One player who has seen his stock rise pretty quickly in the last few months is Clovis (Calif.) Buchanan defensive lineman Justin Prueitt. The lineman has taken in several camps and picked up a big scholarship offer earlier this week.
Prueitt, 6-4, 270 pounds was one of the top lineman we saw at the NorCal Nike Camp. He tested very well clocking a 5.27 in the 40, 4.50 in the shuttle, jumped 28 inches in the vertical and did 28 reps on the bench. He also went undefeated in the one on one drills and took more reps than any other player.
Prueitt has since taken in camps at Fresno State, USC and Cal and shown up very well at each.
"Cal just offered today," Dean Prueitt, Justin's father said. "He's real excited, Cal is a great school and Justin likes the idea of staying in California. The only reason he hasn't jumped on it is because USC is telling us they're close to offering as well. Justin did really well at the USC camp and they actually worked him out as an offensive lineman and said that's where they like him. Coach Seto said the staff just wants to see him one more time at their camp June 27 and 28 so he'll be there.
"USC and Cal are the main two schools right now. If USC were to offer, it would be a very tough decision because Justin likes both a lot. I don't think he's leaning towards one or the other right now. If USC doesn't offer though, I think it's safe to say Justin will go ahead and take the offer from Cal by the end of the month."
Prueitt was also offered by Nevada and Sacramento State and was offered a greyshirt by Fresno State following the Bulldogs football camp.
