Nevada coach Brian Polian jokingly offers to start recruiting fourth graders

Earlier this week, Alabama offered an eighth grader, who already had an offer from LSU, a scholarship to play football in the fall of 2017.

But new Nevada head coach Brian Polian, who came from Texas A&M and knows that getting an early recruiting edge is key, is taking his recruiting a step further.

Polian jokingly tweeted this out Thursday afternoon as a response to the recruitment of linebacker/running back Dylan Moses of the University Middle Cubs. Moses isn’t exactly your typical eighth grader. He’s 6-foot-1, 215 pounds, which is why he’s drawing so much interest.

If Polian’s nephew Jack has similar measurements in fourth grade, Polian might be on to something.
