Pinion Commits to Clemson


Tuesday night Northwest Cabarrus kicker Bradley Pinion ended his recruitment and gave a verbal commitment to the Clemson Tigers.

“I committed to Clemson.  I called coach Swinney and asked how his day was going. He said his day was going good.  I told him I was about to make his day a whole lot better and told him I was coming to Clemson,” said Pinion.

What was coach Swinney’s reaction?

“He was yelling,” said Pinion.

Why did Bradley decide to pull the trigger tonight on the commitment?

“It just felt right. I had dinner with my kicking coach tonight.  We discussed the decision and he could tell by the way I was talking about Clemson that I wanted to go to Clemson. He said dude you want to go Clemson so just call them. I picked up the phone and called coach Swinney,” said Pinion.

Don’t expect any changes in Bradley’s commitment to the Tigers.

“I am going to Clemson.  I am a Tiger.  I am not going to decommit.  I will be at Clemson,” said Pinion.

The top kicker becomes the eighth commitment for the Tiger’s 2012 class.
