Is There A Point To 8th-Grade Offers?

Everyone remembers the Baby Quarterback (David Sills), who offered at a tender age and then committed to USC. He was subsequently dropped by Steve Sarkisian. But what about Nathan Tilford? He was the wide receiver-turned-tailback who USC offered in the eighth grade back in 2013. Three weeks ago, he signed with Arizona. So what was the point of that eighth-grade offer again?

      Agree…. and what about the next RB coach? Bring in McNair and rub it in the NCAA’s face!

    Tilford is a great get for Arizona. I had hoped SC signed him.

    Have to agree with Wolf on this one. It’s difficult to see anybody who benefits from publicity stunts like this.

    My guess is it’s a publicly stunt. Kind of like priming the pump. I doubt anyone expects the kid to commit in four years.
