Every year college football coaches look for some new ways to stand out and make an impression with recruits. In Georgia’s case, perhaps utilizing an impressionistic style is the key.
Mark Richt and his staff are now reportedly sending out portraits of recruits as their latest recruiting tool. The portraits are sketches of the recruit with the left side of their body shown in their high school football uniform and the right side of the image showing what they may look like wearing the colors of the Georgia Bulldogs.
Defensive end D’Andre Walker is one of the players to have received his own likeness through the mail from the football offices in Athens. Linebacker Roquan Smith also received a sketch in the mail.

If nothing else, perhaps it will help sell recruits on the idea of becoming an art major while playing football for Georgia.
