From a recruiting standpoint I'm not too thrilled with this one either, but I'll have faith that Pruitt believes he can come in and make an immediate impact.

Pruitt is getting away from the big ol 3-4 guys and we need some 250-260 lb DE to fit this system. You'll see him targeting the faster lighter guys who can fly to the ball. I like his tape, high motor type of kid but it'll be interesting to see how this plays out to NSD. Seems he just jumped on a big offer so I wouldn't be surprised if he went else where once he takes visits and etc.

Well he's from Georgia, right? He may go, but I also wouldn't be surprised if he sticks. We'll see. Definitely glad we're going after leaner, more mobile and disruptive guys on the line. But again, we have so many big time DEs in state this year (and I'll hold up hopes for Cece til the end although it's a long shot) ... I just hope this guy can come in and produce immediately.

yep he is from new york, but he knows leonard and jenkins and was smart to jump on the offer.. he has a very quick fast step.. i love this pick up.. here are a few good comments about him and where he fits..

***

A 5-technique is outside shoulder of the tackle. It is what a typical strongside defensive end would play. A 7-technique is outside shoulder of the tight end. Not many teams play a seven technique anymore as most will opt to play a 9-technique with is a full yard outside of the tackle or tight end in a pass rush specialist type of position.

It is pretty clear what this offer is IMO. He, Young, Rivers, and Ledbetter are all guys who can play a 5-technique in a 3 man front and stay at that position in a four man front. All three look to be in that 270 pound range whereas a guy like Ledbetter projects to be much bigger than that IMO. Young, Rivers, and Vasser all give you that explosive first step that allow them bend the edge. They can win at the point of attack against the run and they are athletic and explosive enough to cross face and get inside. IMO, these are the explosive type of ends that allow you to play an attacking style stunting defense.
