Alabama Fan, Crimson Tide Commit Cameron Robinson Get In Twitter Spat Over Rooting For Louisiana Players

Most of the time, angry fans tweet nasty things at high school athletes who didn't wind up choosing to play for their favorite program. But yesterday, one Alabama supporter, who clearly has an issue with every single person in the state of Louisiana, went after one of his own program's commits. 

Alabama commit Cameron Robinson, a five-star offensive tackle from West Monroe, Louisiana, was excited that a player from his home state, wide receiver recruit Kirk Merritt, posted the highest SPARQ score at Nike's "The Opening" this week. This did not sit well with one Alabama fan, who told Robinson to stop rooting for "LA trash". Robinson, to his credit, actually stood up for himself - and his state.

It's not every day you see fans going after commits before they even get to suit up for the school. 

The Tide will have at least eight players on their 2014 roster who hail from the state of Louisiana. As far as we know, there is no school rule on who they'll be allowed to root for while attending Alabama.
