Wes Welker is one of the best wide receivers and special teamers to ever play at Texas Tech. He had over 250 receptions and 3,000 yards during his four-year career at the school. Welker also returned eight punts for touchdowns, which is tied for an NCAA record. Now, he has decided to try to help his alma mater with recruiting.
The thing is, Welker’s not allowed to do that. Former athletes are considered representatives of college athletic programs and are not allowed to communicate with recruits. That makes the following exchange that Welker had with community college wide receiver Nick Kurtz illegal.

Had he left it there, Welker may not have had a problem. His ice-breaker was subtle enough, but the Broncos receiver went into full-blown recruiting mode after that.
