SEC Country is also the Bible Belt. Not surprisingly, that can factor into recruiting. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Mark Richt, Will Muschamp and Jimbo Fisher have turned a church into a recruiting battleground, while courting Rivals’ Five-Star linebacker Josh Harvey-Clemons.
The Georgia coach will attend a 90-minute Bible Study with Harvey-Clemons’ family this evening, before meeting in a church conference room. Though, Coach Boom already beat him there.
It created quite a stir when Florida’s coach showed up at church last month. “We gave everybody a heads up, and they were surprised to see [Muschamp],” Clemons said. “And the collection plate was equally surprised.”
Johnny-come-lately Jimbo Fisher’s visit will be relegated to a secular establishment.
