The South Carolina Gamecocks Coaching Staff used the final week before the Early Signing Period to check in on the crown jewel of their 2019 Class, quarterback Ryan Hilinski of Orange, California.
Hilinski, who already signed financial aid paperwork with South Carolina in November, will officially put pen to paper on December 19th while in Mexico for the World Bowl All-Star Game put on by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Gamecocks Head Coach Will Muschamp, Offensive Coordinator Bryan McClendon, and Quarterbacks Coach Dan Werner visited Hilinski on Monday, and Hilinski said Werner provided him with a basic early installation package of the South Carolina to memorize in anticipation of his January 7th move-in date.
Hilinski says in addition to the trip to Mexico, he will also play in the US Army All-American Game, where he’s hoping to spend a lot of time with Gamecocks DB target Chris Steele of Bellflower, CA. Hilinski said he will work out with Steele this week, and is hoping to sway the former Southern California commit away from his other finalist, the Florida Gators.
