IMO, it's 100% fake.
I don't see that.

Once again, calm down people. Quit fighting about if his twitter is real of fake; he is showing us genuine interest and that is all we need to know.

If it's not him, who care and if it is, then fantastic. Everyone calm down and let's enjoy the ride. Groce has us in position with highly rated guys.

His bio just reverted back to the original "undeclared..."

Too much drama for me...

Agreed. And if it does happen to be fake (which I'm thinking more and more that it's not), someone has put a tremendous amount of effort into making it look extremely real...

Guarantee that this sentence went thru Manti Teo's head at some point, and look how that turned out.

Back to actual recruiting info - Hill had 16 points in a win over Collinsville. He has also been selected to play for Team USA in the FLA vs USA Hardwood Classic. Congratulations to Malcolm.

I just asked him how he knew and he said because the real Leron just texted him and told LA to tell everyone. Carry on

If you look down a few tweets from that one, Leron Black's AAU coach wished LA a Happy Birthday tonight (2/19/13). Interesting connection.

Funny note: shortly after the Larry Austin tweet saying the account was fake, this is what Leron's (fake) account tweeted:

"catch y'all in a couple weeks..." in other words, "they caught me".

I think all of us can associate with Manti Te'o a little more closely now, except we caught it within a day...

as one of the first to question the legitimacy of the account last night, i take a little satisfaction in knowing i can spot bs from a distance... and i honestly don't think the real LB had any idea what was goign on, so even though some saw it as "creepy", i think me asking him on instagram about the showtime account was probably the first time he'd heard anything about it. I would want to know if someone was posing as me.

Hoooooooold up before you all start calling me creepy you don't even know the entire story. this fake account asked me to do him a favor and all I replied was to do me a favor and post a pic to prove him wrong because I knew at that point it was fake. I'm done with you all. And ps I'm glad you all remember my drunk tweet to XRM about "pickin the red headed step child school of Florida" with that said go speculate and assume more.

Being drunk is no excuse for being rude.
