So to speak.
The class of 2013 hasn’t even been finalized yet and already programs like LSU and Washington are looking ahead. To 2017.
GeauxTigerNation reports that LSU has offered 14-year-old athlete Dylan Moses recently while Washington recently received a verbal, non-binding commitment from San Diego quarterback Tate Martell.
“I was kind of shocked when I first heard it — it was a dream come true,” Moses, 14, told ESPN.com. “I’ve always wanted to play for LSU since I was a kid, and now it’s coming true in front of my eyes.”
Both kids will be entering eighth grade this fall.
It’s not completely uncommon for programs to look way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way into the future with recruiting, but no one can realistically expect anyone to honor such a commitment on either side this early on.
Besides, doesn’t it something about today’s recruiting landscape when the following statement is released (about Martell):
“He is the youngest student to commit to a Division 1 school since Clarkson’s discovery David Sills committed to USC in 2010.”
