14-year-old junior high QB commits to play for LSU

Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A 14-year-old South Texas boy from a well-known quarterback lineage has committed to play football at LSU. Eighth-grader Zadock Dinkelmann orally committed to the Tigers on Friday. He's the nephew of Ty and Koy Detmer.

Ty Detmer won the 1990 Heisman Trophy at BYU and Koy Detmer was an All-Big 12 player at Colorado.

Both had long careers in the NFL. The 6-foot-4 Dinkelmann plays for a junior high in Somerset, southwest of San Antonio. The San Antonio Express-News reports he committed three days after LSU offered him a scholarship and six months before he can compete in high school.

The teen's nonbinding declaration continues a trend of adolescents committing to play in college. He's the third known junior high student from Texas to commit this school year.
