Baylor Football Sets Up Official Recruiting Twitter Account

New, 8 comments

This decision is a bit curious, and I'm not entirely sure what Baylor decided they needed an additional twitter account just for purposes of recruiting. But we have one now: @BaylorGangFB.

Now, in addition to @BUFootball, @CoachArtBriles, and the other accounts associated with Baylor Athletics, we have one dedicated solely to football recruiting, with Baylor formally embracing the "Baylor Gang" moniker.

As I said above, this is an interesting decision, both from a marketing standpoint (for Baylor Football) and a recruiting one.  I'm not sure many other schools have official recruiting accounts, and I'm not sure what we plan to do with it, now that we have one.  If anything, however, it should provide at least a glimpse into the world of Baylor recruiting.  The account is already following a number of 2014 and 2015 recruits of varying pedigree, and I'll keep a close eye on it for Names to Know going forward.

I've already updated the Twitter Guide to Baylor Athletics v. 2.0 with this news.
