Pryor Enjoys TCU Experience

Pryor is a two-year starter at Sulphur Springs

Sulphur Springs, Texas sophomore safety Larry Pryor is already a big name to watch from the 2015 class.

Sulphur Springs,Texas safety Larry Pryor is already landing on the lists of several top programs. Of course, those teams still have a few years to wait on his services as he's only a sophomore.

But, teams such as Texas A&M, Baylor, LSU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas and TCU have already targeted him as a prospect to watch from the 2015 class.

At 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, Pryor already fits the size of a prototypical safety for a prospect that still has two and a half years of high school left. In helping the Wildcats to an 8-2 record and district championship, Pryor led the team with 103 total tackles while intercepting one pass and causing two fumbles.

Pryor made his first trip to TCU last weekend to watch the Horned Frogs take on #1 Kansas State. He enjoyed the visit despite showing up late.

"It went pretty good, I had fun out there at the game," Pryor said. "I liked getting to go down to the field and watching pre-game. The only thing I got to see was the basketball arena because I got their late; I didn't have time to see anything else."

With the fourth-largest crowd in TCU history on hand, Pryor said the atmosphere definitely caught his attention.

"It was crazy, I had a lot of people around me screaming and yelling so it got me into it," Pryor said of the game atmosphere.

Like other prospects who visited, Pryor felt the young Frogs played Kansas State well, especially the defense. He spent most of his time watching the Frogs' linebackers.

"I thought they did good and all, they played against them," he said. "I thought the defense did pretty good, they had a lot of good stops when the offense couldn't put points on the board. They did pretty good. I was mainly looking at the linebackers a lot; I had my eye on them. I didn't watch the safeties a whole lot."

Pryor has mentioned in previous updates that TCU is among his favorites schools, if not the top one. Did the visit make him like the program even more?

"It did, it's a pretty good school to me," he said.
