Maybe you missed this last week, but Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson got into it with 680 The Fan midday host Matt Chernoff over Johnson's "policy" on what a commitment means in the world of football recruiting.
The center of the argument is whether Johnson's "No visit policy" after a commitment to his program is hypocritical since the Yellow Jacket head coach continues to recruit players after they commit elsewhere. Johnson says he does not view a player as "committed" if they are taking visits whether that be to Tech or elsewhere.
As far as players committed to Ga. Tech taking visits elsewhere, Johnson says he does not have a problem with that but he tells that player that Tech is not committed to them anymore either. Tech will continue to recruit other players for that spot just like the original player is allowing himself to still be recruited.
Johnson says his main issue is with commitments taking visits elsewhere on the weekend before National Signing Day leaving him no time for a replacement as Tre Jackson did this past year and Dontae Aycock in 2008.
After Johnson and host Matt Chernoff are done arguing, Chuck Oliver does a nice job to rescue the interview by steering the conversation back to actual football.
Do you think Paul Johnson's "policy" is hypocritical or not?
