2022 TE Jack Nickel of Alpharetta, GA has the makings of being one of the top tight end recruits nationally in his class. His earliest offers came from Florida State, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Purdue, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech, You can add USC to that group. Nickel visited USC last weekend along with teammate Jordan McDonald, who also landed a Gamecock offer on the visit.
“I really enjoyed my visit,” Nickel said. “The facilities were probably the nicest I’ve seen. Coach (Bobby) Bentley told me he liked how I’m a versatile tight end. He said it’s impressive how I can be a receiving and blocking threat only as a sophomore. I love how South Carolina uses their tight ends and it’s a beautiful campus, so I was very excited “
Nickel also has visited Georgia, Penn State, Notre Dame and Florida State. He plans to visit Georgia Tech soon and might return to Columbia for the Clemson game. There are no favorites at this point.
