Freshman D.J. Russell commits to Miami before beginning high school
 
The day D.J. Russell captured the attention of Chris Caputo, the Miami assistant wasn’t even there to recruit him.

Caputo and coaches from eight other top programs attended practice at Arlington Country Day High School in Jacksonville last April to watch highly touted Class of 2014 guard Bradone Francis. But Russell did so well guarding a player three years older than him that Caputo told AAU coach Emory Walton that Miami intended to offer the 6-foot-6 eighth grader a scholarship.

“When Emory told me, I was like, ‘Are you serious?’” D.J.’s father Dwayne Russell said. “I didn’t believe it but he kept telling me they offered.”

I always find it silly when players commit to colleges before HS or early on in HS, they almost never honor those commitments and end up attneding better programs anyhow.
