    Any reason why you needed to include CU in the thread title? Seems unnecessary.

    Stupid to offer a 8th grader to be though. Too much can change.

    Absurd. Washington could be 2 coaches removed from Sark by the time he sets foot on campus

    Hope this kid pans out better than the last blue chip QB named Tate.

    This is everything wrong with college sports. I don't know what is worse, schools offering scholarships to kids in middle school, or ESPN writing about it.

    Before this, the only time I ever heard of a kid getting recruited that young, it actually worked out pretty well. Some guy by the name of "Champ." I think he plays for the Broncos now.

    Are we sure this kid doesn't have a Dominican Republic birth certificate.

    And yes I agree that it is ridiculous to be recruiting kids this young.

    Agreed this is ridiculous. First of all why is UW even allowed to talk to middle schoolers? What if the kid injures himself? Is UW planning on honoring that commitment they made to him? Guessing no. It is a terrible move for the school, team and kid to have 14 year old committing to play in 4 years. I HATE the NCAA and their insane rules..... but this is one of those times i wish they would step in and say ok enough is enough. I mean come on they have rules talking to recruits parents while in the bathroom but no rule about recruiting a kid who hit puberty 6 months ago?

    This kid probably can't get the grades required to get into CU anyway. Sark will move on in a few years so maybe the kid will change his mind, do the right thing and commit to Nebraska when the chips are down. LOL!

    He has maintained over a 3.0 GPA so far in high school. If you read the article you would have known that.
