5th-grade quarterback offered college scholarship

(USA TODAY) — College football programs extending scholarship offers to young prospects is nothing new (just ask Lane Kiffin). Still, the lengths which Hawaii appears to have taken that trend to the ultimate extreme by handing a scholarship offer to an elementary school.

As released on Twitter by the player himself (or perhaps a parent tweeting as the player), Hawaiian fifth-grade quarterback Titan Lacaden has a scholarship offer from his home state university and Hawaii head coach Nick Rolovich. The scholarship offer was confirmed by former Nevada football player Jake Lacaden, who is Titan’s older brother.

The concept of a fifth grader being offered a Division I football scholarship is obviously preposterous. As talented as Lacaden might be for the Hawaii All Black Crusaders, he’s either seven or eight years away from finishing his high school career … assuming he even has a high school career.
