13 Year Old QB Commits to USC

I hesitate to post this, because it just seems too crazy to be true! And...if it is true, it just disgusts me.

There are reports all across the internet that 13-year old David Sills of Bear, Delaware has given his verbal commitment to Lane Kiffin after the new USC boss offered the 7th grader a scholarship. According to the LA Times, the offer came through Steve Clarkson, who privately tutors young quarterbacks.

Clarkson has worked with current USC quarterback Matt Barkley, who started 12 games as a freshman last season. Clarkson believes the 6-foot, 145-pound Sills could be better than Barkley or Jimmy Clausen.

Clarkson introduced Sills to Kiffin via the video below.

I know that Kiffin didn't overtly go after Sills, but I hope when this news reaches the appropriate people, someone will step-in and create a rule that prevents this from ever happening again.
