PSU Football Recruiting

Irritated PSU commit posts on Twitter about fans criticizing his parents

College football recruiting is such a high-profile business these days, with recruits posting updates on social media and passionate fans having the ability to speak directly to those young men with replies on Twitter and other platforms.

Just like with everything else on social media, sometimes people take it too far in responding to recruits or their families. That appears to be the case with Penn State commit Kaden Saunders, a 4-star wide receiver from Ohio.

Saunders posted this on Twitter on Tuesday night.

It’s unclear exactly what posts may have irritated Saunders, but it got to the point where it was bad enough that he felt the need to respond to them. He also didn’t specify if he was talking directly about fans of Penn State or just fans in general.

Saunders committed to PSU in July, and he made news over the weekend when he posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.31 seconds at a prospect camp.

He also has recently posted on Twitter about getting offers from Texas A&M, Illinois and Jackson State, which is coached by football legend Deion Sanders. His Rivals recruiting page says that Notre Dame “is making a major run” at him, along with Florida State, and that Ohio State “would be right near the top” if it makes him an offer.

Sometimes recruiting fans don’t like it when commits make posts about getting other offers, but it’s unclear if that has anything to do with this situation Saunders tweeted about concerning his parents.
