When Is Recruiting Too Early

This Delaware seventh grader is already being touted as the next Jimmy Clausen and Matt Barkley. He is in seventh grade but has already worked out with both of them!

A local coach in Delaware says, ""He looked like a junior Peyton Manning. That kid is unbelievable.' Even the referees were amazed. The other team sort of gravitated to him like a rock star."

Last Thursday, his Red Lion Christian Academy Middle School defeated West Hills Chaminade Junior High, 39-6. Sills completed 14-of-27 passes for 280 yards and three touchdowns. Two other passes were dropped in the end zone.

Is this too early to be looking at and projecting a potential top recruit?

It's never too early to project what he could end up being, especially if you compare his stats at his age to that of Clausen and Barkley, but it's way to early to get excited about him becoming your collegiate quarterback.
