Recruit gets 52 letters from Georgia Tech… in one day

If you visit this site often enough, you know we rarely cover recruiting outside of National Signing Day. That said, the following story is, if nothing else, thoroughly impressive.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Georgia Tech recruit Charles Mack received, count ’em, 52 letters from the Yellow Jackets when he received a large package from the school in the mail last week.

“I opened it up, and it had typed letters, hand-written letters, newsletters from the school … 52 in all,” Mack, an Atlanta area recruit, told the AJC. “I was shocked and surprised. I started reading all of them, and I still haven’t finished.”

“For them to send 52 letters through the mail in one day, including a personal letter from each coach on the staff, it spoke highly of Georgia Tech,” said Mack’s father, Charles II, who played fullback for Tech from 1983-87. “As an alum, I was excited for my son. Of course, Georgia Tech has a wide array of things to offer. I think it would be a great fit for him. But at the end of the day, it’s going to be his choice.”

Amazingly enough, Mack still has not received a scholarship offer from the Yellow Jackets yet. But, with 52 letters from the coaching staff, one would think an offer is on the way.

Of course, Georgia Tech’s recruiting efforts still fall well short — just under half, to be exact — of Nick Saban‘s single-day record of 105 letters sent to Norcross (GA) recruit Alvin Kamara.

    With all the stupid recruiting rules in the NCAA, there’s nothing for 52 letters in one package?

    In the era of texting and email, …… 52 letters is ridiculous.

    dawglb, they get slammed if they send too many texts. And do you read all your e-mails? With all the garbage being forwarded, most people barely glance at their e-mails. From this recruit’s reaction, it’s obvious old-fashioned letters still make an impact.
