A 9-year old “future STUD”

I, uh… have no words for this.

Why do I have the feeling Lane Kiffin is about to offer him?

    Like, uh, where does this kid live? Is choosing your high school a thing in Georgia? Without moving to another district?

    • It’s not unless your parents move or send a kid to private school which makes this whole thing ridiculously stupid.

        Maybe his parents decided to move to that HS district? He is 9.

          Parents do that all the time to get their kids into a certain program. I don’t recall ever seeing a “Commitment” announcement about it, though. I’m with ee, this is just silly.

        Most parents at a certain level have given up on or never had a plan. Just dreams. Their kid gets a look from a scout at 16 and they’re already spending that League money. They’ll move anywhere. It’s tough motivating that type of employee, I know.


  2. This is so stupid. Can’t parents let their kids be kids instead of making them grow up faster and faster?

    To the coaches at Grayson, is this a commitable offer?

    My 2 year old is slated to commit to his preschool in a few weeks. We’re having a hat ceremony and everything because why not?

    Well, personally, I was a little miffed at Kirbs when he didn’t show up to sign my grandson when he was born right there in Athens a few years back! He weighed in almost 11 pounds! I guess they aren’t scouting the birth announcements yet.

    Pretty soon we will be getting birth announcements or gender reveals (another out of control look at me moment) that include their commitment announcement.

    Self absorption starts at an early age, apparently.

    The picture on the original tweet is great. Little dude looks plain fierce, except for having what appears to be a giant head.

    That kid has a strong neck because it looks like that helmet weighs more than he does.

    Maybe it’s just fun.

    Like when your little league kid has a baseball card made.

      I was thinking that as well, but Maxpreps wouldn’t be involved? I’m not familiar enough with twitter to tell if it was a Maxpreps announcement or was sent to them.


    • When a kid has a baseball card made, his parents post it on social media for their friends to see … they don’t send it to the scout to show off their 9 year old.

    GHS has always been gross.

    I knew it was them before even seeing the graphic.

    it’s getting harder and harder for me to be a fan of middle school football as I watch the players exploited while not being able to profit off of their name, image, or likeness.

    All I know is if this kid turns out to be a player, and he doesn’t go to Georgia, people will complain that we didn’t pursue him like Clemson/Auburn/Bama/whoever did.

    I feel like this all got started with kindergarten graduation ceremonies.
