. Dylan Moses, listed as a five-star outside linebacker and running back per the 247Composite, is yet another product from IMG Academy in Florida.

Michigan will host a section of their spring practice at his school's facilities (if the SEC lets them), so Moses will be able to observe the Wolverines put in work first-hand. Said Moses to Derek Tyson of ESPN,

"I've never really seen Michigan up close like that before and I've never visited the school either. It's just a great opportunity and you know, hopefully I can get an offer from them, because I don't have one yet."
