Kline joined Twitter in May 2010. When Florida Coach Billy Donovan began to follow him, Kline felt as if he was gaining credibility. When Roberts placed an unprompted call to him, Kline was particularly bedazzled.

That Roberts is Norm Roberts, former Florida assistant, and it's interesting to see that Alex Kline, or @TheRecruitScoop, found some validation in Florida coaches following his work. This story, of a 17-year-old who's smartly insinuated himself into the lives and recruiting sagas of major college basketball prospects, is a really interesting one, even if it's more "This happened" than analysis of how. It's also a reminder that recruiting's weird.
