Alabama head coach Nick Saban visited one of his top commits in style Wednesday.
Saban and offensive line coach Brent Key went to Jacksonville, Fla., to visit 4-star quarterback commit Mac Jones at his school. But they didn’t arrive in a car. They took a helicopter.
Jones tweeted out a video of the Saban-copter landing on the athletic fields at The Bolles School.

Saban isn’t the only head coach who uses a chopper to save time (and make dramatic entrances) on recruiting trips.
Texas A&M’s kevin Sumlin is known for the “Swagcopter.” Other coaches to use helicopters include former Florida defensive coordinator and new Temple head coach Geoff Collins, TCU’s Gary Patterson and SMU’s Chad Morris.
