Class of 2016 Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek three-star offensive guard Chandler Tuitt already has offers from four Big Five schools, but for the most part his recruitment is still in it's infancy. But that's not for lack of effort from college coaches.
"I need to call all my coaches because I haven't been doing a good job of keeping in touch right now," said Tuitt, who lists offers from Ole Miss, Ohio State, North Carolina and South Carolilna. "Because they haven't been able to call me it's on me to call them."
Tuitt had numerous camp and unofficial visit invitations this summer, but said his training and family obligations kept him from taking any football related trips.
"I've just been busy working on getting better and spending time with my family," he said. "I'm trying to take trips during the season on the weekends. A lot of schools want me to come visit."
While Tuitt has given the cold shoulder to coaches in pursuit, one school hasn't let his tactics deter their pursuit.
"Ole Miss is probably talking to me the most," Tuitt said. "They hit me up on social media and we talk back and forfth."
The Rebels have done an excellent job of recruiting Sandy Creek in recent years, including in the Class of 2015, where Rivals100 running back Eric Swinney is already a commit.
"I really don't know what it is but they like guys from my school," Tuitt said. "For me, I like them because that's where my mom grew up so we spend a lot of time there hunting, four-wheeling, stuff like that, so I've spent a lot of time there."
He added that a trip to Oxford is on his list for the fall, when he hopes to take several other trips.
"I really want to get out there to see a game," Tuitt said of Ole Miss "Honestly I just want to see all of them because I haven't been out yet and I really don't know what I like and what I don't like so I need to go see some schools."
