Tyler, Tx (KETK) — Longtime recuriting analyst Randy Rodgers was at APEC sports training in Tyler for his Blue Chip Recruiting Roundup Tour.
According to his website, the recruiting consultant for both Dave Campbell’s Texas Football magazine and Fox Sports-Southwest holds these workshops for high school athletes and their parents.
They have an opportunity to learn more about the college football recruiting process and how they can best maximize it for themselves.
Rodgers told KETK more and more college coaches are watching athletes social media, and what kids say online can play a huge part how they are recruited.
East Texas athletes we spoke with told us they are cautious about what they post on Facebook and Twitter, because they know their future coaches are watching.
