    My son used to run summer track against him, as well as Bradley Sylve's little brother. At 8 years old, you could tell that some of them were going to be special.

    Wow, those are NFL Combine numbers if correct. The kid must be a special athlete.

    You ain't lying! With those numbers I agree with the offer! Amazing for a kid his age.

    It never ceases to amaze me concerning the amount of talent that state seems to produce every year. We`ll talk about the ups and downs that the state of Alabama may have from year to year but has Louisiana ever had a "down" year?

    Maybe I'm in the minority but I don't think a 14 year old should be bothered with recruiting calls etc.

    I don't think a school should be able to offer a scholarship until after the kids junior season is over.

    As far as ability...this youngster looks amazing but I just think it's too young to be actively recruited.

    ...just my opinion.

    They actually had a graphic on espn about how alabama has been the best recruiting state over the last several years outside of Florida Texas California. I think Louisiana actually has been somewhat down the last few years.

    High school football in the state is getting much better. Programs are learning a major component in successful high school teams is the pee-wee team. High school coaches are putting in their system in the Jr. Highs and the pee-wees.

    I have to wonder about the graphic ESPN showed. Is that based off their recruiting analysts and rankings or how the recruits from the states did in regards to college and professional football?

    I tend to agree but if the kid wants to be recruited, and the schools want to recruit him, then I don't really feel like my opinion matters too much.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    Nailed it.

    I'm not a fan of it. Wouldn't let my child go to camps or be recruited at that age. However, he and his family don't seem to mind.

    Incidents like this are where coaches are hypocrites for telling fans and the media they make recruiting so big.

    Based on recruiting rankings I believe...I've seen it several times.

    Re: Alabama and LSU Offer a 14 Year-Old Recruit

    It is early to start it and given the changes to recruiting, it could turn into a circus. There is a poster over on SECrant (Tigerdroppings affiliate) claiming to be his dad that expressed his opinions.

    There is a good bit of competition for spots at select schools. Given the value of a full-ride scholarship (with possible out of state tuition) plus education costs are increasing much faster than COL index, and both AL and LSU seen as NFL training grounds, I can't say that I blame them. (From someone with 2 in college right now.)

    A lot of variables between now and his signing day though.
