Ever wonder if top recruits check out the message boards to see who is talking about them? Well, we know that at least one top high school football player – four-star dual-threat quarterback Kai Locksley – is checking out what fans are saying online. Locksley posted a photo of the Auburn 247 board, which includes a thread dedicated to a photo taken of him and his mom. Locksley said that the post was “creepy”.

Locksley is supposedly a lean towards Maryland, but he’s also considering Auburn, Virginia Tech, Texas, Oregon and Florida State.
To be clear – it’s not a surprise that fans – especially those in the SEC – are interested in every facet of potential recruits’ lives. Any time it looks like a player is leaning a certain way, it’s going to be news. But as we’re seeing here, they can see what you’re writing about them too.
