RB Nyheim Hines of Garner, NC did not make it to USC as he had planned for the Florida game but said he will make it in for the Clemson game this Saturday. Hines went to Tennessee this past weekend and was at Duke before that.
Virginia Tech was the most recent school to offer and that happened last week. He also has offers from USC, Clemson, NC State, North Carolina, East Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest, Tennessee and Connecticut.
Hines said he's in touch with Clemson recruiter Robbie Caldwell and USC assistants Spurrier Jr. and Joe Robinson. Hines said he has not formulated a favorite's list and all the schools which have offered are under consideration. He plans to graduate early and wants to make his commitment around next October.
As for Clemson and USC, Hines said his interest level is high. "I've been a Clemson fan since I was in the second or third grade. I love Clemson. South Carolina, I've been a fan of them too, but you know you can't really be both, so I'm just really neutral."
Never miss a local story.
As for who he's going to root for Saturday...."I don't know. I'm pulling for a good game. If they score 40 points and win by 3, I like that. A high scoring, close game, that's what I'm pulling for. I just want to see a good game from both sides of the offense."
USC and Clemson like Hines as a slot receiver. Hines has rushed for around 2700 yards and has scored 51 touchdowns this season.
