National Signing Day was Tuesday, and there might not have been a bigger signing than Quarterback David Sills, from Bear County, Delaware, who committed to the Trojans. Sills, 13, is a 7th grader at Red Lion Christian Academy.
That was not a typo, David Sills really is a 13 year-old 7th grader.
If you didn’t think Lane Kiffin was a dirt-bag after he bailed on Tennessee, maybe this will change your mind. The Trojans really did offer Sills a scholarship, and Sills really did make a verbal commitment to play there.
I’m no talent scout, but how in the hell can you evaluate a quarterback’s talent when he’s only 13?! What if the kid stops growing, is USC going to honor their commitment then? What if the kid sucks in high school? What if he falls in love with some 8th grader and she convinces him to quit football to join the drama club?
This could be the sign of the Apocalypse when major schools like USC are offering scholarships to 13 year-old, pre-pubescent football players. Unbelievable. The kid hasn’t even got his first pimple yet and he’s already a quarterback at USC!
Does anybody remember Todd Marinovich?
