"It is hard to tell a coach from a university, 'I don't want to take your scholarship,' " said Georgia signee Vince Vance, who had to say as much to none other than Steve Spurrier. "It is kind of awkward to say that."
Ask for help if you must. Twiggs County All-American Chris Little suggests consulting your high school coach for assistance with the wording.
Little's simple, to-the-point message: "Thanks, but no thanks. It's not the place for me."
"It's better to tell them so you're not wasting their time and they can move on," Little said.
