Tennessee coach Butch Jones by University of Tennessee

The recruiting world underwent a change on Monday, August 1.

Coaches and staff may now recognize a recruit’s social media activity. They cannot comment on the social media posts, but can retweet, favorite, share, like and repost. The rule went into effect at midnight, but no SEC coaches immediately jumped in on the action at the turn of the clock.

The Arizona State compliance offered a brief rundown of the new rules:

For further information on the rule changes, the Tennessee compliance office conducted a question and answer session via Twitter.

The rule changes have already been met with mixed reviews. While some coaches have gone crazy with the retweets like former Georgia coach Mark RichtVols coach Butch Jones, and South Carolina’s Will Muschamp, Auburn offensive line coach Herb Hand posted his “hot take” on the situation.

The new rules are sure to clog your Twitter timelines, as coaches and staffs continue to test the waters. We’ll have to wait and see what comes out of the new regulations.
