Texas junior high QB, 14, commits to play for LSU

SAN ANTONIO (AP) A 14-year-old quarterback from South Texas 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 played 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 (http://bit.ly/1c1yhbz) he announced his choice 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 is at least the third junior high student from Texas to commit this school year.
