it is being monitored and monitored closely. I can tell you a certain interaction by a poster/blogger and a certain high profile recruit has caught the attention of PSU coaches and the compliance office. My suggestion to all of you, don't talk to recruits on twitter, it's only going to lead to bad things.
Last time I checked it was a free country. Other than being an alum, I have no connection w/ PSU. If I wanna tweet a kid and tell him he should go to PSU the NCAA can kiss my ass. They can't regulate free speech, hell they can't even regulate their own member schools!
Dominate The State
Agree with PSUJT$, i dont go nuts, but every once in a while ill wish them luck and let them know i want them at psu...
How about you grow up and leave the kids alone let the Fitz's of the world contact the kids
There's a line and you guys know where it is...a simple #PSU tweet to a kid isn't what he's referencing.
Thanks for the heads up, 17.
In this day and age it's so difficult to keep every means of communication under wraps. Recruits/fans, etc. find a way to communicate. It's just the way this world works.

If it isn't the coaches tweeting the recruit, why would the compliance office even care?
You're right cause only kids use twitter but telling someone to grow up on a message aboard devoted to following 18-24 years olds in very mature!

Technically speaking I don't think fans are allowed to contact recruits AT ALL for the fear of bribing them with money, girls, sex, tatoos, etc. to come to the school. Logically it makes sense but it's damn near impossible to prevent. Every school in the country would be on probation/penalized if they actually acted upon this stuff.
People can do what they want, I'm just telling you, it's being watched and watched closely. For crying out loud, it's a violation to chant a kid's name and make signs at a basketball game. You don't think it's a violation to directly contact kids and interact with them on twitter? It's a fine line folks, I suggest you tread lightly.

Thanks Josh. I wasn't thinking from that perspective. I guess you never know if it could be a booster hiding behind a screen name offering gifts, money and so on.
Nothing like overzealous fans stalking a kid on twitter. What a joke. The NCAA has rules in place and as crazy as some of them are, they are rules. In the last week we have seen a former teammate at Trotwood-M High congratulate a former high school teammate on his decision to chose Michigan and its a violation.
Stop the tweets to recruits. It's a bit childish when you really get down to it. Why tweet someone you don't know to begin with?
very true, we are all here hanging on these kids actions, why push it even farther
I can guarantee our fans are not the only ones talking to recruits. If the NCAA does something to us about twitter, then they need to do the same to pretty much every other school.
I don't tweet or even browse twitter for that matter, but I agree that it's a fine line that you bring up.
This is a worthless conversation. It's like telling someone they should obey the speed limit b/c the police might catch you but won't punish you. I tweeted AB in your honor!
A good release Baylor put out on the subject earlier this week.
I follow some targets and current players on twitter, but I NEVER tweet them. I have never even made a damn tweet. I agree that twitter is starting to cross the line.
I guess I can agree with o$u for once we do have some ahole psu fans. Psu has no reason to give NCAA a reason to bring psu in the news.
Are you serious? What do you think this board is devoted to?! So it's ok to relentlessly talk about a kid on a message board but when he tweets "where should I go to school?" and you respond "Penn State!" it's stalking? Can you spell HYPOCRITE?!
This site is not a direct line of communication to a kid. Tweeting is. I can tell you will never get it.
You're right I don't "get it," I'm so jealous that you do and I don't!
I am not on Twitter, but isn't this exactly why it was invented?
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
Ahole have no reason to be jealous. Ahole will always be stupid. Here is hoping that you get pissed at all of us and leave this board.
I don't tweet a kid. I don't stalk recruits via Facebook or Twitter like apparently you do. Don't call me a hypocrite. As Trock has said, message boards like this aren't lines of direct communication to a recruit, like Twitter or Facebook. Yes, I'm serious. I worked in collegiate athletics for 16 years and again, as strange as some of the NCAA rules are, there is a fine line right now regarding fans communicating with prospects via these lines of communications. I don't like it when a PSU poster does this. It's almost like begging a kid to come. Let the OSU's and Florida's and LSU's of the world do this.
