He is just huge compared to his competition. Won't happen in college.

I was his size when I was 14. I never grew, others grew around me. It made me stand out less. And I completely expect that to happen to this kid when his offers get pulled in two years.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Lots of time for Urban to flip him.

So does that mean he starts getting paid now?

Have to wonder what this kid will look like when he faces competition his own size and speed.

had a lot of friends peak around that age, they all ended up getting shin splints and leg problems for their whole high school career constantly.

Is this his 8th grade tape? It sure looks like it and if so of course he is dominating like crazy. The hype kids get at 14 and 15 is crazy kids can't live up to that all the time. Lets wait and see where he is in two years when he is playing against kids his own size for a few years.

So did Miles hold a team vote about this?

So when do we offer Danny Clark to keep him away from The Hat?

He's the kid ESPN profiled a few months back (story: wow, they really do start recruiting early, don't they?!). The commentary surround him was nothing short of "this generation's Bo Jackson."
We shall see.

I don't know if that quote is direct from the ESPN commentary, but if it is, they are the dumbest network in the world.  There will never be another Bo Jackson.  Ever.

No, it wasn't from the article. It was how it seemed college coaches were talking about him.

Not gonna hate on the kid because he's obviously a good athlete, but there should be a rule that a kid can't commit until his junior year of high school.  This is way too early.

As dumb as I think some NCAA rules are, I completely agree. I would say coaches shouldn't even be allowed to contact kids unless they have started their junior season. Two years of recruiting would be obnoxious enough, let alone four or five. He is clearly a good athlete, and even if he didn't get much bigger or faster, he would still be a solid recruit, but the dude is only 14.

...and Michigan still sucks.

Why make more rules, the NCAA will just turn the other cheek anyway.  Besides, the sec has their own rules that they fellow.  Rule #1 is anything goes.

Being that big that early can be a blessing or a curse, depending on the mental aspect of the person. If this kid is a hard worker, having his frame set this early in life gives him a huge advantage. He can hit the gym hard and focus on his fundamentals without having to adjust too much to his growth in high school like other kids. If he tries to get by on his natural ability and the inherent advantages he already has, he won't turn out too well as other kids catch up in size and pass him with hard work off the field.

Well, he doesn't procrastinate with his decision-making, I'll give him that.

Lane Kiffin is pissed...he spent the last 4 years recruiting him.

The kid is a beast. He is shifty and fast for his age. When he pushed that tiny receiver into the runner I lol'd. That was some funny stuff. 

Bury me in my away jersey, with my buckeye blanket. A diehard who died young. Rip dad.

This reminds me of Bobby Knight recruiting Damon Bailey back in the day as an 8th grader.  Crazy.

I think people swooning over him is no different than those who swoon over Danny Clark. Granted Danny is already starting for his high school team and doing well, does throw a great ball for a freshman and is not just 6'0'' whatever like this kid, he is 6'3'' 189. I actually see nothing different in their middle school tapes from each other. Just bigger, faster kids dominating little middle schoolers.
I don't know. I just saw the tape on his high school preseason matchups, he was still a better player than most but didn't look all that dominant to me. I haven't seen the tape on Danny Clark's high school games but sounds like he is doing amazing. I'm not sure either are like someone like Clowney though.
top ranked player and top ranked QB for that class for now. We'll see.

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Wow.  I couldn't help but laugh at that brave little guy who ran out to block Moses at 2:10..  I'll remain skeptical until I see some JR/SR highlights, when he isn't a foot taller than everyone else on the field.  He looks like guys I've created on NCAA/Madden.

Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.
