Unfortunately for UGA and other schools, the recent commitment of the state’s No. 2 prospect to Ohio State appears to be a firm one.
Isaiah Pryor, a 4-star safety from Archer High School, told the AJC on Friday that it’s unlikely he’ll be wavering on his engagement.
“It was a solid commitment,” said Pryor, one of the top prospects in the class of 2017. “I visited there a lot of times. I felt very comfortable with the campus, talking with the coaches. I met with the players. I felt like it was a solid decision.”
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound safety committed to the Buckeyes at the end of July. He also held offers from UGA, Oklahoma and Notre Dame, among others. Pryor acknowledges that he’s still being heavily recruited by a majority of his suitors, and that includes the Bulldogs.
“(Coach Mark Richt) still wants to recruit me even after the commitment,” Pryor said.
But how close is he with the UGA coaching staff? Pryor referenced Bulldogs defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
“I’ve always liked Coach Pruitt,” Pryor said. “I think he’s a good coach. I just haven’t had the type of relationship with him that I’ve had with Ohio State.”
Pryor tells the AJC that he doesn’t have any set plans for the fall. However, there is one Pac-12 school he’d like to visit — Oregon.
“I’ve pretty much been all over the country,” Pryor said. “My Dad did a pretty good job of that taking me to all these colleges and whatnot. That’s the only place I haven’t been.”
