    I know a 6th grader in my community that is on my sons football team. He is a legacy Hawkeye and will be a big time athlete in football. His mom is a former d1 athlete as well. Just curious as to when coaches actually start looking at kids.

    I would think that they would want avoid recruiting him before 3PM, so they don't interfere with his school day.

    I would think they wouldn't even look at a kid until after puberty. Probably wouldn't start the recruiting process until the kid was a freshman (making phone calls, sending letters, etc)

    I think LSU just got a commit from a 7th grader. I think USC did the same thing a couple years ago.

    It depends on the position. QB is the first position to get looked at.
