Whale Branch Early College High School in Seabrook has produced the first major college football prospect in its young history.
DL Nyles Pinckney (6-3 280) has offers from Clemson, USC, Florida State, Florida, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Miami and Georgia. He’s also drawing interest from Tennessee, Alabama and Virginia Tech.
“I don’t have any favorites right now, I’m looking at all my options and see what else I may get,” Pinckney said.
Pinckney has not been to any games this season but he plans to go to North Carolina October 4th and the USC at Clemson game. He went to games at USC and Clemson last season.
Academics will be a major factor for Pinckney in his decision and he wants to major in business.
Last season Pinckney had 96 tackles, 26 for loss, and 8 sacks.
“He’s a dominant player,” said his coach Jerry Hatcher. “You can’t single block him. He’s exceptionally quick. And he’s a competitor. He hates losing with a passion.”
