The Washington Huskies have a quarterback prodigy growing right in their own back yard and Washington State would be eager to get their hands on him, I imagine, in 6 years. It’s likely they won’t be the only schools wanting to snag Max Nall, a seventh grader out of Seattle. His age put’s him in the class of 2018, but he turns heads when you watch him because he plays far beyond his years.
Though there is no confirmation available to support this erroneous report of a possible scholarship offer (eventually I’m sure), it is apparently never too early to start scouting legitimate talent. I’m sure the Cougars have been sent this tape, because Nall is being mentored by Washington State’s legendary quarterback Jack Thompson, which also starts to explain why he’s so much better than most at his age.
For clarification I’m not altogether sure when you can offer a kid. I’m inclined to say not before he hits high school status though.
Anyway, take a look at Nall’s highlight tape (which speaks for itself) and tell me he doesn’t look like a high school legend.
