Junior DL Nyles Pinckney of Whale Branch plans to visit two of his favorites over the next two weekends. Pinckney was to be at USC Saturday for the South Alabama and he likewise plans to visit Clemson next weekend for the USC showdown. Pinckney talked with USC recruiters Everette Sands and Deke Adams last week.
“They just told me how much they really liked me and how much they want me to go there, and how much of a great opportunity it is for me,” Pinckney said.
He also was in contact with Clemson recruiter Tony Elliott last week. “He told me how they have senior defensive linemen and how I would have a great opportunity to play.”
Pinckney said he doesn’t have a lean between the Gamecocks and Tigers at this point and is looking forward to getting back to both places.
“I just like to see the competitive nature of the players and coaches and the atmosphere,” he said. He’s been to each three times over the years. His parents will go with him on the visits.
Pinckney, who is considering graduating early, said he’s hearing the most from USC, Clemson, Florida State and North Carolina.
