BOSTON (WBZ-AM) — Patriots are getting ready to visit the Chiefs in Kansas City Sunday night in the AFC Championship Game. This will be Tom Brady's eighth straight trip to the conference finals and 13th since getting drafted out of Michigan in 2000.

Now, there's a young, perhaps future-Wolverines quarterback who may have dreams of being just like Brady.

Isaiah Marshall.

He's a 13-year-old seventh grader, and also one of the youngest, if not the youngest player to ever receive a scholarship offer from the University of Michigan.

Marshall plays for MacArthur Academy in Southfield, Michigan. He received the offer from Jim Harbaugh after the Wolverines coach watched tape of him while searching for high school prospects in the area.

Isaiah's dad Brian told Fox 2 Detroit Harbaugh was impressed.

"He really enjoyed what he saw, he liked the things he was doing especially for his age, and he decided to give him a call," he said.

The whole Marshall family was shocked, but excited. Isaiah tweeted he feels blessed to make history, but his father—a former college football player at Northwestern—reminded him there's a long way from now until he's a senior in high school and much can change, so it's important to stay level-headed.
