LSU - LSU made national headlines back in 2012 when Les Miles extended an offer to Dylan Moses the summer before his eighth grade year at Baton Rouge (La.) U-High. Miles and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron have found another youngster they feel is deserving of an offer in eighth grade quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann from Somerset (Texas).
Dinkelmann’s uncle, former BYU legend Ty Detmer, confirmed with 247Sports that Dinkelmann, who is part of the 2018 class, has committed to the Tigers.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Dinkelmann is the youngest known commitment for LSU since the age of the internet.
Sources on the LSU side say that Cameron has never seen an eighth grade quarterback with Dinkelmann’s physical tools at this stage of his development. Cameron also likes the fact that Dinkelmann plays for head coach Sonny Detmer.
Zadock Dinkelmann. What a name. Kind of have no choice but to be a superstar with a name like Zadock Dinkelmann. And with Detmer blood in him? Les Miles just locked that shit UP. Do they take Futures bets for 2018 yet?
I can’t even imagine how good life is for a fucking Zadock right now. 8th grader about to head into his freshman year of high school with a viral highlight video and an official scholarship offer from LSU in his front pocket. Bunch of pimply faced awkward insecure 15 year olds walking through the front doors hoping they can lose their virginity tag by the end of sophomore year, meanwhile Dinkelmann already impregnated half their class. King of the world. Just don’t get arrested or, you know, blow out an ACL or shoulder or fail to actually be good at playing football over the next 4 years and you’re set for life.
Did the Mad Hatter do it again or what?
