    College Football Prospects Being Watched on Facebook and Twitter

    Social Media is a new and popular way for colleges to both monitor and communicate with potential recruits. Just about every elite recruit has a Facebook or Twitter account, or both.

    Under NCAA rules, a coach can send a Facebook friend request to a prospective student-athlete and follow them on Twitter.

    Many high school football players are cautioned about the dangers by parents and coaches. Joe Burns, the co-founder of the RisingSeniors.com high school all-star game, even went as far to have a 90-minute educational seminar for last seasonís participants.

    It's also a popular way for WnE, Dede and other sociopaths to stalk and harass recruits.

    Unfortunately for some recruits, their comments and tweets are also destroying relationships with colleges.

    Last year, one of New Jersey’s top prospects was expelled from school and reportedly had scholarship offers withdrawn after posting explicit messages on Twitter.
    So I guess Isaiah Crowell's drugs and sex rants on facebook along with wearing pot leaves and flippin' off the camera in every shot didn't dissuade the reverend from taking him.

    not at all. I tried to find them online, but they must have been taken out of the public domain. Good move, Rev.

    I don't remember where it was mentioned, but that was actually directed by the UGA staff for him to completely update his facebook page to remove all the crap that was on it.

    oh, the world we live in. you know you're dealing with a moron when they have to be told to take down such ridiculous crap posted for all to see. yeah, we all do stupid things when we're young. but, i wouldn't have dreamed of posting anything like he had up if the net had been around when i was a teen.
