Pinckney Likes Gamecocks

Four-star defensive tackle Nyles Pinckney from Seabrook, S.C. attended South Carolina's camp last weekend and notes they may be a front-runner.

A class of 2016 stand-out at the camp, this DT is ranked 25th in his position and a Scout 255 overall.

The S.C.-native was the 'talk-of-the-town' this past weekend at the camp in Columbia. Working with coach Everette Sands, the 6-foot-2, 275 Pinckney received an offer this past spring from USC.

Although not quite ready to name a top five just yet, the Whale Branch EC High School junior does say he favors South Carolina because of its proximity to home.

The Palmetto-State gem will be one to watch in the coming weeks because he noted he should have a top by the end of his junior year.

Pinckney has several scholarhship offers from other schools, including Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and North Carolina. will keep you updated on the latest with Pinckney.
