The Chick-fil-A factor and recruiting

Did Clemson lose a top recruit because the coaching staff doesn't know where the Chick-fil-A is located on campus? Looks that way.

About an hour ago, Chick-fil-A's official Twitter account posted the following:

signee McKinzy says lack of played a factor in picking Tigers over   /via 
The player, Cassanova McKinzy, told CBS 42 in Birmingham that he was swayed to Auburn over Clemson because "(It was) kind of the environment and plus they had no Chick-Fil-A on campus. You had to go like, probably like 15 minutes off campus to go to like a real restaurant. Their café was kind of small."

Well, it turns out that Clemson does indeed have a Chick-fil-A on campus. In fact, Chick-fil-A points out that Clemson has had a store since 1992, and it was one of the first colleges to get an on-campus branch of the fast-food restaurant.

Don't worry, though. This will all get sorted out on Sept. 1 when Clemson and Auburn meet in the Georgia Dome for the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

Talk about motivation.
