Kendric Pryor on Badgers Commitment

New Wisconsin commit Kendric Pryor talks about why he committed to the Badgers inside on BadgerNation.

Wisconsin added the commitment of Homewood-Flossmoor wide receiver Kendric Pryor -- who had offers from Iowa State, Army, Iowa, Connecticut and others. 

"I just felt that it was the right decision the best fit for me," Pryor said. 

Pryor was planning on taking his official visits before committing, but ended up not being able to pass on the Badgers. 
"I'm excited," Pryor said. "Took a lot of pressure off me. Now I can focus on this season and trying to win state." 
Wisconsin plans to use Pryor in a variety of ways. 
"They have a lot of people leaving at defensive back so I would have chance to play right away and they also want me to play offense," Pryor said. 
Although he was primarily recruited at defensive back by Wisconsin, the possibility of playing wide receiver is an interesting one. Plus, he's quite the target, week one of his high school season he caught four balls for two touchdowns and 120-plus yards. 
"I like it a lot because it gives me the opportunity to get on the field quicker by playing offense and defense," Pryor said. 
Pryor can now focus on the season, and competing for the Vikings -- who have high hopes for the fall. 
"Every game I want to try and get at least 100 yards and be an all-state wide receiver," Pryor said. 
And as for Wisconsin fans the 6-1, 175-pound prospect's got something to say.  
"I want to tell fans that I can't wait until next year. Go Badgers and On Wisconsin," Pryor said.
