Southern Durham (NC) quarterback Kendall Hinton talks about NC State and his recruitment…
Benay Pryer updates recruitment
"When I graduated high school last year LSU placed me at Mississippi Gulf Coast," said Benay Pryer. "I gave them my word I would return. I took a visit up there my senior year with my quarterback Jordan Jefferson. They knew about my situation and how I would have to go to junior college." Pryer has remained in close contact with one LSU assistant throughout 2008. "I have been talking to coach [Josh] Henson," he said. "I talked to him about a week ago. He was telling me how things were going. He told me to keep working hard and stuff like that." "He said there has been some stuff in the news about how he might leave LSU. He told me he isn't worried about that right now. He said he would make up his mind later on. He did say that no matter what happens that LSU is still a good school for me to attend." The Louisiana native prefers returning to familiar territory. "I am from Baton Rouge that's why I want to stay home," he explained. "I like the facilities, the fans, the athletics and academics. They help you out with tutors and stuff like that. Everything about is LSU is great." "I went to a few games this past year. I went to the Alabama game, Ole Miss game, Georgia game, and I went to another game. The atmosphere was great. Everything was loud no matter if they are winning or losing. You could walk up to anyone and get food." The 6-foot-6, 295-pound defensive lineman reports only the one offer from LSU, but he would like to hear from other programs as well. "Louisville has stayed in contact with me," Pryer said. "Several schools have shown interest. I think I could get an offer from any SEC school simply because of my size." "It's not just my size though. I have speed and quickness. I can move extremely well. I am working to get strong and improve my technique. I have a great defensive line coach, and he is helping to prepare me for the next level." "I would love to check out some other programs. I like LSU a lot, but I would not mind seeing some other schools. I would like to hear from Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss and Texas." Pryer redshirted as a freshman in order to have three years to play three.
