It’s Prom season, which means all of your social media channels are crammed with pictures of teenagers pinning boutonnieres on their dates and worrying about how the night will end.

Several UK commitments and recruits posted their pics on Instagram and Twitter, including Matt Elam above. It takes a real man to wear pink. Some others…

Tyler Ulis:

Karl-Anthony Towns (yes, we shared this last week, too):

Five-star running back Damien Harris:

2014 WR commit Blake Bone:

2014 DE commit Lloyd Tubman:

Tubman also posted this one of his date’s dad which cracked me up:

Ahh, youth.

      You don’t know what you’re talking about troll.

    I like the one with Tubman and his date’s dad.

    Agreed, this is a bizarre thing to post. The interest in high school recruits should begin and end on the court/field.

    If you think it’s creepy to repost innocent pics these guys posted on their Instagram, then you are probably a creepster yourself. You’re seeing something into this that just isn’t there. There is nothing creepy or bizarre about this. I don’t care who they took to prom but the post isn’t creepy.

      Fine, if you want to take an interest in the personal lives of high schoolers, go for it.

    Matt Elam looks like he has trimmed down and is trying to get into shape for summer camp. Awesome to see his dedication!

      Of course, a black tux is very slimming.

      To say this is creepy, don’t you know that as we progress as a society (Thank God) everything is OK.
      15 years ago, guys kissing was wrong, two women who love each other couldn’t even legally get married. 10-15 years ago the country would never have voted in a wonderful black man as president, or like our next president (hopefully) a woman! Get over yourself calling these wonderful photos “creepy”. Everything is ok, acceptance is key to progression

      You would think someone as “Progressive” as Stone Cold said so would be able to figure out how to use the internet.

      Stone cold. I think you misunderstood the creepy comment. Its being called creepy because someone is stalking highschool kids and their promdates and posting their pictures on a website. Put that card back in your pocket you might need it another time. And I’m not sure if sarah Palin is running for president. But we can hope.

    No one is stalking kids for pictures…they tweet/fb/instagram/whatever for the world to see. I see like 50 prom pics every time I get on FB this time of year. This is not even slightly creepy.

    Elam proving real men aren’t afraid to wear pink.

    I would not want to mess with Lloyd’s date’s dad. That guy is a tank

    Does Tubman’s date’s Dad have any eligibility left? The Guy’s forearm is as big / bigger than Ulis’ leg.

    Elam and Ulis win in the ‘Dayum, she’s a doll’ department.
