Alabama Commit Dylan Moses Wins High School Butkus Award
Alabama is making a great case for the title of ‘Linebacker U.’
A day after Alabama senior Reuben Foster took home the Butkus Award as college football’s top linebacker, Crimson Tide commit Dylan Moses claimed the same award at the high school level.
The IMG Academy senior was surprised by Dick Butkus himself during the team’s banquet on Monday.

The award came hours after Nick Saban and Tosh Lupoi visited their five-star recruit.

Moses, who has been recruited by Alabama and LSU since he was in 8th grade, could be next in a long line of elite linebackers in Tuscaloosa. Three of the past eight winners of the Butkus Award have been Nick Saban players. Rolando McClain won in 2009. C.J. Mosley won in 2013. And now you can add Foster to the list.
Moses his finished his senior season ranked in the top 10 nationally.
