Speaking of irony, how about this?
The Georgia Bulldogs have been firmly in the mix throughout the race, and Mims’ potential positional coach has helped to keep them there.
“I talk to Coach [Matt] Luke more than I talk to Coach [Kirby] Smart. We talk about football and get to know each other, too,” Mims said. “He’s a great coach, and he cares about his players. He gives everyone an opportunity.”
Luke’s track record, specifically with former Ole Miss tackle and first-round NFL Draft pick Laremy Tunsil, is weighing heavily on Mims’ mind.
“I mean, Coach Luke has had a player like me before,” Mims said. “Now, he’s the highest-paid tackle in the league, so . . .”
The connection Luke has developed with Mims since his arrival from Ole Miss has been nothing short of impressive…
Who’da thunk Georgia would go from Tunsil being a recruiting sore spot to a recruiting sales pitch? (With Luke being the pitch man, to boot.) What a country!
