Benay Pryer Getting Looks
Benay Pryer Profile After attending some camps over the summer and getting feedback from coaches on the gridiron his focus has now shifted to playing football instead of shooting hoops. At 6-6, 275 pounds and with a self-reported 4.85 (40), Pryer could be a force coming off the edge once he gets into a college strength and conditioning program where he will train his body strictly for football. Through four games of his senior campaign he has registered 24 tackles and a couple of sacks, along with three forced fumbles. College coaches have taken notice of Pryer's skills but it has taken a little more time than it normally does. "I only played a little during my freshman year because my mom took me of the team because of my grades," explained Pryer. "I didn't have bad grades and I was still eligible but I didn't do as good as my mom wanted. "I got injured my sophomore year and then my mom took me off the team again last year because of my grades. I had C's and some B's but I didn't do what I needed to do in her mind." Pryer said that he is in good graces on the academic front and that several schools are showing what he terms as "strong interest". "I'm talking to LSU, Oklahoma, Florida, Auburn, UL-Monroe, Southeastern and a few more schools," he said. Pryer said that he has received some mixed signals regarding scholarship offers and doesn't know exactly where things stand. "LSU, UL-Monroe and Southeastern said that I had an offer over the summer but I haven't gotten anything in writing," he said. "I've been to every LSU home game this year and Coach Josh Henson keeps telling me that he wants me to play for him." Pryer is in the process of sending out film from his first four games with the hope that some written scholarship offers will come his way. He has three schools in particular that he is looking to get some good news from. "I like LSU, Oklahoma and Florida a lot," he said. "I like how LSU takes care of you with your academics and they have the No. 1 program in the country. They would be my top choice. "I also like Oklahoma because it's out-of-state and seems like it would be a fun place to go to. Florida is out-of-state too but the big thing they have going for them is that it's in the SEC too."
