One Down, One To Go For Pruitt

Shaun Pruitt has one official left on the docket. Last weekend, he visited Michigan State and Illinois is next. Shortly after the visit, Pruitt will look to decide.

Shaun Pruitt has two very good options at this point. He made his official visit to Michigan State last weekend. Predictably, things went well.

"It was real good," Pruitt said. "It was my first official so I didn't know what to expect. It was real nice."

"They really have a lot of things planned out for me like what they see happening in the next couple of years. They showed me a power point presentation and it was comforting to see that they do have a plan for me."

And of course, the Spartans left him with a positive feeling about their program. Now, Illinois gets its chance on Sept. 13. This is shaping up to be quite and interesting two-team recruiting battle.

"There's not a leader. Of course, I'm thinking about Michigan State more because I just went on an official and after visiting Illinois that might change; that's why you go home and think about it. It's a tough decision."

Pruitt is approaching the decision with poise and he won't make a spur of the moment pick. In speaking with him, you can tell he's looking at all the angles. He says that he'll be ready to decide a few days after the official to Illinois.

"I should be. I've seen enough of both of the programs so that should be plenty. I'm not going to make a decision at Illinois if I feel good about them. Of course I'd be excited so I'd just wait a couple of days and think about it.

"I can't go wrong at Michigan State and I can't go wrong at Illinois either."

Pruitt ranks No. 67 in our pre-season Top 100.
