College football coaches only have so much leeway in terms of utilizing social media as a recruiting tool. Luckily, many have received help from their programs’ loyal fan bases. Obviously, Kentucky’s Big Blue Nation has been on top of it when it has come to superstar basketball one-and-dones, but first year Tennessee football coach Butch Jones got probably the most single helpful tweet we have seen thus far.
Above is a photoshopped box of Honey Nut Cheerios that reads “Berrios” instead. Why? Because Braxton Berrios is ranked as a four-star recruit by 247 Sports and already has offers on the table from the likes of Miami, South Carolina and Ohio State along with the Vols. Jones is working tirelessly to rebuild the UT football program after Derek Dooley’s disastrous three-year tenure and bringing in the elite wide receiver would go a long ways towards making that happen.
Berrios, for his part, was extremely impressed.
Yes, in case you were wondering, Berrios’ Twitter handle, @HNYNUT_BERRIOS, is the greatest ever.
Speaking of greatest thing ever, even the Big Blue Nation was impressed. The Wildcats have also extended a scholarship offer to Berrios, and now the program will have to figure out a way to impress the young star, photoshop-style.
