Greenwood WR Sam Pinckney took a visit to LSU last Saturday where he checked out the school, the town and met with coach Ed Orgeron. And he returned to South Carolina with more than a bag of crawfish. He also brought back an offer.
“I like Coach O,” Pinckney said. “The facilities are really nice. It’s a different experience being from South Carolina and going down. It’s more Southern.”
Pinckney also has visited USC, Florida State and North Carolina and he’s planning to visit Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech.
He’s also planning to attend USC’s spring game. Pinckney said he gets regular contact from the Gamecocks and talks with recruiter Coleman Hutzler.
“They are really interested,” he said. “He said just to keep in touch and I can visit anytime.”
Pinckney said his top three right now, in no order, are USC, Florida State and LSU. All have offered. Pinckney said he’ll make his decision during his senior season or just after it. He has not decided if he will enroll early.
