FOUR-STAR DEFENSIVE LINEMAN COMMITS TO TIGERS

|| By FITSNEWS || Clemson University’s football program scored another recruiting coup this week when four-star defensive line prospect Nyles Pinckney signed a financial aid agreement with the school.

He plans to enroll at Clemson in January 2016.

A 6-foot-3, 285-pound defensive end, Pinckney had scholarship offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami and South Carolina, among other schools.  He’s the second big-name defensive lineman to announce his intention to play for the Tigers this summer – joining 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end Xavier Kelly.

A senior at Whale Branch High School in Seabrook, S.C., Pinckney recorded 98 tackles in 2014 – including 27 tackles for loss and nine sacks.  He also blocked three field goals, caused ten fumbles and recovered eight fumbles.

Clemson has enjoyed tremendous recruiting success under head coach Dabo Swinney – whose squad enters the 2015 season ranked No. 12 in the nation.
