Whale Branch High School defensive tackle Nyles Pinckney — who is 6’3” and weights 290 lbs and is one of the nation’s top high school football players — has picked up an offer from the University of Alabama.
Clemson, University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, University of Florida, Florida State, University of Miami, University of North Carolina and University of South Carolina have also sent offers to Pinckney.
He is among of the nation’s top 100 prospects for the Class of 2016, according to Rivals.com.
Currently, Alabama is ranked first in the nation. With last Saturday’s 48-14 win over Western Carolina, Alabama reached the 10-win milestone for the seventh consecutive season. In 119 seasons, the Tide has won 10 or more games 34 times, one back of Oklahoma (35) for the most 10-win seasons in college football history.
Pinckney has not set a time frame as to when he will announce his college decision.
