According to the video this kid is 6' 205 and is in 8th grade. Bama and LSU have already offered. I know it is stupid early for this kid, but I'd like to get some input from JC and whomever else. Who does he remind you of at such an early state? How do you see him projecting out in the future? I know these are extremely tough to answer because he is so young, but this just intrigued me and I'd love to hear anyones opinions. Manchild is the only way to describe him..

Hope this kid doesn't have the same fate as me. I was a monster in 7th and 8th grade. But now I'm 26 and EXACTLY the same size, only slower and less athletic. I didn't grow at all after middle school.
Wow. The 2:10 mark is flat out hilarious.

I find it hard to believe that he's the proper age for 8th grade. The kid looks like he has a mustache growing. Is this a Danny Almonte situation?
A guy in my school had a FULL beard in 8th grade and he was the same age as use, of course he was Persian...
Res ipsa loquitur...Let the good times roll
Consider yourself lucky my man. I did not start growing until the end of my Junior year. I was 5' 2" until the Summer before my Senior year. High school sucked balls!!!!
Just watched it and spit water all over my computer screen.
No offense to recruiting analysts but nothing about this kids tape impressed me except that someone with a 18 year olds body can dominate 14 year olds. Be interesting to see how he turns out but right now its just a big kid beating little kids.
Don't they do it by weight not age? They must not have enough kids where he lives because some of those kids were REAL small. Around here they would stick him with the older kids or on JV. Really no excuse for him not to be on a JV squad where there would be kids his own size.
Well he was invited to alabamas junior day and received an offer. So id say they probably see something there...
He literally tackled the kid by throwing one of his players at him
Yeah. We don't know if thats based on the assumption he'll keep growing or because of what he can do now against 18 year olds. I was just commenting that based on his film there is nothing special there.
Happened on the article below yesterday. Amazing story.
LSU actually offered last summer, after his 7th grade year.
Turns out he was concentrating on track at the time, had a weekend off, and took the opportunity to attend LSUs football camp.
He turns in a 4.46 40 time, a 9'3" broad jump, and a 34" vert, while measuring 6' 205lb
LSU offers on the spot, much to the surprise of his dad.
Just dawned on me, he was 14 after his 7th grade, will be 19 upon graduation from HS.
The article also shows that his dad has been working with him on the typical football camp measurables, 40 time, broad jump, and vert jump.
Likely, he's been redshirted by his dad for athletic advantage.
Another Todd Marinovich?
I heard Saban was at a fertlity clinic and recently offered sperm.

Heard about this yesterday of Pardon the Interruption and I agree 100% with Wilbon (never thought id say that) but this is ridiculous. NCAA football has no shame. The kid isnt even in high school, let him be a freakin kid for a little while. Looks and sounds a lot like his dad is getting him ready for the NFL combine at 14, wonder what his test scores look like in school. I hope the kid does well and gets into any college he wants, but lets wait to crown him the next whoever until his nuts finish dropping.
i see a 30 for 30 in about 10 years coming about this kid
