Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker Dylan Moses, a projected first-round pick in 2020, announced on Friday that he will return to school for his senior season.

Following much deliberation, including over an issue with liability insurance, Moses released a statement on Twitter revealing that he will return next season and play with his brothers one last time.


The 21-year-old was one of the best linebackers in the country before he suffered a torn ACL shortly before the 2019 season began. It served as a crushing blow for Alabama’s defense, losing the All-American linebacker coming off a season with 10 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.

Alabama already received good news when offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood announced he would return next season. Now, the Crimson Tide await quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s decision on Jan. 6.
