Evan Pryor: UGA is a big contender after latest unofficial from the elite junior RB

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. The play here offers a good unofficial visit recap with elite North Carolina junior RB Evan Pryor

Evan Pryor has now taken at least four visits to UGA. That’s enough to know a few things for certain about how snug his potential fit might be in the Georgia backfield.

It goes further than making sure he tries on a white jersey next time to be sure he hits for the cycle on Bulldog photo shoots. He’s already checked off the red and black togs.

The William Amos Hough High School rising senior (Cornelius, NC) lives only about a 3.5 hour trip down I-85 from Athens. He has not made an official cutdown yet, but that is pending.

“I’m down to about five or six schools,” he said. “I will just pick five out of those five or six schools, take my officials and hopefully be done with this thing by July.”

The potential is certainly there for the nation’s no. 6 RB (247Sports Composite ratings) to not use an official for another trip to Athens. That distance is manageable. But one takeaway from his most recent unofficial visit this weekend will render those logistics moot.

He will include the Bulldogs as one of his five officials. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound RB sounds about as confident in that as he is in the kitchen at breakfast time.

Pryor knows Athens is close. He could pass on using an official to see Georgia.

“Right but I will,” he said. “Because I’ve really gotten in good and been able to chop it up with the players and the other recruits like that. I feel like it will be a good chance to kind of pick the player’s brain to really see how the university is and things like that.”

Evan Pryor: How he feels about the new wrinkles 

The chief reason behind his latest visit was necessary to get a good gauge of new Georgia offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

“Being able to sit down and watch film with coach [Todd] Monken was great,” Pryor said. “I got to see how he does things and see how things will look for UGA this year.”

He expanded on that “how things will look” topic.

“It is very good,” Pryor said. “It is professional. Like from talking to coach Monken, his offense is what football is turning in to be. Using the back in space. Using the back out of the backfield and also still handing the ball off. I like it a lot. I think it is great.”

Pryor has track speed. His online profile lists a best time of 10.82 seconds in the 100 meters last spring.

He’s a shifty back that measured in at 5.9.5 and 190 pounds at his Opening regional showing in April of 2019.

He will be a three down back in the college game. Clearly. That’s something that is not brought up a lot on the DawgNation message board forum in regard to his game.

He topped the 1,000-yard mark last fall as a junior, but there’s more to his skill set than that.

He also had 38 catches for 646 yards and and eight touchdowns in the passing game.

Those totals averaged out to 17 yards per catch. All told, it means he was good for an average of 130 all-purpose yards per game last fall. Amos Hough finished last season with an 8-5 record.
