Text messaging is the latest craze among colleges coaches. Mostly because the NCAA has yet to put a ban on the number of text messages a coach can send to a prospect. A coach may not be able to call a recruit every waking moment, but he can sure text him.
However, Pat Hill prefers the handwritten note:
"Mine is more of a personal touch," Hill said. "I'm not into texting or e-mailing. A lot of it after a while gets repetitious. I think we've lost that personal touch with the computer age."
