D.J. Fluker, Alabama Lineman Who Will Be Drafted This Week, Tweeted That He Took Money in College, His Agent Claimed He Was Hacked [UPDATE: 'We Know Who Did This']


D.J. Fluker, who likely will be taken in the first round of the NFL draft Thursday, tweeted late Monday night that he took money from agents while in school. Fluker quickly deleted the Tweet but not before it was captured by several people – here, here, and here. Fluker’s agent Deryk Gilmore quickly responded that Fluker’s account had been hacked.

Update: According to AL.com, Deryk Gilmore believes they know who hacked Fluker’s Twitter account.

“We know who did this. This is totally fiction, but I’m waiting to get some proof. I’ve been on the phone with Twitter.”

“I mean, my company has an outstanding reputation. This kid, we didn’t even give him a guarantee to sign with us. We gave him nothing. My whole point is that for all the people who are out there saying the worst, let them believe the worst.”
