USC Football Lures Young Teenage Boy to Campus

February 5, 2010

After doling out signing bonuses to his newest crop of five-star recruits this week, USC Head Coach Lane Kiffin celebrated his impressive high school haul by offering an invitation to a 13-year-old boy to come “play ball” in Trojan Town.

For the second time in two years, Kiffin offered a football scholarship to a Bar Mitzvah-aged recruit (that’s 13 years old for those of you who don’t belong to the Beth Tzedek fantasy football league), in order to build for the future and shore up his 2015 recruiting class.

David Sills, from a possibly fictional state called Delaware, has given the Trojans a verbal commitment that after he reaches puberty and passes freshman algebra he will suit up for USC in six years.

According to scouts, the seventh grade prospect has “an unmatched skill-set” for a kid his age and might mature into one of the best prospects in America. Or, completely hit a wall and becoming a monumental bust. The possibilities are endless!
