Well, it appears, as it did from the very beginning, that Kevin Hart is a liar.
A prep football player who had claimed he was duped into believing he was recruited to play at a Pac-10 school admitted Wednesday he made up the story.
Kevin Hart, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman for Fernley High School, offered a broad apology in a statement he issued through the Lyon County School District. Hart said he had wanted to play football at a Division I school “more than anything.”
“When I realized that wasn’t going to happen, I made up what I wanted to be reality. I am sorry for disappointing and embarrassing my family, coaches, Fernley High School, the involved universities and reporters covering the story,” Hart said.
You’ll remember when first we stumbled upon this (allegedly) unfortunate kid.
I think itâ€™s safe to say thereâ€™s a place reserved at the devilâ€™s dinner table for the truly detestable person/people behind this prank. Stay tunedâ€¦
That was me and I trust you know that was written with tongue firmly planted in cheek. The “Stay tuned…” suggestedÂ how I and many others called shenanigans. There is no way — NO WAY — a kid goes through the recruiting process without visiting a campus he might one day attend or actually meeting the head coach at that college. Some of you suggested the same and suspected something strange.
