Nick Pringle has had a week.
It all started with offers from Alabama and Arizona State earlier this week. The once-Wofford forward was getting Power-5 recognition. Then, the offers kept coming for Pringle.
On Wednesday, West Virginia offered a scholarship to Pringle. WVU Associate Head Coach Larry Harrison was on the recruitment for the 6-foot-10 forward. For Pringle, the offer from WVU was a blessing.
“Receiving an offer from WVU was a blessing man,” he told WV Sports Now.
“The Big 12 is a very skilled, competitive conference and to receive an offer from a top 4-5 team is more than an honor,” Pringle said. “They have a great coaching staff that coached together for years and a legendary head coach, coach Huggins.”
At Wofford, Pringle played for the Terriers his freshman season, appearing in 15 games. The Seabrook, South Carolina native averaged 2.0 points and 2.1 rebounds in his first season. Pringle entered the transfer portal over the offseason, committing to Dodge City CC, a JUCO located in Kansas.
So, what type of player did West Virginia recruit?
“I’m a skilled, versatile forward that impacts the game in many ways. I play with a relentless motor, I rebound, guards one through five, pass, spaces the floor, rim protect, screen, all standing at 6’10. I’m a guy that loves to bring energy and play harder than everyone else,” Pringle said.
Bob Huggins and his coaching staff love to go after junior college players, they always have. They want humble kids. Huggins reminded us why he likes the JUCO players more than the five-stars.
“I like junior college guys because they’re used to eating a cheese sandwich and riding in a van,” Huggins said.
Pringle is set to begin his first season of JUCO ball, when Dodge City CC takes on Kansas Wesleyan University, on Nov. 1.
