When it comes to technology, Les is more

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

LSU head coach Les Miles has used technology to help with recruiting.  Miles knows about texting and other advances to communicate with recruits, but is now getting a new experience.  It comes from cell phones and Face Time, which has opened up a whole new world to him.

Miles told a story, "I think the country gets smaller.  And I think it gets smaller with technology.  It gets smaller with I pads and TV and phones that are computer driven.  I had a prospect who is currently on our campus and going to school, so I guess he would be our LSU Tiger, and he said to me, here, coach, I want you to talk to Trey L, and he handed me his phone.  And he was Face Timing Trey L.  And I could see this little square in the corner that was me and this big, happy, smiling Trey there.  And I could tell him that we were closer and that this was easy.  And that we might try it again.  Except that I made the observation that it was me he was looking at and that had to be painful.  So I may kind of face time one way, if I can."

We don't think it works like that.  Coach Miles may know all about in-home visits, but those in-phone visits may still need some work.
