(NBC) A 14-year-old south Texas boy from a well-known quarterback lineage has committed to play football at LSU.
Eighth-grader Zadock Dinkelmann verbally committed to the Tigers last 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.
He committed three days after LSU offered him a scholarship and six months before he can compete in high school.
