Pratt has no favorites in mind
High Point (N.C.) Central safety Germaine Pratt is one of the top safety prospects in North Carolina. Pratt has six offers from N.C. State, Notre Dame, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wake Forest. Pratt was offered by Notre Dame last September and has since stayed in touch with (defensive line coach) Mike Elston. "We talk every once in a while," Pratt said. "Coaches know that I'm really open right now and I'm not even close to naming my list of favorites. Some sites are saying that N.C. State and UNC are my favorites, but that's not true. I'm completely neutral." "I know that Notre Dame is a really good school," Pratt said. "They got to the national championship last year and they have a really good coaching staff. Coach Elston likes that I'm a playmaker. He is always talking about [making plays]." So far, Pratt has visited Wake Forest, N.C. State, UNC, and Clemson, but he says a Notre Dame visit is possible "I will take all of my official visits and announce on signing day," Pratt said. "Right now, I don't know who will get my official visits. I would like to get out to Notre Dame before my season starts. I would like to figure out if I can see myself at Notre Dame before I add them [to] or drop them [from] my favorites." "Location will not play a factor, I will go wherever I am comfortable with the coaches and with the coaching staff," he said. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound safety runs the 400 meter, 200 meter, and the 4 x 200 meter relay for High Point Central. His best time in the 400 is 52 seconds. "I run pretty well, and I make smart plays on the field, too," Pratt said. Pratt is rated as a three-star prospect by Scout.com, and as a junior, he had 94 tackles, six interceptions and four pass breakups.
