The seventh scholarship offer has come for rising linebacker prospect Kyle Prater from Rice and it doesn't look like it will be his last.
The Kerrville (Texas) Tivy prospect has been adding offers since this past February. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder also says he's starting to narrow his list and has an early top three. Regardless, he states that he's still evaluating all of his options and looking at each school.
"The two schools I've visited so far were LSU and Oklahoma," Prater said. "The top three would be LSU, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.
"After visiting, those are top programs. The two visits I took, LSU and Oklahoma, they're pretty similar was far as the people, the coaches, the way they run their programs, and the support for the players."
Prater says that the one school in his top three that he hasn't visited is Nebraska, but he still has plenty of interest regardless.
"Well I've talked to them and I'm trying to get down there at the end of June for a visit," Prater said. "I was supposed to go there this past weekend, but then I was supposed to head up to watch my brother's spring game at Wyoming. I ended up not being able to make that though because of family stuff anyway. It just didn't work out."
Prater says that he's getting into workouts with his teammates as spring practice really starts to heat up in the next couple of weeks. On the recruiting front, he originally thought he would wait until after his senior season to make a commitment.
While he still may do that, he's also thinking about maybe committing a little earlier.
"Lately, I've been thinking that if I feel comfortable with everything and solid about making a decision, that I could do that," Prater said. "I'm still looking at everything though, comparing, and figuring this all out."
Prater also holds offers from Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech.
