Iowa State HC Matt Campbell beats recruit at Madden, declares himself ‘king’

If you are a college football coach and want to gain a ton of recruits, learning to get good at Madden would probably help you out. New Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell learned that on Saturday.

Campbell went to visit a recruit earlier this week and played the popular game with him. Campbell ended up beating the recruit and he then went on Twitter to brag about it.

It probably helps the Cyclones that Campbell is willing to sit down and play video games with his players. I don’t expect Iowa State to have the best recruiting class in the country in the next few years, but this will certainly help them gain favor with some of them.
