It's great to have money.
The following photo is making its way around college football Twitter (specifically Mississippi State Twitter, but other Twitter neigborhoods too). It's allegedly a photo tweeted by five-star Ole Miss commit Laquon Treadwell of Illinois, who was in Oxford along with No. 1 recruit Robert Nkemdiche and others over the weekend.
So Treadwell put up pictures of cash on Instagram then quickly deleted them. Wonder why?via.me/-98vmri2— Stephen T (@BeastManSteve) January 29, 2013
SMOKING GUN! HUGH FREEZE IS CHEATING! Finally, we know where that top-10 recruiting class is coming from!
Except it's just a picture of a young man holding money. If it was given to him by Ole Miss, then great. He's worth that and then some, whether the NCAA agrees or not. If it wasn't, then great. We'll assume he earned it some other way until proven otherwise.
It's not competitively smart for recruits to broadcast photos like this, but if anyone has any motives for expressing concern other than trying to get a rival in trouble (a vital pastime) for something that might or might not have happened, please keep them quiet.
