We think the Hogs’ head football coach is good at using Twitter and having fun with it, too. You can read more of his tweets from the past here.

Here’s another fun hint/tease from Bret Bielema posted a few nights ago. Budda03 is Alex Collin’s nickname/handle on Twitter.

And for what it’s worth, Alex retweeted this post from Bielema to his followers on the social media service, too.

Collins is clearly having fun with his recruiting process and Twitter.

It’s nice to see the positive side of recruiting and social media.

In late January, Bret Bielema’s Arkansas Razorbacks football program will host Alex Collins, the top all-purpose back in the country, a senior running back from SouthFREE Razorback & Red Wolves Recruiting Guides Plantation High School in Plantation, Fla. He’s 5’11, 195 and had listed Wisconsin as one of the schools he was interested in checking out.

Oh, and in addition to the Badgers, Collins has indicated interest in Florida State, Florida, Miami, and Louisville, among others.
