8. Social media has played such a big role now a days. Thats how we all find things out now is through the internet and social media. You can find out what an athlete is thinking everyday if you go and check his Twitter.

9. I got recruited by performing at a high level, and after my season I went to camps and combines to better my chances. I also made a highlight tape and sent it to various colleges.

10. The advantages are obviously not paying for a very expensive education and not having to worry about paying student loans. The negative effect is keeping it, you have everything in the world to lose. Getting in to a fight or putting the wrong thing on the internet, and you can lose it in seconds.

Negative recruiting is the darkside of recruiting. Just about every school does it in some form or fashion to convince recruits to sign with them rather than the competition.

2. A lot of critics and fans, tend to twist coach's words around through social media and the internet. This effects an athletes decision and adds to the negativity of recruitment.

3. Coaches know that there is negative aspects of recruiting, but at the end of the day, their job is to "sell" their university. The ultimate goal is to get the best players from around the country, this is where the illegal and negative aspects come in to play.
Dorian Stevens's comment, March 18, 2013 11:48 PM
4. Universities "sell" their school by down grading other schools, instead of boasting about the accomplishments at their own institution. This makes it hard for highly recruited athletes to trust coaches when another school is telling you otherwise.

1. Social Media in college recruiting has had an enormous negative effect. Highly recruited athletes are constantly getting messages from crazy fans and others persuading them to come to their university. Although the fans may think they're being nice, this puts a lot of stress on the athlete. Which in turn, can lead them to the wrong decision.
Dorian Stevens's comment, March 15, 2013 8:05 AM
2. The NCAA is trying to eliminate the contact between fans and prospective athletes, but with social media it is virtually impossible. Some fans mean no harm, but there are also fans who have sent out "death threats" as well. Which will definitely make an athlete make the wrong decision.
Dorian Stevens's comment, March 15, 2013 8:08 AM
3. "The only way to realistically prevent contact of this sort is to ban recruits from using Twitter.” Banning recruits from the usage of Twitter would not be logical. Every prospective athlete is also a teenager and should have the right to any type of social media.

1. Twitter has become a great recruiting device for college coaches. This gives coaches to the chance to "check up" on their prospective athlete and see what his interests are. Some people are hired just to monitor prospective athletes to make sure they aren't doing anything wrong.
Dorian Stevens's comment, March 15, 2013 8:15 AM
2. "Another prevalent issue with the use of social media in collegiate level athletics is the unwanted pressure commonly applied to potential student-athletes to attend a certain university." Some recruits enjoy the attention, others feel very pressured in making the wrong decision.
Dorian Stevens's comment, March 15, 2013 8:18 AM
3. "High school senior and top recruit for collegiate level football, C.J. Johnson, deleted his Facebook account all together after receiving so many messages and comments about both his recruiting decision and his family." This has become a huge problem in college sports. The NCAA should be able to protect prospective athletes better than they have shown.
