Pinkney names top two

One of the top pure athletes in North Carolina, schools are looking hard at Patrick Pinkney.

Pine Forest (NC) athlete Patrick Pinkney has several choices as to a position, but is still awaiting his first offer. His top two schools, he says are obvious.

"Florida State, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, North Carolina, and Virginia are my top five," says the 6-foot-1, 190 pounder. "Florida State is my favorite. The atmosphere there is great, and they have really good coaches. They were very respectful when I was there for a camp a couple of years ago, plus I have liked them since I was a kid.

"NC State is number two with their coaches, too. Coach Amato is building something special with all the great athletes they have there."

Also a great athlete, Pinkney is looking for several aspects in his choice of a school.

"First they need what I want to major in, which is business. I also want the coaches behind me in playing sports and in school, and I want to just meet new people that I like."

Pinkney is starting his travels soon as he leaves Thursday for California, and the first of what could be many quarterback camps
