Sacramento (Calif.) Grant four-star and Rivals250 linebacker Terrance Pritchett said he was a solid commitment to Arizona after taking an official visit to Tucson, Ariz., back on Oct. 20.
However, there has been a dramatic change in that stance and now it looks like he's heading to another Pac 10 school instead.
Pritchett, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound four-star outside linebacker, confirmed he took an official visit to Oregon this weekend and it looks like he's had a change of heart.
"It's not a rumor," Pritchett said Wednesday afternoon when asked if he did take an official visit to Eugene. "I did visit Oregon last weekend."
Pritchett said he's now made a decision to back away from his Wildcat commitment and instead tell the Duck coaches that he's heading to Oregon.
"I have switched," Pritchett said. "I have talked to the people that I had to talk to, to make it official."
Pritchett's pledge to Arizona has been shaky for quite some time. When he committed to the Wildcats in June, he always said he'd take other official visits. But then he re-confirmed his commitment to Wildcat assistant Tim Kish in August. He later decided to take an official visit to Colorado in late September.
The visit to Colorado left him committed to the Wildcats, but still looking hard at the Buffs. He then said he was sold on Arizona after his visit to Tucson two weeks ago. That stance only lasted a week as he took an official visit to Oregon last weekend for the Ducks' game against Portland State.
He was on campus with three-star receiver Michael Calvin, and both came away impressed with the visit. But it was Pritchett that decided to go ahead and make the change to the Ducks.
Pritchett will be available later for further comment on the breaking news.
