In this day and age, college football programs are often willing to do whatever they need to do to secure the services of top prospects. And every year, schools devise new methods that they believe will help convince players to play for their program over the dozens of others offering similar scholarships. This year, the new trend appears to be recruiting both the players and their girlfriends.
Last month, we saw Michigan send a recruiting letter to the girlfriend of a four-star tight end. This week, Arkansas has taken things a step further. The Razorbacks sent 15 letters to Bailey Clary, girlfriend of three-star defensive end Caleb Roddy. She posted a photo of the stack to Twitter.

Clary did mention that Arkansas is Roddy’s “top college”, so perhaps whatever the Razorbacks are doing is working. Roddy has offers from 16 schools, including Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Arizona State.
