Former Auburn RB Says A Tow Truck Has Been Called For Nick Saban's Helicopter Parked On High School Field

Nick Saban flew in on a helicopter to recruit players at Grayson High School in Georgia, and a former Auburn running back isn't impressed.

Grayson High School in Loganville is absolutely stacked this year. According to 247Sports, three of the top 25 2017 recruits in Georgia (and 11 of the ranked players) play for the school. Naturally, Nick Saban is recruiting the school hard, and made a big impression today, landing his helicopter on the 50-yard line of the Grayson football field.

Former Auburn running back Brad Lester lives in the area, where he currently works as a trainer, and he grabbed a picture of Saban's chopper. He also said that a tow truck has been called, although we're going to assume he's kidding.

Saban having his helicopter towed away would be a very quick way to have any Grayson-to-Alabama pipeline cut off. Alabama does not have any current commits from Grayson. Safety Deangelo Gibbs, tackle Tony Gray Jr., and linebacker Breon Dixon are the school's top uncommitted players. All reportedly hold Alabama scholarship offers. Update: Unfortunately for the schadenfreude-wishing Auburn fans out there, Saban made his escape according to Lester.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Alabama came out on top in a recruiting matter.
