Commitment Status Undecided on College Choice

Wisconsin has been in early on Pritchard, as Oregon State was the only other high major to offer at the time. He visited Madison in January of 2014 and also visited Notre Dame. Soon after Pritchard picked up offers from Oregon, Washington, Arizona State, and Oklahoma (where his father played football). Most recently, Pritchard added offers from UCLA, Iowa, Villanova, Indiana and Butler. Virginia and Stanford are also showing interest.

Pritchard participated in the Team USA Developmental Team tryouts in the fall of 2012 and was added to the squad last spring. He plays for a great high school squad in the Portland area, and has helped lead West Linn to back-to-back state titles in the largest division. Not a bad start to his young career.

With the recent scandal at Oregon, the Ducks may not look as enticing as they normally would. Though Pritchard would love to stay home to play college ball, he is "looking for the best fit."
