In the world of sports, comparisons are always going to be made. Up-and -omers are sometimes unfairly compared to the greats, the game changers, even the legends. Such as in the case of Dylan Moses, a high school junior, who verbally committed to the LSU Tigers when he was in the eighth grade.
Moses, who earned a five-star rating from 247 Sports, stands at a whopping 6-2 and weighing in at 225 pounds.
The running back/ linebacker came out with a hype video that is comparing him to LeBron James, Ray Lewis and Bo Jackson. This may be deemed premature, as he can easily change his mind about playing sports and/or going to LSU in the fall of 2017.
The expectations that minors have to live up to is almost seemingly impossible, becoming a legend before they can legally vote.
Moses’ video, brought to us by Bleacher Report Studios, states that “Hype is just a word”. There is no doubt that this kid is physically gifted or a hard-worker but to put such expectations on him is almost unfair to him.
Young athletes are exploited through their talents and are expected to follow in the footsteps of the greats before them; however, this video does not show that Moses is still a kid.
A lot can happen in the span of two years, before he even gets to LSU. One thing is certain; LSU knows how to make public statement, a new screen in the offseason, the rivalry between Alabama, and now a flashy new recruit.
