For those of you who are into college sports recruiting, you’ve probably checked out a player or two on Tennessee based Rivals.com. With a new CEO in place, Yahoo! just inked a deal to purchase the site. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
This acquisition could be an indicator that Yahoo! is taking a step toward further expansion, driving in an additional 2 Million+ users of Rivals.com into Yahoo!land. The biggest of the potentially huge deals, could find Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp trading MySpace.com for a 25% stake in Yahoo!, which would be a huge boon to Yahoo! as it tries to truly make itself a “one-stop shopping” destination for online users.
