WATCH: Kirby Smart stars in a live Periscope video while visiting Alabama recruit

New UGA coach Kirby Smart stars in video

Have you ever wondered what it was like to have UGA’s football coach at your house for a visit?

Thanks to Tyler Simmons, the 3-star receiver who is committed to Alabama, we get a glimpse. Simmons is considering a flip to UGA and he did a live video feed during the in-home visit with Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart on Thursday night.

You can watch the feed via Periscope by clicking here.

Some observations:

  • UGA obviously wants Simmons because they sent the whole coaching staff there on one of the final nights of the recruiting period.
  • Smart was asked if UGA could get a red helicopter because the one he flew around in Atlanta on Thursday was yellow. “No doubt about it. It looked like a banana.”
  • Smart is obviously a fan of the Scarface movie with his “Say hello to my little friend” impression.
  • Maybe the best part of the video was Smart walking around with a full-sized bulldog on a leash.

Who knew Smart had such a carefree side after being locked away behind closed doors on Nick Saban’s staff for nearly a decade?

Note: The Periscope video will disappear within 24 hours, so watch it while you can.
