74/90 All-Americans said No.
2. Which fan base did the best job of recruiting you on social media?
Georgia - 9
Michigan - 7
Penn State - 6
Alabama, LSU, and Oklahoma - 5
3. Which fan base was the most annoying on social media?

Texas - 8
Alabama - 6

I don't know how to embed his tweets, but I'll try in the comments below.
Morale of the story; Don't tweet at recruits or their parents and coaches, and don't be a jerk on social media if you can't follow rule #1. But please, follow rule #1.
Thanks and Go Blue!
