Remember the early 2000s Ashton Kutcher MTV snow Punk’d? Well, this could have made for a solid, if hamhanded, episode.
CeCe Jefferson is one of the nation’s top defensive end recruits, a stud, consensus five star prospect who ranks in the top-10 overall recruits on most boards. He holds a scholarship offer from nearly every major program in the country, but many feel the Baker County star is most likely headed to an in-state power. Most eyes have consistently been on Florida.
That’s what sent shockwaves through fans across the country on Monday afternoon, when Jefferson’s Twitter account briefly offered up this since-deleted message:
“Just commit ed to Fsu, thank you lord for the opportunity. #GoNoles”
Florida State? Just like that? how could he?
The answer, of course, is that he didn’t. It was Jefferson’s teammates, who had briefly abducted his phone and hoped on his Twitter app to issue up the statement, much to his horror.
Here’s how Jefferson followed his faux commitment, moments later.
Seems legit, as does the excuse. Heck, Jefferson even admitted he’d do the same to his best friends if he had the chance, at least according to his retweet of this comment sent to him:
For now, Jefferson’s future remains up int eh air. Which is probably more than we can say about his phone. Something tells us that’s now on lockdown for the foreseeable future.
