This is a joke, right? Does Kiffin not understand that he doesn't need to pull the same antics like he did at Tennessee (offering scholarship to Eric Berry's 14 year old little brother)? This is crazy; Kiffin is the biggest media whore of all time. USC doesn't need NCAA investigations to bring them down; Kiffin is going to do it all by himself.
USC gets commitment from 13 year old
Only a matter of time.
+1 for the Chris Hansen reference!

Nah, I was having problems loading the page so I accidentally submitted it twice. Is there a way to delete the post? I guess I could always just edit it to something else...
No way to eliminate a double post. Your idiocy will be documented for the rest of your MGoLife. You might as well go hide under a rock somewhere to hide from the shame that people will shower on you from now on.
*this comment comes from someone who double posted no less than an hour ago*
of double-posts is the Mgoblog national art genre.
Anyone ever see the episode of TCAP with the pedo who's wearing the Ohio State hat? It's priceless.
Insert Lane Kiffin for Lloyd Christmas:
Haha. You beat me to it.. no joke. Here's the ESPN link.
Kiffin wont be there by the time the kid graduates from HS. Where are his parents in all of this?
Kiffin sure likes them young
this kid is going to have the easiest high school dating path ever.
JEALOUSY RAGE REQUIRES ALL CAPITALSSSSSS
First thing I thought of was, how does this kid not grow up to be an asshole? He is going to go through all of HS as the MAN. He stands no chance to not be a cocky scumbag. And yes...he will get laid more than Wilt
Yeah, but Forcier had essentially the same childhood, and he doesn't seem like an ass.
Tate had a scholarship offer from one of the top football programs in the country at 13? I don't think so.
the best part of all this is trying to imagine the conversation when Kiffin told the
mistresses hostesses at USC that they will have to suck off a teenie-bopper
Perfect, just in time for those sanctions to be lifted. Good timing Lane, you douchebag.
After spending two whole minutes PSing Kiffin's smirking face over the ped bear I realized I am not able to upload. damn.
I can't believe that the NCAA allows this to happen. I wonder if he sent any of the song girls to help recruit this kid. I can see his thought bubble as one of them kisses him on the cheek... "OMGBEWBZ!!1 WERE DO I SIGN?"
quite common for basketball. NCAA didn't do anything about it so why should they start for football. If they're going to do it, they have to do it for basketball as well.
players like Hermann Johnson was offered almost the moment that he was born(he was the biggest baby born at 15 lbs.) when LSU coaches came by to offer him a schollie or Chris Leak committing to Wake Forest when he was in 7th/8th grade.
Jack Johnson was offered and committed to Michigan at 14.
"It was very cool [to talk to Kiffin] but my heart was beating so fast, and I was scared. But after it was over, I was so excited and pumped."
reminds me of "Showgirls." I was a student when that came out and went to see it opening weekend. The theater was actually sold out so I wasn't the only one duped into seeing a God awful movie just for the chance to see Jessie Spano sans clothing.
Slip her some rufies next time, might have better luck
So are offers like this revocable? Like, suppose the kid never gets a growth spurt or ends up being simply not a good player: can USC revoke the offer without any consequences?
By the time the kid gets on campus Kiffin will have moved on to at least two more dream jobs
The latter of the two being mop up duty in his wing of the prison.
If there's any justice, anyway.
They can withdraw the offer, it's just a verbal commitment. Nothing is finalized until he signs a letter of intent.
When is the NCAA going to install early signing period? What if this kid ends up being so good that Zombie Urban Meyer comes back from the grave in four years and gets him to switch to the Gators. If he could sign a pre-pubescent LOI, USC could keep the snake oil away.
i love it, reppin my homestate. DELAWARE WHAT UP
This kids lucky. His first car is gonna be an Escalade provided by the USC Athletic Department.
Joe McKnight will be his driver's ed instructor.
I remember this kid coming up 6 months ago in the media. His personal coach is the same guy who tutored Clausen and Leinhert.
I think that same coach said that this kid right now is better than Clausen or Barkley.
kind of athlete is someone to build your team around. Especially in your first year.
Espn links his "highlight" video
looks like his longest throw is 20 yards...pretty damn impressive IMO
"kiffin is a pedophile"
Couldn't have said it better myself.
My 7th grade twins play youth football and we played a team from Grand Blanc this year (age limit of 13). They ran the spread and the QB could throw the ball 40 yards plus and had good wheels. Maybe we need to get a recruiter to check him out since we already have an offer out to another GB kid, Justice Hayes.
I heard USC is kicking Reggie Bush's family out of the house they bought them and moving this kid and family into it
What a scumbag.
If I was the AD at USC, I would sit Lane down and politely remind him that we don't need him adding anything else to our media shit storm.
Kiffin isn't an idiot. He just doesn't have the same set of ethics I do. He knows how important it is to be the first school to offer a recruit, the first one to "notice." For the next while now, that boy is going to think of himself as a USC quarterback, and when and if it comes down to choosing between USC and another school in four or five years, I'll bet USC has the edge.
I wouldn't offer him, though. It's important for this kid's education off the football field that he thinks for another couple of years that he actually has to work academically to get into college.
Congratulations Lane, you're a real winner. He's doing his absolute best to make college football recruiting as slimy as basketball recruiting.
This is really bad.
How the hell did RR miss this one? We're doomed!
Kid's mom is definitely a "Hostess"
People appreciate it when an older guy loves kids. The problems come when they get specific.
"I love kids!" Awesome.
"I love 13 year olds." Creepy.
(Credit to Demetri Martin... I think.)
...maybe Kiffen told him that USC would be off probation by 2015. Hell of a recruiting tool.
