Brockton, Mass. athlete Tyronne Pruitt only wants to attend one school, and he's putting all his eggs in a Big East basket.
"Tyronne is set on going to Boston College," said Timothy, the father of the 5-foot-11, 205-pounder. "I told him to keep his options open and it worries me a bit because BC hasn't offered him yet, but he's confident they will."
Pruitt has offers from UMass and Rhode Island and his father thinks schools like UConn, Syracuse and others could be close to offering as well. The Eagles are also close to an offer.
"He's been to nearly every home game of theirs," he said. "He has seen other Brockton players head to BC and he really loves the coaches. I think he's taking an official visit there either Jan, 24 or Jan. 31 and hopefully they'll offer him then."
There had been some talk of Pruitt not meeting NCAA standards.
"Tyronne is a good student and he just needs to be approved by BC admissions if they offer him," he said. "I don't see that as an issue."
And will he visit any other schools?
"Right now it doesn't look that way," he said. "If BC doesn't offer him on his visit, he might have to look around."
