Hamsah Nasirildeen, the highest rated 2017 visitor at day one of the Will Muschamp Football Camp, received some 1-on-1 instruction from South Carolina’s first-year head coach.
Muschamp pulled the 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect from Concord, NC, aside during individual position work and put him through drills for about 10 minutes.
“(Muschamp) helped me a lot with my footwork, coming in and out of breaks,” Nasirildeen said. “He also gave me a lot to improve on.”
South Carolina occupies a spot in Nasirildeen’s lead group, alongside Alabama, Florida, Clemson and Florida State.
The attention he received from Muschamp during Saturday’s camp didn’t go unnoticed.
“It means a lot to see the true interest that he has in me,” Nasirildeen said.
Listed as the No. 14 outside linebacker in the country, Nasirildeen is on the Gamecocks’ board as a safety. The four-star prospect had 80 tackles, four interceptions and five pass breakups as a junior. On the offensive side of the ball, he caught 33 passes for 584 yards and two touchdowns.
