This offseason, recruits have seemingly gotten bolder while repping their future schools, however linebacker James Hearns, a Florida commit, learned the hard way that there's a time and a place for everything — and that place is not Florida State.

While playing in a 7-on-7 camp held by Florida State on the Florida State campus, Hearns decided to do the infamous Gator chomp in the face of the opposing quarterback after sacking him. Hearns was promptly ejected from the game and asked to leave the camp. It was his second taunt of the game.

Hearns tried to play it off on Twitter after being questioned about it: "I did the gator chomp at the Fsu camp and they ejected me from the camp and now people are making it a big deal," he wrote. "It wasn't that big of a deal to me... We won the whole camp and that's all that matters."

Unfortunately for Hearns, recruits have been under the microscope lately after a couple rounds of burning letters from rival schools and recruits threatening to fight fans. Taunting is never good and it's something that will get him ejected from a college game as well. Hearns getting booted was probably more about the taunting than it was the type of taunting. Still, this seems fairly harmless and Hearns was apologetic on Twitter once the story started to circulate.

"I didnt want none of this to happen... Relax people.. It's not that big of a deal," he wrote.

This isn't the first time a recruit has been asked to leave a camp after showing love to their future school on someone else's campus. In 2008, Miami commit Tavadis Glenn was asked to leave Florida's Friday Night Lights event after throwing up the "U" to the crowd. Glenn ended up in prep school and never made it to Miami.

Hopefully Hearns won't suffer the same fate.
