4-Star Recruit Tried To Unveil His 'Top 5' Schools In Alphabetical Order, Failed, Heard About It

It's very common nowadays for big-time recruits to unveil the "top 5" or "top 10" schools that they are considering playing for on Twitter or Facebook. Most choose to either make it clear that the list is in no particular order or simply inform everyone that it'll be given in alphabetical order - as not to give any clues to which way they might be leaning. Well, Cameron Chambers, a four-star 2016 wide receiver recruit from Pennsylvania, tried to go with the latter method. There's just one problem...

No, it probably doesn't mean that he has Ohio State ahead of the other three Big Ten schools on the list. But yes, as you'd guess, fans on Twitter immediately started with the jokes. Most poked fun at him, but some took shots at Alabama and the SEC out of nowhere.

Chambers, who eventually realized his error and sent out another version, will make his decision this Friday. Hey, at least now he's prepared for the kind of backlash he's going to get.
