Current Buffalo Bills receiver and former Georgia Bulldog Isaiah McKenzie detailed one of the funnier recruiting stories I've ever heard on the first episode of the Isaiah McKenzie Show.
McKenzie was a four-star player coming out of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. in 2014. He committed to Notre Dame as a senior, but his tenure as a Fighting Irish commit was short-lived. The reason why is pretty incredible.
"I got to campus and the coach goes, 'Yeah, we have one rule.' And I didn't know if he was kidding or not," McKenzie said. "He goes, 'For you to be able to come here, there's no sexual intercourse throughout the whole school.' On Monday, I de-committed."
Call me crazy, but doling out information like that to four-stars on their visits doesn't seem like the best recruiting strategy. Those guys are going to Tuscaloosa the following weekend and I can promise you the coaches there are promising quite the opposite experience.
Also, is that even true? You're telling me not a single football player at Notre Dame is having sex? Even if that is the case, that's something that you mention after National Signing Day, not on an unofficial visit.
Regardless, that's certainly the first time I've ever heard of a player de-committing from a school because of a promised lack of action. McKenzie ended up at the University of Georgia, which seems about as far on the opposite end of the cultural spectrum from Notre Dame as you could get.
I don't know how true that story is, but at the very least, there's more to it. There was some sort of incident regarding McKenzie's test scores that possibly also affected his commitment to ND. But McKenzie's version is much cooler.
