Fake Langford Twitter Dupes Gottfried

A Twitter account claiming to be Josh Langford began tweeting about the 6-foot-6 Alabama combo guard’s visit to NC State on Monday. 

The tweets were met by a flood of welcoming messages from NC State fans, hoping to land the five-star player from the class of 2016. 

The account was almost immediately denounced as a fake by Triangle-area media, but not before the faux Langford roped in a high-profile follower—NC State head coach Mark Gottfried.
