KU football coach David Beaty shows off recruiting game
By now, you've surely heard, read or been told about second-year Kansas football coach David Beaty's reputation as a recruiter.
With strong ties throughout the state of Texas and an energetic, enthusiastic and infectious personality, Beaty, throughout his career, has made building relationships with players, coaches, recruits, fans and administrators one of the most important aspects of his style.
Now, thanks to a Twitter video posted by Class of 2017 wide receiver Reggie Roberson, who committed to KU in mid-May, we get to see a small glimpse into what it's like to be on the receiving end of some of Beaty's recruiting attention.
While the video has blown up on Twitter and received feedback from all over the place, I'd be willing to bet that it actually is pretty tame compared to some of the tactics Beaty has used in the past or will use in the future.
That said, it's a clear sign that he understands today's young athletes and seeks to relate to them on their terms not his. Roberson loved it and I'd bet the rest of the team and KU's targets did, as well.
