Hundreds of ways to flirt with trouble

There are some issues NCAA compliance officers tend to take more

seriously than others, and highly touted teenage football recruits

flaunting wads of cash is one of them.

In January, it was five-star Ole Miss recruit Laquon Treadwell

who

target="_blank">garnered some unwanted attention when he

posted a photo of several hundred-dollar bills to his Instagram

account.

Now Treadwell has company in the Stop Taking Pictures of Big

Money Club in KD Cannon, a four-star wide receiver out of Texas

who, earlier this week,

target="_blank">tweeted a picture that’s assumed to be him

with a hefty stack of benjamins in his lap:

Now, who knows whose money that is. It’s unlikely the

photo leads to any trouble.

But college football is a big business, and teams have been

known to skirt the rules in the name of competition, so it’s

better not to make the implication that someone may have.

No one recruiting Cannon wants to have the NCAA sniffing around

because a kid they’re after seemingly has struck it rich.

So a word to the wise, KD, if you want those scholarship offers

to keep coming in: If you’re going to show off your bank,

don’t do it online.
