National Signing Day Mystery


This kid from Nevada called a news conference last week to announce he had chosen to play football with California instead of Oregon. The problem? Neither school had ever heard of him or recruited him.

So what's the story? No one knows. Either the kid lied and it got way out of hand. Or he was the victim of an incredible practical joke.

Edit: A little bit of an update today.

Edit: As a commenter pointed out, the news is now that the kid made the whole thing up.

wow....I feel so sorry for that kid...but at any point did the family think "why are we paying money to a recruiter?"
Could they have been that dumb?

Speaking of this signing day, how many hundreds of wise count high school athletes are being signed?

1:26 - I suggest the answer is about - none.

Hey 1:26 and 8:43, lots of Wise County kids will get scholarships and accepted by universities throughout Texas based on academics. And I bet there are quite a few that will sign for a variety of sports, band and other scholarships. Just because you are ignorant about it doesn't mean it isn't happening.

I just saw where this "recruit" admitted he made the whole thing up. Wow.

anon 9:11 You sir or mam are the ignorant one. This post is about athletic signings not band, academics etc. My post was sarcastic. I am very well aware of the fact that 99% of the scholarships that are awarded in the Wise County schools are academic, band, drama, honor society, choirs, debate, UIL, etc. Exactly the point of my sarcasm since most of the emphasis on extracurricular activities in these schools is athletics and yet they yield very little in terms of providing college education for these kids.

But, again the entire post is about athletics, so catch a clue and remove your nasty toe jammed foot from mouth.
