Cory Helms is an offensive lineman at Milton High School (which is in Alpharetta, Georgia) and a highly valued recruiting prospect. Helms touts offers from Cincinnati, Colorado State, East Carolina, Middle Tennessee State, North Carolina, South Florida, Syracuse and Wake Forest according to Rivals.com. He was attending Auburn University’s Big Cat Weekend and tweeted “This place sucks!”. Thank you social media for being able to bring this kind of hilarity to us. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Big Cat Weekend, it is a weekend where coaches try and get around two dozen of their top recruiting prospects on campus. Most schools use some variation of this recruiting tactic. The recruits get to know each other and also bond with the coaches. They get to experience the weekend campus life as well.
War Damn Eagle!
Update: Cory Helms has since deleted the original tweet and clarified that his visit just started out shaky in a subsequent tweet. He also retweeted a Bama fan (@bama_man_judd) who really liked his anti-Auburn tweet that contained a #RollTide in it.
