Offering scholarship to 13-year old ...

is smart.

 

At least according to Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated.

Perhaps Billy G. should have been a football coach instead :P

 

I don't know how all of this will play out (and in fact, it isn't clear to me that Kiffin actually did offer a scholarship), but it is fascinating, isn't it, to see how different the perspective can be.

 

There is some derision of this action on-line, but I'm pretty sure there won't be the outpouring of piousness that was prompted by Gillespie's recruitment of younger players. Gee whiz, at 13 what does any child know of the world? I would say that it is ridiculous for a barely-teenager to be making any kind of commitment. Having adults out recruiting pre-pubescents strikes me as totally outlandish.

 

Then again, maybe he isn't 13. Maybe he really is 16. And maybe he's a Chinese female gymnast. :P
