13 Year Old Commits to USC



Quote:
Guest Dad Joe Burris is thinking about 13-year-old quarterback David Sills, who has given a verbal commitment to play football for the University of Southern California -- while still in middle school:

The latest news dominating sports circles involves a 13-year-old quarterback from Delaware who has been offered a football scholarship to the University of Southern California, one of college footballís premier programs.

Seventh grader David Sills has verbally committed to USC (though he can back out of the commitment at any time) after reportedly being offered a scholarship by USC head coach Lane Kiffin, a 34-year-old mentor.

Now, I donít know how talented Sills is (as an 11-year-old he was hailed as being one of the best prospects ever in a Sports Illustrated piece) or whether that talent or his body will ever blossom into anything worthy of major-college football potential .

And keep in mind, until he signs a letter of intent (which comes much later), he is not legally bound to attend USC.

But at an age when it means so much to be popular among oneís peer groups, this kid must be having the time of his life right now. Even the most modest youngster would struggle keeping his ego in check.

It makes you wonder what frame of mind heíll be in a couple of years from now -- particularly if heís a good, even great, quarterback, but not the phenom that would warrant a scholarship offer at 13.

I donít know who this kid has in his corner advising him against the dark side of major college sports -- be it his parents, guardians, coaches or whomever.

But hereís what I do know: In the 18 years I spent as a sportswriter, I witnessed some of the greatest NFL quarterbacks in history _ including Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Steve McNair. And I donít recall any of them receiving this much attention as seventh graders. Thatís because at that age, none worthy of it. Itís just way too early to know.

The kid has nothing to worry about. Kiffin will be long gone by the time he's 18 years old.

Of course by then they'll probably be on probation and banned from Bowl games, but that won't matter because teams like the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs will be beating them on the field.

Oh come on now... We're still SC. We survived the Hackett years.
