A Fake ESPN Account Is Fooling The College Basketball World

An ESPN sign hanging that's very old

Don't fall for this.

According to a Twitter account appearing to belong to ESPN college basketball insider Jeff Goodman, the following big news has happened today:

  • Kentucky's Sacha Killeya-Jones is transferring to Western Kentucky
  • Duke's Grayson Allen is returning for his senior year
  • Michigan State's Miles Bridges is leaving for the NBA
  • North Carolina's Justin Jackson is returning for his senior year
  • 5-star small forward Kevin Knox has committed to Missouri

The Twitter account is fake, though.

It's fooled a bunch of people, even prompting Bleacher Report to alert one of his tweets, as it's a pretty well-done fake account.

So be aware, college basketball fans, if you see a tweet from someone appearing to be ESPN's Jeff Goodman, double-check the account.

The fake one has three "Os" in its Twitter handle. The real one only has two.
