14 Year Old Verbally Commits To The LSU Football Program
Talk about recruiting early! Reports have surfaced that the LSU football program received a verbal commitment from a 14 year old football player from Texas.
I know what your thinking Tiger fans. A fourteen year old really? Well this kid isn't your average 14 year old boy!
This kid is 6-foot-4 and 190 pounds! WOW!
Quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann, the 14-year-old nephew of former Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer, has made a non-binding oral commitment to play at LSU.
Dinkelmann, an eighth-grader at Somerset (Texas) Junior High School, won't be able to sign his national letter of intent until Feb. 7, 2018. He has yet to play a down of varsity football.
Detmer said Dinkelmann committed to the Tigers on Friday after receiving a scholarship offer from LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron. Dinkelmann is the son of Detmer's sister, Dee. Dinkelman's father, Johan Dinkelmann, played at Cincinnati.
LSU made national headlines in 2012 when it offered a scholarship to Dylan Moses the summer before his eighth-grade year at Baton Rouge (La.) University High. Moses, a member of the class of 2017, committed to the Tigers early in his freshman season, but Dinkelmann's commitment is believed to be the earliest known pledge for LSU.
Well Tiger fans, do we have something to look forward to? I think so!
