Ed-S: Mods leave this please as a warning for those who come across this kid and would like to gauge his credibility. OP thank you for bringing it to our attention. Young aspiring bloggers: this is how you to wreck your journalism career before you're 15:

What are you doing man? This is not how you get credibility.

fyi, this is the guy who posted the jersey thread three below this one.

This is that high school kid who claims a Hoke recruiter connects him with recruits to interview. Looks like he's just crowdsourcing every iffy rumor out there and trying to break something no one else with a shred of credibility will. You can drop as many "100%"'s as you want, doesn't make it true, or credible.

Five fakes out of five.

Also, how many times does he have to mention he's 14, like we're supposed to cut him some slack?

We have plenty of examples here in the Detroit market alone of people who have made a lot of money talking out of their ass. We can use Valenti, Sharp, Rosenberg as just a few of the examples.

He's a 14 year old kid. I don't think we have to embarass him. He's not the only one getting a little excited about the possibility of Harbaugh coming here. I highly doubt they will look at his tweets when he was 14 and say he's not getting the job.

I definitely don't think he should be ridiculed, but an appropriate 'call out' for half-truths, reposted info, and just BS will be good for his future blogging career. We have enough blowhards, we could use a few more good bloggers

Althought to be fair, writing is a skill that takes years and years to develop. 

But yeah, these aspiring sports wrtiers need to pay attention in class, read, and study how actual reporters and writers do their jobs if they want to be the next Rob Parker.

However, to be good at it, they'll have to do more than that.

To be fair, I'm a bit impressed with his loyalty since we've been pretty crappy for most of his life, but he should post a disclaimer about his age/sources.  Maybe we can get his parents to ground him for passing on bad info?

Mmmm Hmmm

Eeeeh, I get the whole "try him as an adult" thought because of his insistence coupled with hiding behind the "I'm 14" when criticized. Still, the best course of action seems to be ignoring him. I think the better lesson is "if you give bad information, nobody listens" rather than "if you give act like a troll, people listen and respond." The first lesson creates a more responsible adult; the second creates Drew Sharp.

just read the edge of the internet chat session from last night that got all these insiders excited.  that source has no credibility.  cross referenced with a twitter handle he gave out and seems just another run of the mill fan....too much BS out there right now
