This past season, Prather caught 52 passes for 501 yards and 3 touchdowns. With the earlier departures of Sam Jones and Bryce Ford-Wheaton to the 2023 NFL Draft, Prather was expected to be the top target in West Virginia’s 2023 passing attack.
Coaches across the country will no doubt be lining up and preparing their recruiting pitch in an attempt to land this impact player. This will no doubt include Tiquan Underwood, Pat Narduzzi and the Pitt Panthers.
Coming out of Northwest High School in Germantown, Maryland, Prather (6’3″, 200) was a 4-star recruit and rated as one of the Top 200 overall players in the Class of 2021.
Prior to signing with WVU, Prather received offers from 40+ schools, including Pitt, Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Ole Miss, North Carolina, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Wisconsin.
Prather did make an unofficial visit to Pitt in January of 2020.
