Doesn't this really say it all?
Lifetime vs. UM: L 9-1, C 8-0, T 5-0

Only a 3 star worthy fake job.....................starhanderouters are slippin'..............
too bad they didn't name the kid Manti
Manti Mirage sounds like a good name as an example of a true "Michigan Man".
What else is one to expect in this day and age. Wasn't there a saying to the effect that you should only believe half of what you read and a quarter of what you hear?

Rivals isn't the only one. Tweet say that 247 did it too.
Rivals actually ranked him. An account got made automatically with 247, they never ranked him like rivals.
247 didn't give him a ranking, but since Rivals did, it affects his 247 composite ranking.
It's a beautiful day in Columbus, Ohio... and TTUN still sucks.

Has Harbaugh pitched a tent at this fake recruit's house yet lol?
Yes, in his Khakis.
Don't listen to Freddy P. Soft
and he has his Pajama's......
Enjoying daily the back to back ttun beatdowns.
In plain sight...
Ignorance isn't bliss for the rest of us.
If he was a fake recruit offered by OSU instead of Bama, he’d lose a star.
You win with people.
And so forth...

Shows you how crazy recruiting is getting. You would think rivals would check their sources before putting a profile up. As hard as I am on Wiltfong, at least he checks with his sources before reporting something.
A big red flag for 247 should have been he went from an Amherst College D3 offer to offers from Alabama and Florida.
What this makes clear to me is that Saban and all the other big-time coaching staffs are the REAL evaluators of talent. The recruiting services for the most part just follow along.
Imagine how shitty you'd feel if you were one of the guys ranked below him
Bob Knight did this before. Made up Ivan Renko
I remember that. All about the $$$$$$$. Knight had a point then and it is obviously true to this day.

Sounds like this guy.

That is awesome. Never heard that before.
Holy shit, Knight was trolling before the internet was a thing. That's amazing.
So in other words, all these rankings systems are bullshit? Who would've thought that?

When this guy is arrested for molesting collies we can all breath a sigh of relief that we dodged yet another bullet.
UNC should sign him. Then he could go to fake classes.
He wouldn’t have to go.. They could just send the fake tutor to take the classes for him
He could date Manti Teo's fake girlfriend.
Torrence Gibson down votes the fake tutor idea.
The soldier is my son. The school I gone to didn’t teach much grammar.
They could just send the fake tutor to take the classes for him
but they do that for all of their students...
Lmfao what a fake recruiting site Rivals is becoming. Saban would never offer anyone under a 4*. Hilarious
Fuck eSECpn and fuck Mythigan.
So, is this fake news or real news about fake things? Maybe someone will make a deep fake about the fake recruit.

It is real news. It just shows the failure of the recruiting agencies to do their job.
Hey Mod edit: If he was an OSU target, would this article have stayed in it's original forum?
If the fake profile said he was from Ohio, people here would be clamoring for an offer to the kid anyways.
Dammit, beat me by 3min
Shandy is not beer
I personally think the Bucks should go after him. Seems like one of those under-the-radar 3-star types.
Could say he has a lot to prove.
Is he from Ohio?
Obviously not or KY would also have offered.
Somehow brings back this flashback from April 1, 1985
I remember that issue. Great job by SI.
It also brings to mind a case (that I can't find a citation for) from about 80-100 years ago when someone made up a college and its football team, and sent in the scores of its fake ever-more-dominating wins to one or more newspapers over the course of a season, even making up snippets about some of its best players, leading some in the media (and perhaps polls) to consider it one of the top teams in the country. I'll have to do some more research to see if I can find anything on it. You'd think the "experts" would have grown more savvy by now, but I guess not.
I'm too technically inept to insert a link while using my cell phone, but for an account, Google "Plainfield Teachers College football hoax." It wasn't as long ago as I thought - just 1941 - and the star player was Johnny Chung.
I shouldn't bring this up because I am not 100% sure how this went down but a recruit about 15 or more years ago was going to commit to us. How ever no one on the staff never new anything about him. Any old timers here recall that situation?
OUUUUUCH, that's gonna hurt. Also, hilarious.
What's even better is that the SEC bagmen gave some random kid some cash.
If Bama pulls Blake's scholly, I am sure he will be accepted at the South Harmon Institute of Technology, assuming he can navigate their tricky website application process.
Sounds like he may be Captain Tuttle's grandson.
