247Sports.com To Become CBSSports.com's Recruiting Partner
CBSSports.com and 247Sports.com have signed a multiyear partnership agreement, formalizing and expanding an affiliation that began last November. In the deal, 247Sports.com will become the exclusive recruiting partner for CBSSports.com and MaxPreps.com, and 247Sports.com content will appear on those sites with traffic links, including team and player rankings. CBSSports.com also becomes the exclusive advertising sales partner for 247Sports.com, and the two entities will jointly sell inventory. Negotiations on the long-term deal finished last week, following up on a smaller integration based around the '13 National Signing Day in February.
CBSSports.com Senior VP & GM Jason Kint said, "We're thrilled to partner more closely with them to deliver the highest quality recruiting content to our audience."
