I am pretty sure Hernandez’s lawyers have instructed him to be a model a prisoner and not say anything to anyone. He isn’t going to come out and say he has gang affiliations just because prison officials asked him. That would be stupid and while Hernandez isn’t the brightest guy around, he isn’t that dumb.
TMZ is reported that Hernandez has been moved to Solitary Confinement for his own protection. He isn’t allowed one on one interaction with any inmates, but does get three free hours outside of his cell.
