Now UCLA is offering football scholarships to 8th graders, and they picked a Texas QB
 
In the latest case of USC and UCLA engaging in a catty war of “anything you can do, I can do bigger,” the Bruins responded to word that USC handed a scholarship offer to eighth grade wide receiver by offering a scholarship to an eighth grade quarterback from another state.

As first reported by ESPN Los Angeles, UCLA became the first school to offer incoming high school freshman quarterback Lindell Stone. The future Southlake (Texas) Carroll High signal caller who recently graduated from the eighth grade at Southlake (Texas) Dawson Middle School was picked as a standout at a recent Elite 11 regional competition in San Francisco, at which he was cut from the national Elite 11 roster but earned plaudits from figures like former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer.

It's becoming very common these days. There are kids these days that are 6'2 200 pounds already in the 8th grade. While they are being offered so young, it's just to show these kids that they're on the radar and the school is a keeping a close eye on them. It's never a commitable offer.

It's the same with soccer in Europe.Thing is so many of these kids that are huge at that age only stand out due to the physical advantages they have at that age.When the smaller kids have a growth spurt the extra work they put into the fundamental side of the game makes them a better prospect.

Kids' sports is crazy enough already with every parent thinking their child is on the way to a college scholarship without actually introducing them at the junior high school level, :rolleyes: ... what a can o' worms.
