College basketball program recruiting 5th-grader Published: November 1, 2013

Jaden Jones is in fifth grade. The native Texan enjoys school, playing with his friends and really loves playing basketball. He watches cartoons and receives recruiting letters from Division I programs, according to Yahoo Sports.

But, that last detail is not an exaggeration; Jaden Jones is literally receiving actual, hand-written recruiting letters from Division I basketball programs. The first to hit up the 10 year old was George Mason, which sent along the letter you see at the right.

It goes without saying that this is an absolute abomination. The recruiting wars have gotten younger and younger, but sending official letters to 10 year olds is a joke. Or at least it should be a joke. Unfortunately, George Mason appears to be all too serious, Yahoo Sports reports.
