Nev. -- A prep football player who had claimed he was duped into believing he was recruited to play at Cal admitted Wednesday he made up the story.

Kevin Hart, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman for Fernley High School, offered a broad apology in a statement he issued through the Lyon County School District. Hart said he had wanted to play football at a Division I school "more than anything."

"When I realized that wasn't going to happen, I made up what I wanted to be reality," Hart said.

Lyon County sheriff's detectives had been unable to corroborate Hart's claims that he had been duped by a man he paid to help promote him to college football programs.

Lt. Rob Hall said Hart had not informed detectives of his confession, and they would continue to investigate to see if Hart had broken any laws, such as filing a false police report.

Hart first spoke with deputies Saturday, a day after he announced at a school assembly and a news conference that he would sign with Cal. He claimed to have chosen the Bears over Oregon.



...kinda sad!

Yeah it is sad, I heard about this when it first happened. I'm amazed that he was able to keep his friends, coaches and especially his parents in the dark. You would think his parents would be wondering why they hadn't personally been contacted but a representative from either school.

I thought it was funny a few days ago that they (player, etal) tried to spin it like it was a hoax all along. Please! The guy just needs to take his medicine and shut up.
