Now it is out of control. We sometimes have seen this as a part of college basketball, but rarely does it happen with football.
Nick Saban is one of the best recruiters in college football, and being the head coach of National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide certainly doesn’t hurt. He is aggressive, and is willing to do whatever it takes to lock down a blue chipper. Even if said player is only in the eighth grade.
Alabama has extended a scholarship offer to Dylan Moses of Baton Rouge, LA. This is one of the bigger ‘kids’ you will ever see. He is already 6’1″ and weighs 215lbs. He is already built to play at the college level. This isn’t the first offer the kid has received, as LSU also gave him a scholarship offer a year ago.
“We met with Coach Saban after lunch, and he talked to Dylan about his future and what he needed to do to achieve his potential as a student and as a football player,” Dylan’s father Edward Moses said. ”When he said he was offering Dylan a scholarship, we asked a lot of questions just to make sure we knew exactly what he meant. Coach Saban said the Alabama staff believes Dylan has a chance to be the best player in the country in the Class of 2017 and they were ready to offer him a scholarship. That’s when the fireworks started going off in our heads.”
My only question, what if this kid grows another 6 or 7 inches and puts on 50-60 pounds? Will they pull the deal because they don’t need just another run of the mill offensive lineman? I mean, Bammer breeds those kids.
College football is a cut-throat business.
