Defeat doesn't finish a man - quit does. A man is not finished when he's defeated. He's finished when he quits. - Richard Nixon
Rooh Tahhd Ron!
The NCAA should have put a stop this crap when Kiffin did it a few years ago. A college should not be able to "offer" anyone until their junior year in high school. The NCAA is a joke.
The problem is the NCAA has no power over verbal offers, just written ones. There would be too much he said she said if they tried to regulate these. I do wonder if they could eliminate contact with middle schoolers.
This is just ridiculous and any sane parent has to know that. He is still just a very, very young man and should be allowed to enjoy his youth without having added pressure put on him before he even plays his first high scholl football game. The things people will do just to be "first"!
And his commitment announcement to Alabama will coincide with his announcement that he has reached puberty. Let's hope that Saban doesn't offer him a grayshirt by then, or there could be real tears and a run to mommy. Could be more of a train wreck than the Philon announcement.
That offer means nothing. It just puts pressure on the kid.
I don't like it either, but I imagine the kid enjoys it. He knows how rare that is, and is probably walking on cloud nine. It definitely would be cool. I do think, though, that a college shouldn't be able to offer until at least a child is in high school, and maybe even tenth grade.
Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.
