Alabama Offers a Scholarship to an Eighth Grader

I guess it’s good to plan ahead, but I was amazed to read yesterday that Nick Saban and Alabama are thinking ahead to the class of  2017. The University hosted a junior day over the weekend, and one of the players who showed up was Dylan Moses from Baton Rouge, La. Moses is not a junior in high school, in fact he’s not in high school he’s in the eighth grade and yes, he’s been offered a scholarship!

Nick 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.

And just when you think THAT’S crazy, the article also said this is not Dylan’s first scholarship offer. LSU actually offered a scholarship last summer before he started the 8th grade.
