Pratt Putting Together Huge Senior Season

Wolfpack commitment Germaine Pratt has put together a huge senior season for High Point (NC) Central High School.

Germaine Pratt is among the more heralded recruits that will sign with NC State next year and he's justifying his rankings this year.

High Point's high school football team has played nine games and they have won six of those contests. In several, Pratt's contributions have been the difference.

He has nine touchdowns on offense and on defense Pratt has been just as productive. Stat keepers have credited him with four interceptions, eight pass breakups and roughly 70 tackles. That production has come mostly at receiver and strong safety.
        
Pratt said he feels good about where High Point stands when it comes to jockeying for a playoff spot and an attractive seed but he isn't sure where they will fall on the bracket yet.

Pratt was a relatively early commitment for NC State and even though the Pack has struggled through some growing pains under new head coach Dave Doeren, that hasn't given him cause for any second thoughts.

"Every team has ups and downs. I feel like they're going to be fine. I think they're going to have a good season when I come next year."

Clayton White could be Pratt's position coach next year. He coaches up the safeties and that may be where Pratt's greatest potential lies. He's talking to the 6-3 athlete as much as he can during the hectic time that is the fall football season and Pratt feels good about the relationship they have.

Head coach Dave Doeren also takes time out of his schedule to talk to Pratt and the other commits whenever he has a little time to spare.

"Earlier in the year coach White came to one of our games so I know they're excited to get me up there," he said.

Occasionally Pratt hears from other schools but he is no longer initiating conversations with coaches other than those at NC State. North Carolina, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Virginia and Wake Forest were among the most serious suitors before Pratt's commitment but he said he has made it clear he will not be having a change of heart.
