“I can promise you, I’m not a good-looking individual…”

If there’s one thing I’m pretty certain of, it’s that Mark Richt would never tolerate the likes of Lacey Pearl Earps as a recruiting hostess at Georgia.

    • The stigma that recruiting hostesses are tramps, basically. I’m not saying that they are. In fact, for most programs, I’m sure they’re intelligent and successful students who happen to be outgoing and good looking. That said, when you have dirt bag coaches like Kiffin, I think all bets are off. Shallow people tend to attract the same.

    We went on countless visits over the last few years and most of the hostesses were very normal looking and not at all slutty. We would occasionally see one that was extra flirty, but nothing crazy. I thought VA Tech had the best idea. They were all female athletes from various sports. It really gave the guys a better perspective on the time demands, etc. of being a student athlete.

    We met several of the UGA girls. They were all very nice classy young ladies. Every one.

  7. My Daughter was an Athletic Hostess for Alabama. They choose them based on more than their good looks. Must have a 4.0 GPA and Sorority sponsors.

      The Alabama hostesses did all seem quite sharp. And, the whole visit experience there was the most organized and thoughtful. On the ball with extra water on hot days, etc. They really do a fantastic job there; top recruiting classes are no big surprise.

    This “mis-perception” thing is not entirely accurate. It’s a two way street. Most hostesses are attracted to work with hyped athletes. The recruits also get a little eye candy outta the deal. Most of the action for (some) recruits on visits happen with the non-affiliated groupies. Bama, UT , Ole miss and especially AU have the process perfected. Has to do a lot with the athlete being recruited and whether the parents are involved on the visit
