Sugiura: New UNC coach Mack Brown on his return, Georgia Tech, recruiting Atlanta
Brown coached against the Yellow Jackets each of his 10 years at North Carolina (1988-97) and left for Texas with a 6-3-1 record against Tech. (The Yellow Jackets’ 13-13 tie with the Tar Heels in 1990 likely was all that separated Tech from an undisputed national championship.)
Brown and Collins’ staffs already have squared off on the recruiting trail in the state of Georgia. North Carolina has received commitments from three in-state players in the class of 2020 that Tech has also offered – wide receiver Josh Downs from North Gwinnett High and offensive tackle Trey Zimmerman and tight end John Copenhaver, both from Roswell High.
