The USC Trojans have taken recruiting to another level, getting commitment from 13 year old David Sills for the 2015 season.

13 year old, David Sills.

Huge news this, apparently the kid is a freak.

This is why the Trojans are renown for their recruiting. And apparently, the Trojans was Sills' preferred College for when he gets older. Talk about confidence.

High recruiting pedigree does not always translate into a great professional (let alone collegiate) career. Hopefully the kid doesn't get a hugely inflated ego and actually sticks to playing good football. This is an unfortunate spectacle in my opinion.

In the grand scheme of things, it's definitely not good at all. I think as long as this doesn't become a common thing where young High School students are being plucked by wealthy and powerful Colleges, it'll be OK.

Maybe Sills really is that good.

Considering he is only a kid, that's a big risk by USC.
He is a while off College and could flatten out (in a sense) before then.

Let's hope for their sake he's a star when 2015 rolls around.

Wow, he must be in a league of his own out there. This wouldn't be a great idea for other colleges to follow, imagine the busts that would come out of it.

They must think he has the right attitude and all along with his ability to be pursuing him at this age.

But keep in mind, they haven't actually recruited him as such. To my understanding, USC are unable to do that under NCAA guidelines. The kid still has to play quality football and remain fit in order to win that scholarship.

The PTI boys were talking about college Signing Day last week, and Wilbon expressed his disgust at how such national spotlight could be shone on kids. I have to agree. Consider how much pressure you're heaping onto these people at a progressively earlier age. That simply isn't fair - let them have their childhood, then start scrutinizing them on TV when playing college ball after they've come of age. Imagine how psychologically crippling this could be to a kid who doesn't end up making the grade.

Thats what I was thinking. Theres plenty of kids in any sport that stand out in the younger grades but when it comes to the big boy stuff they fall flat.
Hopefully this kid isnt one of them but its a big risk by USC.

As Kvlt said, the Trojans actually haven't recruited him yet, they've just got a commitment from him that when he turns 18, he'll be playing for them.

So in any case, if he does live up to his supposed potential, then he'll be a lock starter, if he isn't, he could play anywhere else or be a back-up QB at USC.
