COLUMBIA, MS (WMC) -

An eighth grader in Mississippi is already making a huge impact on college coaches.

Jaheim Oatis hasn’t started eighth grade yet, but already stands 6-4 and weighs 286 lbs.

Oatis, from Columbia, Mississippi, is already a three-sport athlete who towers over his basketball teammates and throws a self-reported 85 miles per hour fastball, but football coaches are taking the most notice.

Oatis said he’s received offers from Ole Miss, Alabama, and Mississippi State—the first three schools he’s visited.

Oh, and his 40-yard dash time isn’t bad, either.

The recruiting trail truly never stops.
