USC Gets Commitment from 13-Year-Old QB Phenom 78

Posted: February 6, 2010, 12:42 AM ; Updated: February 19, 2010, 6:22 PM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Southern California coach Lane Kiffin is apparently trying to get the inside track on recruiting a 13-year-old quarterback from Delaware.

The father of David Sills says Lane talked to the seventh-grader by phone Thursday and that the coach told the boy he'd like to have him come to USC. The boy's answer, according to his father, was: "Absolutely."

The father, David Sills IV, told The Associated Press on Friday that he also spoke to Kiffin and was shocked to have his son receive the nonbinding offer. The elder Sills says he is comfortable with his son's early commitment.

NCAA rules prohibit coaches and school officials from speaking publicly about unsigned prospects. Sills's first season at USC would be 2015.

hes not going to be a good football player

I understand that he is thinking ahead, but think about these questions. What if he changes his mind? Will USC remember him? Will he get injured in the next 5-6 years? (Probably)

this dude sucks

how do you know? huh?

why would they do this what if he turns out to be a big waste he's probably not going to be an award winner also i heard that wake did something like this in the 90's and it didnt work out at all

THAT KID IS WAY TO YOUNG

Two words: ATTENTION GRABBER.

13? really. College? USC ???????? I would rather go to somewhere like OREGON STATE and kick their butts when he is there

go OREGON STATE

Two Words: ATTENTION GRABBER.

I think this kid might be good, but nobody will see him in action any time soon.

ya know this just doesnt make any sense!!!!!lol!

the kid looks bratty

I don't know how good this kid is but if he is really that good than great for him. can't wait to see him get clabbered!!!

gggggggggggoooooooooooooooobbbbbbbbbbbbuuuuuuuuuuuuuucccccccccckkkkkkkeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeesssssssss[GO BUCKEYES!!!!!!!!]

ohio state is amazing they are going to win the national championship

that was hard to read and yeah why did you say that

what why did you say that???

It is stupid he is only 13 that is my age he can easily get hurt in the next 5 years or he might want to go somewere else!!

that is so dum hes only 13 and someone will crush him i don't won't him to get hurt .

My quarter back is way better im from oregon his name is AJ woodin

I think i might be better than him.

go MICHIGAN

Ok what if he stinks in highschool look how his dad is setting him up as this big hancho he might be good but we have a quarter back that is 14 years old and way better its on youtube ajwoodin

i don't think he'll do any thing the presusre of the media will hurt him plus i bet that there are other people who are just as good if not beter i hope i play him in college

UNDER STANDABLE BUT THE KID BETTER NOT CRY TO HIS COACH LIKE A BABBY WHEN HE GET'S SACKED REALLY,REALLY, REALLY HARD .

ITS NOT LIKE HE IS GOING TO USC WHEN HE IS 14 HE WILL GO WHEN HES 18
AND LANE KIFFIN IS A COACH FOR PEOPLE THAT WINE AND CRY
WA WA WA WA WA WA WA WA WA WA

he's going to get injured on the first tackle. just a hunch. :)

Just watch, that kid is going to get hurt and USC will pull out of their offer and he won't have anywhere to go.

The kid may be really good but there is no sense in deciding which college you are going to go to at age thirteen! Just wait, when he's in high school he's gonna wish he was going to some other college that he really wanted to go to. when he's older other QBs will catch up to him and he might not be the best anymore. Whatever, its stupid on USC's part

i agree im a qb and i bet im just as good i also think all the attention is going to presure him to do good and that wont help it will only hurt

What is USC doing? They don't even know what he is going to be like in high school. Wait until then before you talk to him about coming to USC.
