This story comes from Cameron Smith of Yahoo Sports and it certainly shows how the recruiting game continues to be about younger and younger prospects. The coaching staff sends out hundreds of letters to recruits but this particular one is to Jaden Jones, who is in fifth grade. That means he won’t even be going off to college until eight years from now, that’s right, he’s a class of 2021 recruit.
He could eventually become a top rated prospect but he’s 10 right now for crying out loud. Is this ridiculous or something coaches outside the power conferences need to do to keep pace in the recruiting game?
