A Kentucky station reported that a top recruit chose the Wildcats. He didn't choose the Wildcats.

It's been a rough couple of days for Kentucky recruiting.

First, on Thursday a top basketball recruit committed to Kansas, but accidentally said he was committing to Kentucky first. 

Then on Friday, Wildcats football lost out on local top running back Damien Harris, who picked Alabama instead

Apparently, Lexington station WKYT was in its own world. Before Harris had even announced, they ran a "Breaking News" alert saying Harris had chosen the Wildcats.

Oops. Minutes later, Harris committed to the Crimson Tide, likely crushing the hearts of Kentucky fans who saw the graphic and had thought they just stole one away from Bama.
