Overheard on Twitter: When Stalking High School Recruits Goes Overboard

14

I was struck by a conversation I saw unfold on Twitter last night between Penn State blue chip recruit Christian Hackenberg (@chackenberg1) and about a half dozen or so Penn State fans.

It all started innocently enough:

 

 

 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH OH NO HACK DECOMMMITTED FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI! PENN STATE FOOTBALL IS DOOOOOOMED!

 

 

 

Yeah, no.

Hackenberg, of course, was referring not to the Miami Hurricanes, but Raisin’ Cane’s, a fastfood restaurant known for its chicken fingers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At what point does this whole game of adult fans tweeting at high school recruits become too much?

Share.
