HOOPS HOAX: Man, 25, allegedly posed as teen to play basketball

A 25-year-old man posed as a teenager enrolled in a Dallas ISD high school and played basketball this school year.

Those who followed Dallas high school basketball this year may know the name Rashun Richardson.

Gilstrap-Portley transferred to Hillcrest High School in October, where he played for the Panthers and allegedly dated a 14-year-old old girl, reported KXAS, an NBC affiliate in Fort Worth, Texas.

His scheme was discovered when one of Gilstrap-Portley's former coaches, who witnessed him graduate from North Mesquite High School, saw him playing in an April tournament and alerted the Hillcrest staff.

"I hadn't heard anything about it", said Christina Lagoda, a parent.

"Even after reading some of their text messages he would say, 'Like, you know, I know all these girls are saying things to you - but I'm choosing you, '" the mom said.

"He was fairly savvy to be able to utilise that type of position, knowing that we were accepting Harvey students".

School officials, meanwhile, notified parents of the weird incident in a letter Monday and vowed to review the district's policies, KXAS reports.

"He fooled us. He did", said Christopher Bayer, the principal at Hillcrest High. However, when they spoke on the phone the unidentified woman said he was always respectful and her daughter assured her there relationship wasn't sexual.

'If it's happening at Hillcrest, then it could be happening somewhere else.

"I'm upset, frustrated, angry and sad at the same time", she said. "It could have gone differently if he had other intentions to hurt her or to traffic her".

The Dallas ISD is now investigating one of their students who they were told was Rashun Richardson.
