Pringle wants to be next in line

Carver's Bay usually has an elite recruit every few years and in recent years, the last name has been Geathers.

That is not the case this time, but like the Geathers, this one does play defensive line. Get the latest here.

"I am hearing from Alabama, LSU, Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee, and a few others. Those are the schools that have been in contact with me so far, but no offers yet though," Naquez Pringle told Scout.

Most kids that are football stars like Pringle followed a school as a kid, but that is not the case for him. He did not think a lot about football being his future until a couple of years ago.

"I never really had a favorite or anything because I did not really pay attention to college football that much growing up. "I settled down when I got to high school and that is when I really decided that I wanted to play college football. I have been working hard since then trying to become a prospect. I think I am getting there."

The University of South Carolina has not gotten the 6-foot-3, 280 pound rising junior on their campus yet, but another in-state school has.

The Tigers impressed him.

"Clemson has a good academic system and they have a very good football program, so they had a lot of things I liked. I have been there for a game and I like the fans there. The crowd is wild and I was impressed with them. I will be back there this season for sure. I loved hearing them say C-L-E-M-S-O-N, it was crazy."

He is hearing from CU on a regular basis, but there are still other schools he'd like to hear from.

"I want to hear more from Florida, Georgia, Virginia Tech, and USC. I just want my name to get out there a little more. I know it is still early, but that is what I am working towards."

Carver's Bay has put out some talent over the years and three of the best have come from one family. Robert Geathers, Clifton Geathers, and Kwmae Geathers all played at Carver's Bay and Pringle feels it is his turn to follow in their footsteps.

"I always want to be the best. I look back at Clifton, Kwame, and other top guys that played my position to see what I can learn. I push myself and I think I am getting better with my footwork and strength. Those guys went on to sign scholarships and that is where I want to be in a couple of years."
