What’s really important to a college football athlete when choosing the right school? Location, academics, the ability to start early?
How about a school’s proximity to Chick-fil-A?
That’s apparently what swayed Birmingham, Ala., linebacker Cassanova McKinzy from Clemson to Auburn. When McKinzy visited the Clemson campus, there was no Chick-fil-A in sight, and that just wasn’t acceptable.
“[It was] kind of the environment and plus they had no Chick-fil-A on campus,” McKinzy said when asked why he didn’t choose 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.
“Never mind that there is a Chick-fil-A on Clemson’s campus. Clearly this crucial fact was not highlighted on McKinzy’s visit.
On further review, the Chick-fila-A Bowl approves the move by McKinzy from an ACC team to an SEC team.
