Bingham Makes His Choice

It didn't take long for 2017 Hutchinson LB/DE Ronheen Bingham (6-2, 220) to decide where he wants to play the next the next two years and over the weekend, while on an official visit, he decided to commit to Coastal Carolina...

"I've just committed to Coastal Carolina," an excited Bingham told "I just felt like it was a great move for me academic-wise and athletic-wise. I felt like It was a great family and very great program and I can focus on finishing up my academics at Hutch and not have to worry about where I'm headed next."

Needless to say, the Coastal Carolina coaches were very excited to get a player who finished his freshman season with 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks and 6.5 tackles-for-loss.

"They were so excited to have me commit to them the reaction was priceless," Bingham noted.

Bingham chose the Chanticleers over offers from Arkansas StateColorado and Charlotte.

"I'm very explosive coming off the edge," Bingham noted. "I can counter off of what the offensive line is doing off of either my assignment or my reaction which allows me to get to the quaterback at times before he even gets the snap."

This offseason, Bingham has been hard at work perfecting his craft, spending a lot of time focusing on his technique and putting in time in the weight room.

"I'm always working on getting faster and stronger," Bingham said. "I want to be able to rush the quarterback with wide receiver speed and over-power the offensive linemen to stop the run game."

As a prep at Marlboro County High School in Bennettsville, South Carolina, Bingham was drawing the attention of several schools, but he was unable to get qualified, so he decided to take the JUCO route and Hutchinson seemed like the best opportunity.

"I wasn't a qualifier out of high school and it was a great opportunity to get my grades to where they needed to be and also to be apart of a great program."

Bingham is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2015 football season.
