On a scale of 1-10 for the most insane college recruiting tactics, this one used by the Tennessee Volunteers might have actually gone past the 10 scale. The Volunteers, along with every other major college football program, are going above and beyond to get 4-star defensive tackle Shy Tuttle from Lexington, NC, to come to get their school. Beyonce just happens to be one of the most desired celebrities right now and just about every young man’s fantasy. Tennessee used some creativity and reach for this recruiting technique, where they photoshopped Tuttle’s image in a Tennessee tshirt on a Rolling Stones magazine cover with Beyonce.
I’m not sure that this will be the tipping of the scales for Tuttle, but it certainly is different.
