I don't think they would.
Moten doesn't necessarily have a commitment they'd take right now (see Ray Wingo for a guy they made wait a bit, recent example). He might, but we don't know that.
If there are two spots open, and Strong REALLY likes Mizzou (as rumored) and sees one of those spots filled early, it puts a little more pressure/number crunch on him to commit early. Maybe speeds up that decision.
Plus, remember that RBs are often the best athlete on the team. Those guys often are moved to other spots. Marquise Doherty is a great example of that... he plays RB in HS and might even show as a RB in the recruiting systems, but he's truly an ATH who could play RB, slot WR, outside WR, CB, or S.
