Walhalla kicker Patrick Nations visited South Carolina on Saturday and the Gamecocks are his favorite at this point.
“The visit went very good,” Nations said. “I love it down there. The coaching staff is very loving and accepting and they want you to be apart of their family and I love that. They asked me to come back for the spring game so I’ll be down there for that, and then I’ll be going to their specialists camp June 16th. They are coming at me the hardest right now. They’ve told me that they really like me and that they are waiting to see how the numbers play out to see if they have a scholarship to give to a specialist.”
Last season Nations (5-foot-11, 185 pounds) connected on 9-of-14 field goals with a long of 44, and made 39-of-41 PATs.
