Today Prentiss “Air” Noland announced on Twitter that he has received a scholarship offer the the University of Kentucky. It’s the first scholarship offer for the lengthy lefty from Atlanta.

A member of the class of 2024, the scholarship offer is not as obscenely early as you might think. In fact, the recruiting tactic has already worked for Kentucky. Steve Clinkscale offered Justin Rogers a scholarship when the big man was an eighth grader. Fast forward four years and the five-star recruit is a UK signee.
Kentucky has tried to make headway with quarterbacks by offering earlier than any other programs. It may be too early for some fans’ liking, but there’s no denying it — the kid throws darts.
