D.J. Fluker is one of the top offensive tackles in the nation, and a likely first-round pick in this year’s NFL Draft. He also may have taken money while attending the University of Alabama.
On Tuesday morning Fluker tweeted indicating that he had accepted money while playing for the Crimson Tide, implicating unnamed agents. However, the tweet, which is below, was quickly deleted from his account.

Quickly after the deletion, Fluker’s actual agent, Deryk Gilmore, took to Twitter himself, saying that Fluker’s account was hacked. Gilmore said that Fluker is temporarily abandoning Twitter and will resume tweeting after the draft.
