High Point (NC) Central standout Germaine Pratt participated in just one all-star game as he represented North Carolina in the 2013 Shrine Bowl.

Pratt finished the game with eight tackles, one tackle for loss and one pass breakup.

"I had fun down there," said Pratt. "We didn't win the game, but that's okay. I was really just playing for the kids."

During Shrine Bowl week he was able to hang out with Wolfpack commitments Jalan McClendon, Maurice Trowell, and Marcelias Sutton. Pratt also pointed out that he got a chance to recruit for the Pack, as he was mainly targeting offensive lineman Will Richardson and wideout Trevion Thompson.

"I told both of them to quit playing and come join the Pack," said Pratt, laughing.

Pratt was supposed to be participating in this weekend's Offense-Defense Bowl in Florida, but he won't be able to because he has other plans.

"I'm not playing because I'm going up to NC State," said Pratt. "I enroll on January 5th. I'm ready to get up there. It's something I was working on because I really just didn't want to sit around and not be playing or doing anything."

Pratt, a first-team all-state selection at defensive back, is expected to make the transition to outside linebacker this spring for the Wolfpack.

"That's what I think they want me to play," he stated. "When I played coverage in high school I would go in the box and play in space too so I think it's a good fit for me."

He was able to take his official visit to NC State prior to heading down to the Shrine Bowl.

"It went well," said Pratt. "I got to know my future teammates really well. I got to know them much better. The best part was basically just being with the players that are already there. Guys like Sean Paul, Malcolm [Means].

"I know it's a really good fit for me. The coaches are great... they really relate to you."

Pratt is rated a three-star prospect by Scout.com.
