Before Ryan Hilinski finished his last South Carolina recruiting visit, he’d already started to make plans for his next stop in Columbia.
Hilinski, a 4-star quarterback who committed to the Gamecocks earlier this month, will be back in town this weekend for his official visit.
“[Quarterbacks] coach [Dan] Werner had mentioned it while I was at the spring game, and we both thought it would be best to come this weekend to recruit,” Hilinski said.
South Carolina will welcome Hilinski and his family on Friday. For the last several days, he’s done some homework to familiarize himself with the prospects who will also be on campus.
“I coordinated with the coaches and figured out a lot,” Hilinski said.
Like Hilinski, 2019 3-star center commitVincent Murphy (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) will be on campus this weekend as an official visitor.
Below is a list of the confirmed guests for the next South Carolina recruiting weekend:
- 2019 5-star DE Zacch Pickens (Anderson, S.C.)
- 2020 4-star DE Jordan Burch (Columbia, S.C.)
- 2020 4-star DT Alex Huntley (Columbia, S.C.)
- 2019 3-star LB Derek Boykins (Concord, N.C.)
- 2019 3-star T Jaylen Nichols (Charlotte, N.C.) committed
- 2020 4-star S Cameron Roseman-Sinclair (Charlotte, N.C.)
