Tigers flip big-time 2025 commitment in Dean Moss

With the 2024 signed, sealed and delivered, the focus of the LSU coaching staff now shifts to 2025 and boy are they off to a hot start.

This past week, LSU landed a verbal commitment from one of the top 2025 overall players in the country in left-handed stick Dean Moss.

“Jay Johnson knows hitting better than any other collegiate baseball coach in the country,” he said. “That’s a great place to start (on why he chose LSU). The coaches he surrounds himself with are also full of knowledge and their focus on development was off the charts.

“My goal is to try and stay in centerfield and I think my speed and tools are improving, so the goal is to patrol centerfield in Baton Rouge once I arrive on campus.”

The 6-0, 173-pound IMG Academy product originally out of Atherton, California was originally a commitment to Vanderbilt, but had scholarship offers from virtually every top-tier collegiate baseball program in the country.

“I really wanted to go somewhere away from home,” Moss said. “My home is five minutes away from the Stanford campus. Baton Rouge is the perfect spot.


“The fit (at LSU) was just better than any other school I had been interested in and went and visited. I really love Jay (Johnson) and the entire coaching staff. Everything they are really doing just fits me as a player and I know that it is going to make me better. Mix that with the best atmosphere in college baseball and there really is no better place than Baton Rouge. I want to play in a packed ballpark and there is no more packed ballpark than Alex Box Stadium.”

Set to begin his fourth season at IMG Academy, Moss was a teammate of current LSU left-handed pitcher Cameron Johnson. “Cameron was definitely one of my closest friends last year (at IMG),” Moss said. “The joke goes that whenever I was in centerfield and he was on the mound I could basically sit down. I took Cameron at his word when he told me LSU was the place for me to be.”

Moss said his commitment to the Tigers is locked in.

“I won’t be making any more choices,” he said.
