Jersey ATH enjoys MD Junior Day

Elizabeth, N.J. prospect Josh Pryor is a big-time recruit in 2006. The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder recently visited Maryland, so what did he think about the Terps?
"He liked it," Elizabeth offensive coordinator Richard Pryor (and Josh's father) said. "Coach Friedgen is really disciplined and emphasized academics as well as sports. They also have a curfew during the week for the players."
This season Pryor helped Elizabeth to a 9-2 record as they reached the semifinals. He went on to post 1,881 yards passing with 19 touchdowns. Pryor was named all-county for a second year in a row.
"I saw a major improvement this year," he said. "He's a really smart player and learns from his mistakes on the field. He makes a lot of calls on his own, calling audibles and he never made any costly mistakes."
Pryor is likely too short to be a quarterback in college, but he's so athletic he can play defensive back or wide receiver.
"I play corner and I will play some safety this year," he said. "I know my best chance is as an athlete and most schools want me as a cornerback."
Currently the schools at the top of his list include Virginia, Maryland, Penn State, Iowa, Connecticut, Rutgers and South Florida, although he is still wide open right now.
This summer Pryor plans to tour a few different schools including camps at Iowa, Nebraska, Penn State and Maryland.
Pryor will also be at the Blue Chip Combine to be held on May 2nd at Rutgers and will attend the NIKE Camp at Penn State on April 30.
