Alabama, Ole Miss and Mississippi State have offered scholarships to 6'4", 286-pound eighth-grader Jaheim Oatis of Columbia, Miss., he announced on Twitter over the weekend.

“REMEMBER THE NAME JAHEIM OATIS!!!!” he wrote in a tweet.

Oatis once shared a video of himself running a 4.7 seconds for the 40-yard dash at the Ole Miss football facilities.

Oatis also plays baseball and basketball.

Apparently, it's not to early to start recruiting kids before high school as Lane Kiffin has reportedly recruited three students including a sixth grader.
