06:55 PM ET 02.26 | Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide have the top football program in the country and a large part of their success is Saban's ability to get ahead by beating his opponents to the punch and locking up some of the top talent from around the nation. That was on display when the Crimson Tide offered a scholarship to Baton Rouge (La.) athlete Dylan Moses, who is poised to be a star. Moses was invited to the Crimson Tide's Junior Day event over the weekend where he received the scholarship offer. The interesting part of this story? Moses isn't a junior. He is an eighth grade sensation.

Let's hope his football talent develops before his "rap" sheet develops like some of his future Crison Tide teammates.
