Fox Sports personality and Outkick The Coverage founder Clay Travis hammered the NCAA for its rules regarding the interactions coaches can have with recruits on social media.

Travis specifically was discussing the fact that it’s permissible to “like” or retweet a recruit’s social media posts, but it’s almost always not permissible to comment on a tweet or Facebook status. (RELATED: Clay Travis: ‘Nobody Saves More Lives For Black People Than The Police’ [VIDEO])

Travis likely has a very valid point when it comes to which schools would remain the best without NCAA rules. Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State and USC are perennial powers in college football and would almost certainly remain the same thanks to rich recruiting grounds, regardless of NCAA rules. (SLIDESHOW: Derek Jeter’s New Wife Loves Showing Off Skin)

The exact same could be said of Duke, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Kansas in college basketball.
