Alabama and Auburn coaches supposedly staged a dance-off in an attempt to woo five-star linebacker Rashaan Evans at his grandfather’s birthday party. The Crimson Tide assistants must’ve made a strong impression, because Evans has picked Alabama.
The only issue is that, for one reason or another, the Tigers were so certain that they’d landed the recruit that they put up a live web page for him:
Auburn posting Evans’ bio right before he picks Alabama figures to be your Signing Day moment of 2014. Though the day’s young.

There’s probably a very reasonable explanation for the error — the page has since been taken down — but it’s pretty amusing for neutral observers.
