The college football recruiting world truly is a bizarre place. Each year it seems like the kids these scholarships that universities are handing out to get younger and younger, but this story out of Memphis truly is one of a kind.
Chris Claybrooks is a senior defensive back for the Tigers out of Nashville, Tenn. and is also a father. It turns out his son plays football too, likely Pop Warner seeing as how he’s extremely young, but it’s safe to say he’s one hell of an athlete because according to Claybrooks the Tigers have offered his son a scholarship.
Truly blessed and proud of my son Christopher Claybrooks getting his first offer from the university of Memphis by @Coach_Norvell so thankful to be apart of this wonderful University and program???? #GTG pic.twitter.com/hnT9OhGFKs— allaroundclay (@ChrisClaybrooks) November 14, 2019
If you didn’t follow along there, Memphis offered the son of a current player a scholarship offer. Based on the picture Claybrooks shared, it doesn’t look like his son is over five or six-years-old. After all, Claybrooks only graduated from high school in 2014.
