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."
