UGA Is Sending Recruits Hand-Drawn Portraits

Recruiting has always been cutthroat, but these days, you really have to do something unique to stand out from the crowd of suitors. (Even if that something is nothing at all.) To that end, Georgia has been sending potential recruits sketches of themselves, along with a semi-personalized message from coach Mark Richt.

All in all, not bad! Especially since I can totally see Kentucky sending recruits really exaggerated caricatures that make them self-conscious about their appearance, turning them off to the program forever.
