Iowa recruiting coordinator talks social media

Iowa tight ends coach / recruiting coordinator Eric Johnson talks about and early signing period and maximizing social media.

“I’ve just heard some schools down South don’t necessarily want that early signing date because now all of a sudden have to see us in the winter a little bit. That gives them a little bit of a recruiting advantage down South. They always want to keep their eggs in their own baskets rather than try to compete against someone up here.”

(on twitter) “Not enjoying that too much, but it’s just part of the job. A lot of the stuff we do is for recruiting and for the fans, as well.” 

“I don’t think you’ll see Coach Ferentz or Norm (Parker) twittering any time soon.”

(on seeing our recruiting sites scramble to get a story after we tweet something interesting) “That maybe the best aspect of twitter.”
