WR Sam Pinckney (6-4 205) of Greenwood visited Florida State over the weekend and left Tallahassee with his second major offer. ” It was the best experience I’ve been to so far,” Pinckney said. “They’re definitely competing for the top spot.”Pinckney’s other big-time offer is from USC. Gamecock receivers coach Bryan McClendon scouted Pinckney last season and it didn’t take long for the Gamecocks to offer after that.
“I most definitely really like South Carolina,” he said. “They gave me the offer first. South Carolina is my priority right now. I hear from South Carolina pretty much every day. I hear from Coach Hutzler and he’s telling me that they are really interested in me and they would like me to come visit anytime, like a second home.”
Pinckney has been to USC in the past and he plans to attend the junior day there this Saturday. He also has offers from Georgia State and Appalachian State and has drawn interest from North Carolina, Tennessee, Wake Forest, Louisville and Notre Dame.
Pinckney said he does not plan to make a decision anytime soon and is a possible early graduate.
Last season Pinckney had 72 catches for 1200 yards and 14 touchdowns.
