The Arizona Wildcats flexed their recruiting muscle when they landed one of the best prospects in Northern California earlier this evening.
The Cats picked up four-star linebacker Terrance Pritchett (6-3, 205, 4.6) from powerhouse Sacramento (Calif.) Grant.
"Committing something I was thinking about a lot and I called Coach Tim Kish," Pritchett said. "While I was talking to Coach Kish, I was thinking what am I waiting for? So I decided to do commit to them."
"The first thing I like about Arizona is out of all the schools that showed interest in me they offered first," Pritchett said. "Arizona knew how hard I worked on and off the field."
"I also developed a great relationship with Coach Kish," Pritchett said. "He told me how Arizona is like and how it was going to be.
"I told him (Kish) that I wanted to compete and that I didn't want anything given to me," Pritchett said. "He assured me that wouldn't be the case."
"I also told Coach Kish that I wanted to be academically challenged," Pritchett said. "I want to major in civil engineering. I'm bulking up on my math.
"I would have liked to hear more from UCLA," Pritchett said. "It's all good now, I'm a Wildcat."
The Cats get a player who earned all-metro honors after accounting for 135 tackles and nine sacks. He also had six receptions for 165 yards as a tight end as a junior.
Landing Pritchett is a big get for the Cats. He's the kind of player that the Wildcats lived during their glory years.
