IMG Academy in Bradenton is now on spring break, affording an opportunity for the numerous elite prospects at the school to travel the country and take some visits. No. 2 prospect Dylan Moses, the 6'2, 220-pound linebacker originally from Louisiana, will take advantage by heading home, where he'll watch the LSU Tigers go through spring practice.

Two other schools will also receive visits in the next week, according to his protected Twitter feed -- the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas Longhorns.

While in Austin, Moses will get a look at the new offense run by Sterlin Gilbert, as well as a young and talented linebacker corps that includes rising star Malik Jefferson.

The Longhorns are currently one of the schools in the top five for Moses chasing the Crimson Tide, currently the leader for the nation's best outside linebacker. In those efforts, head coach Charlie Strong and company will have to convince Moses that Texas is the best fit for him.

"The best fit is mainly... I mean, it's football, but at the same time I would like to have a relationship with my coaches -- basically have that type of family thing, you know," Moses told ESPN. "You know, I would like to play on a good defense, you know, have, like, people surrounded by me that I know is gonna' make plays if I don't make 'em. You know, just be secure ... I want to feel at home, so that's just the best thing for me."

A top three is likely from Moses at some point before his senior season and he plans to announce his final decision on ESPN during the Under Armour All-American and then enroll early at the school of his choice.
