Eighth-Grader Reportedly Offered Scholarship by Alabama
The Alabama Crimson Tide already has the No. 1 recruiting class in 2013 after winning back-to-back BCS National Championships, but apparently that’s not enough for iconic Alabama coach Nick Saban. The disciplinarily-sound Saban has reportedly offered a scholarship to Dylan Moses, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound eighth-grader from Baton Rouge, La. We all know Saban can recruit literally anyone he wants, but an eighth-grader? C’mon, man…
This kid may be huge for his age and a beast on the football field, but he probably hasn’t even started shaving yet, much less thinking about college yet. And why in the world does the NCAA allow coaches to even talk to eighth-graders, much less offer them scholarships? That’s just insane!
Think about it: would you want Saban coming into your home and chatting up your 12-year-old about how he can win national championships and play in the NFL if he just signs on the dotted line? No! That’s creepy! These are children. Yes, high school seniors are kids too, but they are actually looking for a college to attend at that point in their lives. These younger kids are still trying to figure out puberty!
We know the recruiting process is getting more and more extensive, but a line has to be drawn somewhere. Before long, there will be scouts to watch all Pop Warner players who are very large in stature for the age.
