Crazy has no boundaries

I’m not sure how I feel about this today. A 14-year old commiting to a college football team? Is this the road we’re going down now? Washington Huskies fans weigh in below.

Onto the news…

First reported by the Seattle Times Bob Condotta via twitter

We’ve learned that a PR firm that represents So Cal QB coach Steve Clarkson who has coached Nick Montana, and Matt Barkley among others sent an email saying UW has gotten a commitment from Tate Martell, a 14-year-old San Diego QB.

He is now the youngest student to commit to a Division 1 school since David Sills committed to USC in 2010.

Here’s the email.

“8th grade quarterback and San Diego native Tate Martell has just made a verbal commitment to the University of Washington. Discovered by renowned quarterback coach Steve Clarkson, Martell was a part of the Throwback Football League as a member of the Mira Mesa Chargers, and was named MVP of the 2012 season. He is the youngest student to commit to a Division 1 school since Clarkson’s discovery David Sills committed to USC in 2010.”

Bob Condotta has more on his blog.

This is a little ridiculous isn’t it UW fans? I have no clue how this will work out.
