At what age can an athlete really be offered a scholarship? Does the NCAA have any rules against this? Baylor University has only sent recruiting letters thus far to the talented 8th grader named Adrian Moore; no offers as of yet. Watch as he dunks a ball at the AAU Nationals. He has not been offered a scholarship yet. What I wonder, is if, Scott Drew is up to one of his tricks again?(Recruiting at all costs) We all know what he did in trying to recruit John Wall by trying to hire his AAU coach onto the Baylor staff. In addition, he mailed recruiting flyers that had an X on Bob Knight’s and Billy Gillespie’s face in order to sign a McDonald’s All-American. Drew’s tactics have caused conference coaches to question his ways of recruiting players. Many have considered him as using negative recruiting tactics in swaying player’s decisions to go to Baylor. Just this fall, Drew was able to get a verbal commit from Quincy Miller, the top player off the 18U USA team. Quincy Miller could very well be the number one player in the class of 2011 with his size and athleticism. Not too long ago USC offered a 13 year old a scholarship to play QB. I don’t necessarily disagree with sending Adrian Moore flyers ,but if Baylor were to offer a scholarship this early it would look like Scott Drew is up to one of his sneaky tactics of trying to get an early edge.
