He has done so on many occasions since becoming UGA's defensive coordinator and one of the prospects he acted first on was Tyrique McGhee.
In early June, Pruitt had the 5-foot-10, 185 pound junior on campus. He put him through drills, he worked him at cornerback, and an offer from Georgia was handed out.
McGhee has stayed in regular contact with the Dawgs and he has UGA as his leader.
"There is no doubt that UGA is my top school right now," said McGhee. "When I get to visit Georgia, they take care of me, and just being in Athens on gameday -- that speaks for itself."
It is early, still almost a year and a half before McGhee will sign with a school, but he has thought about committing to the Dawgs.
"It (committing to UGA) has crossed my mind, but I think I am going to wait it out right now," said McGhee. He likes the way Georgia treats him in Athens, Ga., he likes how they are actively recruiting him, and he feels wanted by the in-state school.
"When I visited for the Vanderbilt game, I got to sit down and talk to with Coach Pruitt and Coach [Mark] Richt. They told me before I left that they want me there now and that they need lockdown corners like me at Georgia. I get to talk with them every time I visit and they are just cool guys."
Apparently other schools see the same thing in the junior out of Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach County that Pruitt and Richt see. Nobody is throw his way this season. His team is still undefeated and he is happy about that.
"I just don't get the ball thrown my way this year. It can get boring out there, but I guess it is OK since we are 6-0," said McGhee.
