With National Signing Day 2016 approaching, here is a look at how programs are making their final push via social media


As you sit around the office today wondering what more you and the rest of your staff could be doing to make your final push before Wednesday, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at what other coaches and programs across the country are doing to deliver their message to recruits with just a few days left until National Signing Day 2016.

Their tweets including a variety of approaches, including showing off the NFL talent the program has churned out like this tweet from new Toledo head coach Jason Candle.

Washington turned to some former players to see what made them decide on the Huskies, and put it together in a really nice 30 second video.

Notre Dame has rolled out a full on #PotOfGold blitz with quick Vines, and also put together a nice graphic to show their large recruiting footprint including all of the cities Brian Kelly has hit (9 of them total) in the past six days.

Some guys are big believers that your players (or current commits) are your best recruiters, like this one from Penn State quarterback commit Jake Zembiec

SMU assistant Keith Gunn went the nice little catchphrase route.

Some guys, like Western Michigan offensive line coach Brian Callahan, prefer the motivational quote route

Teh guys at Mercer do a great job mixing things up with their graphics

Other guys, like Ohio State director of player personnel Mark Pantoni, prefer to drive home their point with a funny tweet

What are you and your staff doing on social media for your final pitch? Let me know @CoachSamz or via email at
