You posted it in the right place.
And it's a good question that got me thinking, too.
How bad is it for these kids? Are they just getting bombarded with messages to the point where it stops being fun?
Sorry, but I'm kind of ignorant on this. I've got a Facebook page, but I haven't actually done anything with it yet (just created the account).
Strangers shouldn't be spamming guys with unwanted advice.
I think if you add a recruit as a facebook friend, you have some issues. If you do any kind of recruiting/attempted influence, you not only have issues, but you're potentially setting your school up for recruiting violations. However, at the same time, the recruits don't have to accept friend requests. If they do, they have a lot of options on how much the incoming friend can see as well as options on how much they want to see about that friend. I think a lot of these guys like the attention, if they really don't want it, they can avoid a good deal of it.
I would bet at certain schools that good looking girls are encouraged to Friend recruiting prospects.
I am pretty sure the NCAA is trying to crack down on some of the facebook recruiting. I will not ever become a friend of a recruit. My occupation could cause problems with that as well. I do have a few facebook friends that are on the team though but I only communicate with the few that I actually know personally.
Pimpin' ain't easy.
I really can't imagine asking a recruit to add you as a friend on Facebook. That is so seriously pathetic.... :huh:
thanks for the feedback. Ya this kid has over 700 friends which is definetly his fault. It just bugs me when he says he's going for a visit it blows up with people telling him where to go who he doesn't know. Thanks a lot.
Wispy you nailed it! People who add recruits are not friends and they do not care about the kids well being. Bottom line trust those u love and your own judgement is what I would pass on to any recruit NCAA athlete.
Your buddy needs to grow a thicker skin if he's allowed 700 strangers to be his FB friend. I don't have FB so I don't really know what those are, but he should find a way to communicate with real friends and ignore all the idiots.
ya definetly. Lot of it was his fault. But by guess was he was liking the whole recruiting process so he liked adding these people. Now it's coming back to bite him.
One of our recruits friend requested me, it was weird. And yes I'd like a cookie
Its gay just like facebook.
