Markeith Ambles Boldly Inaugurates a New Era in Recruiting, Gets Shot Down Over Twitter

High school football recruit Markeith Ambles, one of the nation's top-rated wide receivers, is projected to be a playmaker at the next level. But he might want to step up his game with the ladies. This won't cut it:

"@AnimalHeather" is Heather Harrington, a Knoxville radio host. She responded with a mix of incredulity and disgust when asked about the possibility of a rendezvous.

And that more or less wraps up this story from the angle of potential misconduct, because Ambles isn't doing anything wrong by expressing a desire to go "bone to bone" with anyone, and Harrington didn't do anything. But I'm excited about what this means for the future. You see, recruiting is clearly going to be clean now!

Every recruit will announce possible violations on Twitter, and everything's going to have to get the madding crowd's approval! Ambles isn't a cocky high school kid looking for a little love in one of the wrong places; he's a pioneer who is ushering in a new day where all the dirt of recruiting is done in the open!

(Actually, this changes nothing, except that we now have another medium in which we can see recruits having fun with being minor lords of the earth. Exclamation points are for sarcasm!)
