    Just curious, think these were 2022 or 2021 kids right? Any of them D1 targets today?

    While I didn't know there was such a show, there are a couple of 10-11 yr olds in Houston, I'd sign today.

    One is Jonathan Joseph's son

    One is Emanuel Yancy, whose brother starts for Florida at WR

    Years ago, the HISD assistant AD called me about a nine year old - biggest kid in his grade, fast, straight A student. Single mom living in inner city Houston. Someone paid deposit, first month's rent, and moving expenses to move his mother and him to West Houston, where he starred, was a blue chip, and became the first true freshman to start in the DL for OU.

    Occasionally, you see a youngster that has "it" and you know he will be a star.

    There are also those with the ability (national junior Olympic sprint and long jump champion), but he had no academic ability. We spent a lot of money on tutoring, but he just couldn't get it.
