13-Year-Old Commits To USC

I understand when soccer teams with the ability to sign infinite young players snatch up prospects at this age, but with a finite number of scholarships available, offering a scholarship to a 13-year old quarterback seems impossibly speculative. Regardless, Lane Kiffin's locked up 13-year-old quarterback David Sills, from that football hotbed of Bear, Delaware.

Bradford Returning To OU, Sanchez Going Pro

Many have been assuming for quite a while that he's gone. I know that I assumed that, anyway. Returning to OU will probably make him a better quarterback long-term, as he'll learn how to handle pressure a lot better than he has to date (OU will have almost an entirely new offensive line protecting him), but it will also possibly make his draft stock drop a bit, as with new blockers and new receiving targets his overall his numbers will likely suffer.

Thoughts? Smart move on his part?
