Fake Twitter account appears to be attempting to scam Tennessee recruits out of money
The world of recruiting is a murky one, and there are a lot of shady people out there trying to take advantage of high school athletes.
On Tuesday, Kenyatta Watson, the director of player personnel and football operations at USA Academy, brought to light a new imposter on Twitter.
As you can see below, a fake account using a picture of former Tennessee director of player personnel Drew Hughes is trying to scam recruits out of $20:

Per FootballScoop.com, this is a good chance to remind recruits of the following 3 things:
- Legit college coaches do not run recruiting services on the side.
- Legit college coaches will not ask players for money.
- Legit scholarship offers do not come over Twitter.
Drew Hughes is now at South Carolina. Luke Hughes is not a real Tennessee coach, past or present. Be careful out there, recruits!
