Pratt still considering Colorado State

Colorado State remains in the sweepstakes for Naples, Fla. running back Greg Pratt. The 5-foot-8, 164-pound speedster (4.4 in the 40) is beginning to set official visits and, while he hasn't scheduled a trip to Fort Collins, he says he is considering it.

According to Pratt, he has scholarship offers from Illinois, Cincinnati, Indiana, N.C. State, Pitt, Liberty, Colorado State, Middle Tennessee State and Troy. Pratt has already visited Liberty College (his coach's alma mater) and enjoyed his stay. He is also planning in visiting Troy on Jan. 9 and is setting something up with Purdue and Pitt. While Colorado State isn't in that list, he said it isn't because they are out of the running for the Florida back.

"They are in my top four, but me and my friend are thinking about going to Colorado State together and we are trying to find the right day," Pratt said.

Pratt is thinking about coming to Colorado with Juno Prudhomm, a 6-foot, 205 pound quarterback, also from Naples High School. The Golden Eagles were recently knocked out of the state football playoffs in the third round last week. Pratt ran for 1,040 yards and 13 scores this season, averaging 8.3 yards along the way. Pratt also led Naples in receiving, picking up 17 catches for 277 yards.

Prudhomm ended his season with 63 completions in 123 attempts for 1,111 yards. He threw for 13 touchdowns and just five interceptions. he also ran for 802 yards and 5.9 yards per carry. Another teammate, Carlos Hyde is committed to Ohio State after running for 1,647 yards and 10.8 per carry.

"We always talk about recruiting stuff and he wants to know where I am going," Pratt said.

Last weekend Pratt welcomed in Colorado State assistant coach Marc Lubick to his school.

""The Colorado State coach came to my school about two weeks ago. He was telling me about the depth chart and what they do up there," Pratt said. "He was telling me their running back is leaving and I would have a good chance of going up there and playing if I practice hard. I could play a bunch of positions."

For now, Pratt doesn't have any idea when he will commit or to where, but it sounds like he will do so once he gets through with all of his visits.
