NCAA rules that coaches can no longer subtweet recruits

One thing that has been used a recruiting tool over the last few years is when coaches will subtweet recruits as a way of enticing them to commit to their program. Social media has become a big time way of recruiting players and it looks like it could be changing.

According to multiple reports, the NCAA has ruled that it is now illegal for coaches to do just that for any unsigned recruits.

This doesn’t seem like a huge issue, but many coaches have taken to Twitter to tweet their pleasure with a possible recruit for their programs in the past. Now coaches must be very careful about who or what they are tweeting about.
