Gamecocks Football: Kyle Nunn Makes Choice to Play

Redshirt senior Kyle Nunn has decided to play in South Carolina’s bowl game on January 2nd against Nebraska.  This will likely be his final football game in the garnet and black. 

If you recall, the Sumter, S.C. native last played in the fourth game of the season against Vanderbilt.  Soon after this game, it was reported that he had suffered a back injury that required sugery and this resulted in him not playing the rest of the season. 

Nunn was strongly considering pursuing a medical redshirt year and come back for a sixth year but it began to become more and more clear that obtaining that medical redshirt was going to be difficult given his circumstances.  The reason his he had volunteered to take a redshirt his first year on campus so getting another year but be out of the norm from the NCAA.

Good luck to Kyle Nunn as he will be playing his final game on Jan. 2nd in the Capital One Bowl, which is a great way to conclude his career.  This was the right choice for Nunn given the decision he had to make.
