Social media has certainly made college football recruiting crazier, if not a bit more fun. Ole Miss fans were likely celebrating just a few minutes ago, when it appeared that they had unexpectedly landed a huge five-star commitment at wide receiver in Damarkus Lodge.
Various recruiting writers tweeted out the commitment, which seemed to come out of nowhere. On 247Sports’ “crystal ball”, out of 39 predictions, not one person believed Lodge was Ole Miss bound. Most have him going to Texas A&M, Baylor, or LSU. It appears that, today at least, the crystal ball was on to something, because Lodge was quick to delete his ‘rebel’ tweet and set the record straight.
I DID NOT COMMIT TO OLE MISS !

Sorry, Ole Miss fans. Lodge was probably just listening to some Bowie or something, nothing to see here.
