The social media company that lets fans share photos and videos of Louisville football players, recruits and other college football players will let fans post photos and video of Louisville players and recruits at their home locations.
The Louisville Football Recruiting Tool, as it’s called, will allow fans to post photos or videos of themselves and others who have posted to their account.
If a fan wants to post to a school’s campus, they will have to register their account with Facebook.
The feature was announced Thursday and will be available to Louisville’s student-athletes and staff members.
It will allow players to have their photos and photos of their team’s players posted on social media and the Louisville-area community.
The tool will allow people to share photos or video of themselves at their own homes, as well as friends and family, to let fans know when their favorite players are at school.
The announcement came shortly after Louisville football fans across the country expressed concern over the program’s recruiting efforts.
In March, the university suspended four players, including offensive tackle Alex Okafor, for violating team rules and failed to abide by NCAA recruiting rules.
Okafor had played in nine games with Louisville during the 2016 season.
He played in seven games in 2017, starting all 11 and finishing with two sacks and three tackles for loss.
The university’s website lists eight players on its recruiting list who have signed with other schools.
Among them is receiver Daquan Smith, who was one of two recruits that Louisville released during the offseason, after the school lost three players.
Louisville was one the first programs to announce its intention to recruit players, but the move came as a surprise.
The program was already on a path to being ranked No. 1 in the country before the suspensions.
Ole Miss, which is ranked No, 2 Alabama and No. 3 Auburn, had a four-year, $36 million contract with offensive lineman Andrew Norwell.
