Bacot was seen on the set in Charleston, South Carolina with stars Chase Stokes and Rudy Pankow, who plays JJ Maybanks on the show. The breakout North Carolina center will reportedly appear in a few episodes as a character named "Mando", according to Inside Carolina, but he was doesn't have permission to share many details about his role.

On Wednesday, Bacot also shared a photo on his Instagram story Stokes and Pankow for the third season of the teen drama.
