A recruit’s nephew threw a tantrum when he chose UCLA over Ohio State at the Army All-American game

We’re right there with you, little man.

Let’s start off on the right foot: if you’re not a college football recruiting hardcore, high school all-star games can be a bit of a drab affair.

Let’s try and get through the CliffNotes quickly, shall we?

“Did the four-star pick Ohio State?” Nope.

“What about the five-star corner?” Not him either.

“Well what about the *other* five-star corner?” Good news! He totally did.

An Ohio State quarterback commit also made one dandy of a play.

But perhaps the best part of the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl came during one of those recruiting misses.

Following an extremely dramatic recruitment, four-star corner Darnay Holmes chose UCLA in a bit of a surprise over USC and Ohio State. Evidently his too-cute-for-words nephew felt strongly otherwise:

Ohio State punter Drue Chrisman knows the score:

While Holmes will have to hone his craft on the west coast, maybe this story can have a happy ending when his nephew grabs a scarlet and grab cap more than a decade from now at a future Army All-American game.

If nothing else, he’ll now be forever immortalized in internet lore.
