J.R. Pinnock, Coastal Christian's 6-5, 200 pound swingman from in Virginia Beach, Va., put his skills on display recently for many coaches at the War at the Shore event in Delaware.
Pinnock is certainly a high major athlete, and the 6-4 swingman from Georgia has attracted significant Division I looks with his recent decision to sign late.
Earlier this fall, Pinnock had committed to Wichita State but later reneged. While his three point shot wasn't falling consistently at the War on the Shore, Pinnock showed great elevation and the ability to finish acrobatically around the basket. His senior campaign at Coastal Christian will go a long way in determining where Pinnock winds up next fall.
Coastal Christian Head Coach Walt Webb told RivalsHoops.com: "He did verbally commit to Wichita State, but it didn't go over as well as he planned. He sat down after he came back and realized that he was a bit anxious in telling them that he wanted to go, and he didn't visit anywhere else, so he wanted to make sure he was making the right decision. He made that decision without really conferring with his parents. His parents are hoping that he'll explore other options closer to home if possible."
Georgia State, Stanford and Wyoming have expressed interest in Pinnock. Wichita State has backed out now that Pinnock has decided not to sign.
