"First prize is a Cadillac. Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you get to meet Tito."
Someone Promised The #1 Football Recruit He Could Meet The King of Pop
That’s what top high school prospect Da’Shawn Hand told CBS Sports’ Bruce Feldman:
Q: What is the craziest thing that has happened to you since you’ve been named the nation’s No. 1 recruit?
Hand: Well, I ain’t gonna say any names, but one coach told me that since I’m the No. 1 player, I’m gonna get to meet Michael Jackson. I said, “Isn’t he already dead?” The coach goes, “Well, all right, you can meet Tito.” I was like, all right. OK, I’m done.
It was crazy, but it is what it is.
Hopefully for Hand’s sake, it wasn’t some kind of weird veiled threat.

At the Coaches meeting: "The funniest thing I offered a player? I seriously told this colored boy he could meet Michael Jackson if he signed with us! He figured it out though. What about you, Pelini, you got a story?"
Stay in state, son. Virgina Tech would love to have you! Can't promise Michael Jackson, but we can give you Michael Vick.
I would figure you can promise a guy named Da’Shawn pretty much anything and feel save he would be clueless
I gave his parents a cruise on the titanic but that didnt get him to sign with south central Louisiana state..... Go mud dogs
