Pratt Talks LSU Offer

The old saying is, "it's the quiet guys you have to worry about". Navasota High School product Dexter Pratt (6'2, 225, 4.48) is a young man that does not say a whole lot, but maybe that is because he does not have to. His actions and abilities speak for him.

As a junior, the 4-star product took home All-State, All-District and district MVP honors while rushing for 2,058 yards on 205 carries with 20 touchdowns. As expected, the offers are already rolling in.

"I've received offers from LSU, Oklahoma, Texas, Oklahoma St. and TCU," Pratt informed. "I am surprised offers have come so soon, but it is a good feeling.

"Lately, I've been focused on basketball because I play Power Forward for my high school team," Pratt added. "If I had to choose though, I'd pick football over basketball because I am better at it."

Better is not the word. Pratt is one of the best athletes in the state of Texas and for that matter in the country. The talented back informed on some of the specifics which will be included in his future college decision.

"Growing up I was always a fan of Texas, but I will not be basing my decision on just that," Pratt explained. "I will be looking at different things such as the football program's recent history, the depth chart at my position and what does the program and university provide for its players. I am kind of familiar with LSU as well. I know a few of the players on the team and I like the fact that LSU just won the national title.

"I spoke to coach [Larry] Porter like a week ago," Pratt continued. "We talked about different things like football, my basketball team and just sports in general. I told him I wasn't sure if I would be attending LSU's Junior Day on February 23rd. I do know that I plan on taking all of my official visits next year and I'll make my choice like that."

Note: Pratt says he has maintained a 2.6 G.P.A this school year and is scheduled to take the ACT in March.
