Well, this was a novel idea.
Superstar outside linebacker recruit Quart’e Sapp, of Georgia powerhouse Milton, decided that he wanted to showcase all the attention he’s been receiving from colleges across the country, so he figured he would show the sheer volume of mail he receives in a novel new way: He’d take a bath in it.
As you can see in the tweet sent from Sapp’s account, above, the senior filled up his bathtub with mail, posted a few extra letters on the walls around the tub and then hopped in. The mail completely covered him up (minus the head and face, of course).
The stunt was intended to be a prelude to Sapp’s announcement of his five “finalists.” We have absolutely no inside information to go on, but he does appear to be showcasing multiple letters from Miami, Missouri, Tennessee and Baylor (that stack of white letters layered on top of each other on the lower left side all say “Sic ‘Em” for “Sic ‘Em Bears”). Whether any or all of those schools are part of his final list remains to be seen.
If not, maybe he can turn the water on next time he’s taking a bath with letters from the also rans. No need to preserve that history, and he might as well get clean while he’s in there.
