“It was a home run,” Pruitt informed Dudley Dawson at Scout affiliate HawgsIllustrated.com. “It was really good. I liked everything about it – the coaches, the players, the facilities. The people of Fayetteville are just really nice and it's just a great college atmosphere.”
Pruitt held around 20 offers total with schools like Alabama, Baylor, Florida, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas and Texas Tech all stepping up.
He is rated as a Scout.com 4-star prospect, the No. 18 OT nationally.
Scout Eval- Physically, he is exactly what you want to see. A strong, raw prospect on the offensive line. He is extremely athletic and has the frame and length to be a true tackle. Has quick feet that also allow him to stand out and make some plays on the defensive side of the ball. Has work to do fundamentally in a few areas of his game, but plays hard and to the whistle. Is good at sealing the edge, but will get better with improvements in his technique.
