Pinion Enjoys Second Trip to Clemson


6-4, 210 pound kicker/punter Bradley Pinion visited Clemson on Saturday where he watched the Tigers battle the Heels.

“It went really well.  My come came down with me.  We made it down around 11:15,” said Pinion.

How did he enjoy the game?

“The game was really fun.  It was a great atmosphere.  It was really loud.  I can only imagine how loud it is there for a football game,” replied Pinion.

The Northwest Cabarrus standout visited Clemson for the second time in a couple of weeks.

“It was my second visit.  I made it down for the end of the junior day a few weeks ago,” said Pinion.

The first offer has not arrived yet, but interest is high from a number of schools.

“I don’t have any offers yet.  I am hearing from Clemson, Georgia, South Carolina, East Carolina, Duke, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech,” said Pinion.

When asked about his current favorites, Pinion responded, “It would be South Carolina, Clemson and Georgia in no particular order”.

How did Bradley do during his junior season?

“Last year my long was 42 yards.  I went 7-12.  I didn’t have the best season, but will get back after it this year.  I averaged 68 yards on kickoffs and 31 yards on punts,” replied Pinion.

Last summer Bradley camped at several schools.

“Last year I went to camps at Georgia, Virginia Tech, Georgia Tech and North Carolina.  I am not really interested in North Carolina.  I grew up a Duke basketball fan.  So I have always been an ABC (Anybody But Carolina) fan,” said Pinion.

Bradley will be back in Tigertown in a few weeks.

“I am going back down to Clemson on March 5 and to their kicking camp on June 14,” said Pinion.

This weekend the visit tour continues with two ACC schools on tap.

“Next weekend I am going to junior day at Duke and hopefully stopping by Wake Forest on the way back,” said Pinion.
