I'm not allowed to say more than this at this time, but we're very happy this has come to fruition. Good things on the horizon.
From today's Sports Business Journal...
CBSSports.com and 247Sports.com, a college sports and recruiting network, are striking a partnership based in part around the latter's content. The Tennessee-based 247Sports.com will provide material to CBSSports.com and become an official partner of the site. Both companies declined to comment, but CBSSports.com logos have begun to show up on 247Sports.com network sites and execs for each camp last night tweeted about the developing deal. CBSSports.com Senior VP & GM Jason Kint tweeted, "@247Sports.com is #1 at recruiting. Thrilled to bring their coverage to @CBSSports.com audience. More to come." 247Sports.com Founder & CEO Shannon Terry responded, "Thanks @jason_kint. #247Sports team very excited about working with @CBSSports. So much potential."

Nice. Congrats bobby.
Congrats! That is quite an accomplishment!
Amazing how far this network has come in such a short amount of time.
Now you can say that you are asssociated with Tim Brando! Wow!!!
and don't forget Gary Danielson. I'm hoping 247 does not take on the SEC-bias that CBS exhibits.
Congrats all the same.
And now you can officially sanction Brian Jones' comments.
That's great news. CBS has replaced ESPN as the "home" sports site for me with the writing talent they've hired in the last couple of years. I never understood why they went with MaxPreps for recruiting though. Glad to see the upgrade and congrats on the partnership.
This is awesome. Congratulations Bobby!

A great time for 247Sports.com.
The future is very bright at 247Sports.com, and all the communities are a big reason. A special thanks to you guys.

Congrats to 247. This is big.
Looks like CBS is kicking Maxpreps to the curb, and for good reason.
I hope you guys get to call your own shots and do not have to abdicate your pursuit of what you guys consider as worthy. I do not want CBSSports to dictate in any way the wonderful content that is 247. Just my musings.
Congratulations to all!
Understatement of the year right there. This place is blowing the doors off the other recruiting sites.
Gregg Doyel please.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
Congrats to you Bobby, Gerry, Jeff & the rest of the crew...
Bobby, if you don't mind say, what is your position in the 247 Sports management tree? I always thought it was more than running this site, but obviously Shannon does most of the interviews for the company, etc.
My Dad always said "work hard, conduct your business with honesty and integrity, and success will follow". Congrats to all of you!!
Nice. Now, if you can just get LHN on Direct TV, then my Christmas list will be fulfilled.
I notice that the sharing of information between sites/reporters is a lot more active here which gives everybody the best possible information. You guys have a great model here and it is no wonder it is the best quality.
Does this mean we won't have to pay subscription fees any more?

This doesn't mean that we are going to have Ray Ratto writing columns here are we?
