(Non) college recruit nearly fooled everyone with fake letter of intent

A Nevada High football player, 6-foot-5, 290-pound Kevin Hart, nearly fooled everyone in his hometown of Fernley, NV -- population 19,700 -- on National Signing Day Wednesday.

Like many top recruits across the country, Hart had a media conference to announce his college choice. He sat at a table with a California baseball cap and one from Oregon. He put on the Cal hat, seemingly announcing he had chosen to accept a scholarship there, and he even signed a bogus letter-of-intent in front of friends, family and media, hoping to see the first major college signee ever from Fernley.

As the day wore on, Hart's rouse was uncovered. Turns out Cal and Oregon had never heard of him.
