Lane Kiffin offers scholarship to Tee Martins 13-year-old son

Lane Kiffin offers scholarship to Tee Martins 13-year-old son

When it comes to handing out scholarships, Lane Kiffins motto clearly is that you can never be too early on a prospect.

The Florida Atlantic head coach has offered a scholarship to Kaden Martin, the 13-year-old son of former Tennessee quarterback, Tee Martin, according to a report.

FOX college football reporter Bruce Feldman reports the news and says Martin is a 7th-grader who is nearly 6-feet tall and 175 pounds. Kaden appears to have a big arm already, as Feldman says hes also been clocked in the 80s as a baseball pitcher.

This sort of move is nothing new for Kiffin, who seven years ago secured a commitment from then 13-year-old David Sills. Of course, Kiffin ended up fired from USC, leading to Sills decommitment. Sills never developed as a QB, bounced around to several colleges, and ended up playing wide receiver at West Virginia.

One difference with this case though is that Kiffin has a relationship with Martin, who was on his staff at USC. Martin remains a coach for the Trojans.
