GT running back Tashard Choice and Vikings running back Adrian Peterson are tight. Choice backed up Peterson while at Oklahoma to start his college career before leaving for GT.
Choice did not sit out when the transferred from OU to GT after petitioning the NCAA not to sit out because of family issues. His three brothers have been in and out of trouble.
Choice said Peterson has visited his apartment in Georgia. Choice said Peterson called him today but they hadn't had a chance to talk. He still calls him one of his teammates and ''homeboys.''
