Alabama makes scholarship offer to an eighth grader, who already had an offer from LSU

this is a discussion within the College Community Forum; Given the incredible job Nick Saban has done recruiting for Alabama we probably also should just go ahead and assume that his latest target, linebacker/running back Dylan Moses, is going to be a star. Just not for a pretty long ...

Alabama makes scholarship offer to an eighth grader, who already had an offer from LSU

Given the incredible job Nick Saban has done recruiting for Alabama we probably also should just go ahead and assume that his latest target, linebacker/running back Dylan Moses, is going to be a star.
Just not for a pretty long time, considering Moses is in middle school.
Moses is an eighth grader from Baton Rouge (La.). AL.com reported that Alabama offered the scholarship over the weekend, at the Crimson Tide's Junior Day event. Even though that sounds crazy to make scholarship promises to an eighth grader, Moses already has an offer from LSU as well.
Projecting a player's physical growth and development as a player before he gets to high school is almost impossible, even though Moses looks great now. Moses' impressive highlight video can't even tell the whole story because he is so much further along than the kids he's playing against. Moses is 6-1, 215 pounds already, so it's not much of a surprise he's much better than everyone his age. He went to LSU's camp for five years, which is why the Tigers knew of him, and the AL.com story said that Alabama took notice because of a highlight tape of the youngster.

Re: Alabama makes scholarship offer to an eighth grader, who already had an offer from LSU

University Lab eighth-grader Dylan Moses, who already has a 34-inch vertical jump and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds, continues to exceed high expectations.

And he and his family aren't necessarily surprised to receive scholarship offers from some of college football's top programs like Alabama and LSU.

They, however, just didn't anticipate those offers coming for another two or three years.

"How does it feel?" Edward Moses Jr. said as he began to laugh. "The days are definitely brighter knowing that he already has two offers of that caliber. You're talking about the team that was No. 1 in the nation at the time last year, and then seven or eight months later, the three-time defending national champions offer him. It was a wild moment, man. Really, I'm jealous of him. I'm just going to put it out there. I'm jealous of him. It's such a great opportunity, and I think it's just a testament to his work ethic."

Kid's already bigger than me, and I'm 35. What are they feeding kids these days?

My nephew got offers from a few schools in 8th grade, but he had about a 150 IQ.
