Just not convinced that offering this early does anything but mess with a kid's head and (in some cases) his development as a player. I vaguely remember a prospect from somewhere in Iowa and one from Topeka who were "can't miss" as eighth graders who failed to develop into college stars. Does anyone care to research how many eighth grade commits actually sign with the school which originally offers them.

I can remember it being a big deal back in the 80's when Bobby Knight offered Indiana boy Damon Bailey as an 8th grader.  He went on to be a good but not great college athlete.
