2021 TE Bryson Nesbit (6-6 220) of Charlotte took in his first USC game of the season last weekend when the Gamecocks battled Florida in the rain at Williams-Brice Stadium. Nesbit is the son of former Gamecock and NFL offensive lineman Jamar Nesbit. The Gamecocks were one of his early offers and wanted to use the atmosphere of an SEC big game to show him how the program is progressing under Will Muschamp.
“It was a great visit, hospitality was great, great talk with Coach (Bobby) Bentley, and it was a great game despite the cold and rain,” Nesbit said. “He (Bentley) was happy to finally get me out there. We talked about where I stand with the other recruits and how South Carolina would be a great fit for me.” Nesbit said he did not get the chance to talk to Muschamp on this visit.
He did take a close look at the tight ends and how Bentley uses them in the offensive scheme.
“I noticed how at least one or two tight ends were in at all times,” Nesbit said. “I enjoyed seeing how they changed it up by flexing them out sometimes, and motioning them across the formation other times.”
It’s early in the recruiting process for Nesbit who also has offers from Duke, NC State, Florida, Virginia, Louisville, North Carolina, LSU and Maryland. And he’s also getting interest from Clemson which he visited for the Florida State game. The visit to USC certainly helped the Gamecocks standing.
“I’m definitely liking the school especially because I have ties to the school,” Nesbit said.
He will visit North Carolina this Saturday.
