There's no indication as to how long Gilstrap-Portley would have continued playing if he weren't caught, or whether he would've taken up a new name and come back to play even more high school ball after graduation.

Rashun Richarson is actually Sidney Bouvier Gilstrap-Portley, a 25-year old former basketball player at Dallas Christian College.

Gilstrap-Portley enrolled at Hillcrest, saying he was homeless after being displaced by the storm. As reported by Dana Branham, Claire Ballor and Julieta Chiquillo, the 25-year-old began the 2017-18 school year at Skyline High School "claiming to be a Hurricane Harvey refugee" named Rashun Richardson, then transferred to Hillcrest in October to join the basketball team. She says district officials believe Gilstrap-Portley's primary motivation was to play basketball.

On top of the awards that he received, he started getting some attention from some local accounts that follow high school basketball.

As a student, Gilstrap-Portley dated a 14-year old girl. "He was fairly savvy to be able to utilize that type of position, knowing that we were accepting Harvey students". "It's unbelievable to me that he could get away with this", the woman said. It was revealed that he was an imposter when his former basketball coach recently saw him playing for a high school team, the source said. "I don't know what, how [the school] let this slip through the cracks".

"He was a good kid", North Mesquite's coach, Phillip Randall, told the newspaper. Except, no. He was, in the words of the Dallas ISD superintendent, "a con man" who was arrested Friday and faces charges of tampering with government documents.
