Pokemon GO is Being Used to Market to One College Football Recruit

By Tyler Bingham - Jul 15 2016

Just in time for the point of the year when college football recruiting gets a little silly, the Pokemon GO craze has reached its peak. According to the Dallas News, Texas A&M running back pledge Travis Etienne Jr., who has only made a verbal commitment to the Aggies, received this piece of Pokemon GO themed recruiting material from Oklahoma State. 

Etienne is going to graduate from his high school in Jennings, Louisiana, at the end of this upcoming school year. As a running back, he has been in high demand. He has gotten offers from colleges such as Alabama, Virginia Tech, Louisiana Tech, and Kansas. 

Even though the attempt from Oklahoma State is admirable, unfortunately it didn't work. Good luck to Etienne at Texas A&M.
