    Clemson commit, teammate of Yates, trained by Willie Anderson. 2020 class so not this year. So we have 11 more months to relentlessly recruit him.

    He has a good relationship with Key also. I'm having a good feeling about this one, and what a day that would be if we can flip one from Clemson! Time will tell. I just wish he was in this class. He's huge for a HS Jr. 6-5, 325. :cooleek:

    There’s several 2020 OL that will be interesting to watch. 5* kid out of norcross committed to Stanford. The third Braun boy is an uncommitted 4*. And now this kid too. Lot of time and potential there.

    Our entire recruiting effort revolves around Waffle House.

    This, I think, is a little bit weird, but I can't say I disagree. I mean, come on, everybody loves Waffle House.

    Coffee or Cocaine? I hear they are pretty good at making both.

    WH is a natural connection when you are out all hours of the day recruiting. WH is everywhere in our area and it’s always open. I like the connection.

    I would say our entire recruiting effort revolves around hard work. If you need a place to meet, eat, or drink at 6 am or midnight, Waffle House is your best option.

    Also plays in to the "Atlanta's Team" image CGC is trying to build. Maybe he can work CFA in too somehow. Chicken biscuits make everything better.

    I'm beginning to think our entire FB program is going to revolve around WaHo, not just the recruiting part. I heard a sound clip from yesterday's press conference and caught some of the audio from before the "actual" press conference began. When he was up there arranging things on the podium and moving all those phones around to fit, he put his cup down and somebody said something like, "nice product placement." CGC laughed it off and said something like, "That was totally voluntary."

    Isn't their CEO a Tech grad? Founder's son was a Tech grad. I like it.

    Perhaps we have discovered the deep pocket donor for the football program?

    This was my initial thought as well, but I'm sure we're not the only ones doing it.

    Yep. It makes a lot of sense, especially since the company itself is very receptive to it and has been reciprocating by showing love to Tech/CGC on social media.
