Laremt Tunsil is the top offensive tackle recruit in the country. Out of Lake City (Fla.) Columbia High School, the 6'6", 280 pound Tunsil holds offers from most of the top schools. He's in no rush to make a decision, but did speak about some of the factors that will ultimately sway him in this excellent interview ($) with Florida Rivals site Inside The Gators.
One particular point that caught my eye was the discussion about his relationship with coaches:
"The relationship I have with the coaches is the most important thing," said Tunsil. "My position coach is who I am going to be with every day. I have to have a great relationship and be able to trust him.
Asked about the coaches he feels most comfortable with, Tunsil replied, "The two head coaches I have a relationship with are Nick Saban and Will Muschamp. They aren't personally recruiting me, but I can call them up and talk to them. I called coach Saban a couple of weeks ago to talk.
"Position coaches I have a good relationship with are Will Friend from Georgia, Tim Davis from Florida, Chris Kiffin from Ole Miss and especially Rick Trickett from Florida State."
Tunsil goes on to talk about a lot of different topics, and this is definitely worth a read. I hadn't heard Ole Miss mentioned by Tunsil all that much, so that is a new development indeed. Many continue to believe that Florida and Georgia are the top two schools competing for his services. This belief is supported by the frequency with which Tunsil mentions the Bulldogs and Gators in his talks with the media.
