Welcome To the U: Michael Pinckney

After the Al Golden Football Camp on Saturday, the Canes started rebuilding their 2016 class by gaining the commitment of LB Michael Pinckney

After a week off, the Al Golden Football Camp was back in full effect today. And, after camp, the recruiting benefits were quickly seen.

After losing both 2016 commitments a fortnight ago (Walton reclassified to 2015, and Gardner flipped), Al Golden and company are right back in the game by adding LB Michael Pinckney from Jacksonville Raines.

Raines is a traditionally strong school, and adding Pinckney, who figures to see his recruiting profile rise throughout his Junior and Senior years, is a positive. Pinckney is definitely talented, which you can easily see in the video below.

Overall, this is a good take, and a positive for the Canes as we look to build momentum both in the 2015 and 2016 classes.

And, of course....

WELCOME TO THE U, MICHAEL
