    UGA's Newest Recruiting Tactic: Drawn Portraits of the Recruit

    Story

    I don't buy that these pictures were "hand drawn." I figure they have a computer program that takes a picture of the recruit and uses it to "draw" the player.

    Getting the attention of a high schooler can be hard for anyone, but it can be especially difficult for college football coaches who are fighting for top prospects to play for their school.

    The Georgia Bulldogs appear to be taking a new approach.

    This week Peach State prospects Roquan Smith, Rashad Roundtree and D'Andre Walker, who are all being recruited by Georgia, posted photos on their Twitter accounts of hand-drawn portraits they received in the mail, complete with a personal message from Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt.

    Rasuputin's response to my question "What benefit do tablets provide students?"
    (In an old southern trailer park redneck beer in hand marlboro light in other and camoflauge cutoff shorts man's voice) If a tablet was good enough for Moses and the 10 Commandments then by god they are good enough for my children in school today!!!!!!!

    I've seen a lot of sketches and that looks like what you'd expect from someone in art class.

    I suppose the real question is what are the allowances when it comes to recruiting letters? Couldn't that be considered art and an impermissible benefit or do they have additional leave-way when it comes to recruiting letters?

    Surely that's not permissible.

    I was wondering the same.

    I also think it is hand drawn due to the deformed hand. Just doesn't look right even if the thumb is "unseen".

    They also promise them one complimentary mug shot during their four years between the hedges

    Howard:What? Galileo did his best work while drinking wine!
    Raj: How do you know that?
    Howard: He was Italian, it's a reasonable assumption.
    Raj: Dude, can you even open your mouth without saying a cultural stereotype?
    Howard: I'm sorry Galileo drank diet sprite!
