    Florida State offers an 8th grader

    Heard this today, forgot what school he attends, but Florida State has offered a 5th grader for both basketball and football. Guys on the radio said that this kid is a gifted athlete and that if he doesn't get top college offers shortly, they're maybe too late. They also went on to say that this kid has already played high school ball against varsity players.

    6'6 / 6'7 one of the two. I think they said he attends a school down in Florida..

    Both offers are scholarship offers from what they said.

    I don't see anything on Google or Twitter to support this. Is it really true? Link?

    That's what was said on the radio this afternoon. I'll see what I can find about it. It may have been a middle schooler.

    If a mod could change 5th to 8th in the thread title that would be great.

    Big difference in 5th and 8th. I remember when Billy Gillispie offered an 8th grader once...and he ended up at Sonoma State.

    It is but to be offered both football and basketball by a top university like Florida State...It's pretty impressive. Hope Cal jumps on this kid...

    There are a ton of kids now that are being offered this early. I could name a freshman right now who had offers from UK and UL in the 8th grade (Jairus Brents is his name).

    Doesn't say anything about his age.
    I mean, is he a 15yr old 8th grader?
