Kentucky offers 13-year-old offensive tackle


With many recruits on campus for UK’s Friday Nights Camp, news of scholarships being offered was to be expected. But not this one.

According to Dave Lackford of Rivals, Kentucky has offered Kiyaunta Goodwin a 13-year-old out of Louisville.

This isn’t just your everyday, run of the mill eighth grader though. This kid is 6-foot-6, 350 pounds and looks like he could plow through a brick wall.

You see all the time teams offering players at a ridiculously young age, but I’m all for this one.

My thoughts:

  1. What are they feeding this kid?
  2. I feel real bad for whatever 13-year-olds this kid is going up against.

    How big was Matt Elam at that age?

    Read where his doctor told him he could grow to 7’6″. That kid is a mountain.
