Cruz Culpepper of the legendary Culpepper family, just ran 4:11 as a Sophomore at the Texas Relays. Will he be another stud high schooler?

Is he related to Alan?
He's Alan and Shayne's son.
I can't believe he's 16.
Anyone else really excited about this?
4:11 will be top what in the country for sophs? Cruz has great genes and born at altitude. I wonder if we ever had any April fools thing up about him being the future.
So 4:13+ for a mile.
I wouldn't get too excited. Just like Jakob, he's being trained like a pro at only 16 years old. So it just means that he's realising his peak potential earlier - and that there won't be a big step-up when he gets to college or pro. Doesn't mean he's going to be the next Bekele.
