T.L. Hanna’s Zacch Pickens, a five-star defensive end, told his head coach Jeff Herron just before Friday evening’s spring game that he intended to announce his college plans immediately after the contest, much to the surprise of his coach.
And that’s what he did, revealing his commitment to South Carolina.
Pickens stand 6-41/2 and is listed at 268 pounds.
Emerald’s Luke Deal had a coordinated announcement in Greenwood and the tight end who had 18 major offers picks Auburn ahead of schools like Clemson, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.
Deal is rated as a three-star and also plays defensive line and has played some quarterback in high school as well.
