A.J. Francis is a defensive lineman at Maryland and he was dubbed by DC Sports Bog the best tweeting athlete in the DC-area. One of his tweets this weekend apparently caught the eye of the school’s compliance director, as the Bog pointed out:
Yesterday i tweeted the Rick Ross lyric “Feels like we gettin money for the wrong things..” and 2 hours later i got an email from Compliance
It’s pretty obvious the last thing programs want to see is their players talking about violations. Even if Francis wasn’t, the compliance director must recognize that anything relating to players and money can become controversial. Better to be safe the way the director was than have a tweet end up in the NCAA investigation’s office. Even Francis recognizes that.
