VIDEO: Auburn recruit snubs Clemson over their lack of a nearby Chick-fil-A

Four-star recruit Cassanova McKinzy had a tough decision to make on National Signing Day as the 6-foot-2 linebacker prospect had whittled down his choices to Auburn and Clemson, guaranteeing that whatever his choice, he would be playing for a team named the Tigers.  In the end McKinzy went with Auburn over Clemson for all the usual reasons, plus one tasty, mouth watering, waffle fries related one.

Like a lot of folks, Cassanova loves him some Chick-fil-A, and Auburn just so happens to have one of the restaurants right there on campus, while Clemson does not (or so he thought), which weighed heavily in McKinzy’s decision process.

Said the Auburn signee…

“(It was) kind of the environment and plus they had no Chick-Fil-A on campus,” McKinzy said of his decision to not attend Clemson. “You had to go like, probably like 15 minutes off campus to go to like a real restaurant. Their café was kind of small.”

But it seems McKinzy didn’t do his homework, or received some erroneous information, because Clemson does in fact have a Chick-fil-A on campus, and apparently it’s  the bomb.  Maybe recruiters should include the restaurant during their campus tours, just so this sort of situation doesn’t come up again.

Some players choose their schools with their hearts, some with their heads, and some go with a gut feeling.  Cassanova McKinzy went with his gastrointestinal tract, which seems as good a reason to pick a football program as any.

As a footnote, try and guess which two teams will meet in next year’s college football opening weekend Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at the Georgia Dome?  If you didn’t say Auburn and Clemson, then you may have brained your damage.
