DJ Fluker was in a bit of a crapstorm after a tweet sent from his account Monday night said he accepted money while in college. Fluker’s agent was predictably fuming over the tweet, and it didn’t take him long to address the matter by calling the tweet a hack job. To all followers of @djfluker76 his account has been hacked. We will rue activate his account after the draft. — Deryk Gilmore (@DerykGilmore) April 23, 2013 To all followers of @djfluker76 his account has been hacked. We will re-activate his account soon. Thank you for your support. — Deryk Gilmore (@DerykGilmore) April 23, 2013 Gilmore, who works for Priority Sports and Entertainment, told AL.com that they know who hacked Fluker. “We know who did this,” Gilmore told Al.com. “This is totally fiction, but I’m waiting to get some proof. I’ve been on the phone with Twitter.” Gilmore not only wanted to protect his client, who is expected to be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft, but also himself; it’s against the rules for agents to give money to college athletes. Fluker was a part of three national championship teams at Alabama. He was a starter at right tackle for the Crimson Tide’s last two national title teams. He can also play guard and would probably dominate at that position in the NFL. So, the big question is: Do you believe Fluker’s agent? Was DJ really hacked? Let us know in the comments. We think it’s a 50-50 possibility.
