Will Pruitt looked like a small college, possibly Division 1 player for the last year. 

Mt. Juliet High School guard Will Pruitt is now firmly a D1 prospect, after earning an offer from Campbell University.  He will graduate with his Class of 2020.

State Rankings are based on what a player will be.  Where will he be at his pinnacle?  This evaluation is more of an analysis of where a player is right now.  There is some speculation embedded, but consider what he is now more than what he might become.

What skills and attributes make Will Pruitt a college prospect?  What does he need to work on?

Offense (0-15): 13

Exceptional passer.  High percentage shooter, but he doesn't shoot often.  Pruitt is a pass-first point guard that can shoot, not the modern point guard that needs to score.

Like Michigan State point guards of yore, Pruitt hits the inbounds pass running.  From the second the ball falls through the net, Will is already dashing up floor.   Pruitt changes direction pretty well, not expertly.  He really thrives with an uncanny awareness of the defender's position.  

His handles are quirky and defenders struggle to keep him in check for this reason.
