Lane Kiffin is Shady as Hell
After calling Urban Meyers a shady recruiter his second week at Tenessee, he is now recruiting 13 year olds like Evan Berry to play on the team. I like to refer this to sports pedaphillia: The illegal act of offering someone who isn’t in high school a scholarship to play at a university.
Of course, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Back in 2007, Ryan Boatright, an 8th grader, gave an oral commitment to Tim Floyd about playing for USC. Of course, we all know that Lane Kiffin was a tight end coach for USC before moving to the Raiders and eventually to UT.
I’d say this type of jailbait recruiting needs to stop. There is no way you will know if a player will still be playing let alone how he will develop. Similar to Brandon Jennings, who was a Sophomore at Oak Hill when he committed to play for the Trojans before jumping to Arizona and eventually Europe. Someone needs to get Chris Hanson from “To Catch a Predator” from these coaches preying on younger kids.
