Rudolph “Blaze” Ingram has six more years until he graduates high school, but he already has his first college football scholarship offer.

Ingram, 11, was named the “Fastest Kid on the Planet” at just seven years old after running the 100-meter dash in 13.48 seconds. That broke the ESPN record for his age group, and Ingram was also clocked at 4.29 seconds in the 40-yard dash, according to a report by the Tallahassee Democrat.

On Monday, Florida A&M’s Director of Acquisitions called Ingram and offered him a football scholarship. Ingram announced the scholarship offer and posted a video of the phone call on his Twitter account.

“What I’m going to do is offer you at FAMU,” Rispress said on the call. “Like I said, you’ve got a long way to go. Keep paying attention to those grades, keep working the way you’re working, and we’ll get you out to the spring game.”

Ingram plays for the Bay Area Jaguars in Tampa, Fla. Ingram has 637,000 followers on Instagram, 7,600 followers on Facebook, and 2,600 followers on Twitter.

If Ingram continues to post absurd times on the track and find the end zone on the football field, he will have more scholarship offers than he can count before he graduates in the class of 2029.
