DT Nyles Pinckney Profile
Whale Branch High School [Beaufort] sophomore Nyles Pinckney picked up his Clemson offer while in town last April for the Orange and White spring game. He returned last month for the 2013 season opener against Georgia.
"It was a good experience. I liked how the crowd was into the game and how much the fans support the team," Pinckney recently told CUTigers.
The Georgia game was the first time he'd been to Tigertown for a game day during the fall.
"I heard that Clemson has a good fan base, but I didn't expect it to be like that. I really liked how the fans were into the game the whole game," Pinckney said.
As a freshman, he had 91 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. He's also added offers from UNC and Georgia Tech.
During his most recent trip to Clemson, he spoke with defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks and area recruiter Tony Elliott.
"They asked me how my season was going and got my information and stuff like that," Pinckney said. "They asked what I thought of the game. I thought the game was great. I thought Clemson competed til the end."
He was in Clemson for three days in June for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"I know I'm going to Clemson for two more games, for The Citadel and for Florida State. I'm going to visit Georgia Tech and North Carolina for some games."
