Adding up the cost of football recruits

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Todd Holcomb used Georgia's public records law to compare recruiting budgets for college football programs.  "It has become big business for big-time athletics programs. Each year, they spend more than $500,000 on recruiting, but they make more than $50 million in annual athletic revenue, mostly from football." The story shows the range, for example, between Valdosta State, a nationally ranked Division II program with a recruiting budget of $12,566, compared to Georgia Tech's $55,000 tab for football recruiting envelopes and stationery alone.
