The first day of August turned out to be an especially busy day on Twitter for college football recruiting. Not only did the NCAA start allowing college coaches to retweet and like a high school player's tweet, but it was also the first day schools could officially extend a scholarship offer to the athletes in the class of 2017.

That created a unique scenario where recruits were sharing their scholarship offers from different schools and then the respective coaches from those schools would often retweet that picture. Welcome to recruiting in 2016.

The interesting thing to come out of this, however, is a first-hand look at what an offer from Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide actually looks like.

Defensive back Kyriq McDonald, who was one of two players to commit to Alabama via video on Sunday, shared his letter from the Alabama head coach on Twitter.

Alabama recruiting is so far ahead of the rest of college football that their letters even come from the future.
