Pruitt is entering his senior year for the Bobcats after a spectacular junior season in which he had 99 tackles (15 for loss), two sacks, three forced fumbles, and an interception. The plan is for Pruitt, who currently stands at 6 foot 3 inches and weighs 187 pounds, to add some weight and make the full transition over to the outside linebacker position. He has already played all over the defense throughout his high school career.
While appearing this morning on The Opening Kickoff with Mark Heim and Lee Shirvanian, Pruitt spoke about his Miami commitment, saying it felt like home.
“They had a plan for me already. A three year plan, which I’m trying to do, a great education. They’ve been consistent with talking to me, it felt like I was already on the team,” Pruitt stated.
