New, 49 comments

Nephew of BYU legend Ty Detmer, 8th grader Zadock Dinkelmann out of Somerset, Texas, ended his recruitment very early when he committed to LSU today.

Don't worry moms and dads of the world, your little boy may be soon receiving scholarship offers in pee wee football with the way the recruiting landscape is headed.  In what is considered the youngest commitment in LSU history, quarterback Zadock Dinkelmann of Somerset, Texas, committed to LSU today.  The 6'3" 190 pound 8th grader (yes, you read that right) has solid bloodlines, coming from the Detmer family and already has a solid arm.  It's not the first time LSU has offered an 8th grader, giving one to current 2017 commit Dylan Moses before his 8th grade season, and with the way recruiting has become, likely won't be the last.

What LSU is Getting in...Wait, It's Way Too Early for That

8th Grade Highlights

I could offer a scouting report like we normally do in commitment articles, but since this kid has four more years of playing before he even arrives in Baton Rouge, I don't think any scouting now would remain.  He does already have a solid arm and with a Detmer coaching him the rest of the way through high school, he is in good hands to get even better.

With a commitment from Dinkelmann, LSU becomes the ONLY school to have at least one commitment through the 2018 class with Edwin Alexander and Stephen Sullivan for 2016, Dylan Moses for 2017 and now Dinkelmann in 2018.  The future definitely looks very bright, now we just got to wait awhile for some of these guys to get here.
