It looks like Kirby Smart used one of his trademark moves on the recruiting trail on Tuesday.
The UGA football coach apparently did some of his recruiting across in Atlanta via helicopter, which has been nicknamed the “Kirbycopter.”
Very few things let a recruit know that a college head coach has arrived on your campus like a helicopter landing nearby. In fact, the whole student body was probably aware.
In Smart’s defense, even if he wasn’t using the helicopter for theatrics, it’s definitely the best way to get around that awful Atlanta traffic. Eagle’s Landing Christian is located in the southeast part of the city.
Head coaches only have limited days they can be on the road to recruit in person, per NCAA rules. This time last year, Smart used the Kirbycopter to visit as many as 15 high schools in one day.
