Found April 08, 2012 on The Juicy Online:

Someone -- on Twitter -- is posing as Alabama running back Trent Richardson. According to the Akron Beacon Journal, the fake impostor has been using Twitter to stir up Cleveland Browns fans into believing that the real Trent Richardson wants the Browns to draft him in the upcoming NFL draft.

The account -- @trentrich03 -- has more than 16,000 followers, but again it's a fake account, according to Josh Maxson, an associate communications director for the University of Alabama athletic director.

Maxson -- in a email to the Akron Beacon Journal -- said, "It's not real. Trent doesn't have a Twitter and isn't planning on getting one".

The impostor has gotten the residents -- in Cleveland -- talking about the possibility of Trent playing for the Browns with the following tweets.

"I had a great time in Cleveland. Its in God's hands now".

"Love the brownie mascot. Bring back the elf".

"My favorite color Brown. no pun intended".
