DT Nyles Pinckney Profile
Nyles Pinckney returned to Tigertown for the second session of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"It was good. It was a good experience. I talked to coach Swinney. I talked with some players," Pinckney told CUTigers in a recent interview.
It was the first meeting between the head coach and elite prospect from Whale Branch High School in Seabrook.
"I told him my name and where I was from. He said he'd heard of me. He said it was good to hear my name," Pinckney said.
Working with Dan Brooks was also a plus. Pinckney said there were plenty of things he'll be able to apply to his game back home.
"I learned a lot of stuff and taught myself I can work on in the upcoming season, which can help me do better than I did last year," he said. "I also learned some leadership skills there, which will help me lead my team this year."
As a freshman, Pinckney wasn't too bad. He had 91 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 10 sacks.
Those numbers, plus his performance in Chapel Hill, earned him a second offer -- North Carolina.
He's also camped at Georgia and South Carolina.
