Aaaand the draft stock plummets!!
Others are reporting it was a hoax played on him by others..
Going to withhold judgement.
He was exposed as a fraud on the field in the title game, this might be the greatest plunge in pre draft history?
(of course that AZ state linebacker drop was pretty epic, from first round to undrafted)
it's weird though because supposedly he met her at Stanford.
Crazy either way.
I can't believe a top of the market NFL draft prospect used the "Love" word with a woman he never bedded...or even met in person.
The guy had to have been in on it...and once it got out of hand, he didn't have the guts to man up and admit it. He even involved his parents in the scam.
What a sick bunch of individuals.
I agree, it's weird that he would feel such a connection with nothing physical going on. I realize he's mormon, but still.
What's weirder are the inconsistencies between his and his parents' stories. Supposedly he met her in Palo Alto. But once it came out that she never went to Stanford, it became a girl he just met online.
His family has mentioned how she came out to Hawaii to visit him.
The timeline of her death in relation to his grandma differs significantly in various reports.
He's just like any public figure who has ever been caught cheating or lying red-handed. He's trying to disavow any involvement. But in my mind there's no question he was in on it. Not surprising from a Notre Dame guy.
