4-Star Carver(GA) OL Elijah Pritchett Recaps Visit to USC

June 13, 2021

Q & A With Scott Schrader

SS: Was there anything on this visit you were able to see?

EP: Really anything a visitor would want to see. The Hollywood Sign, The Strip, just a lot of stuff to do out here. You’ll never get bored.

SS: What were you expecting to see and expecting Los Angeles to be like?

EP: Really, more than I expected. It’s different actually being at the place, it’s crazy.

SS: Did the experience live up to what you were expecting?

EP: Yes sir, definitely.

SS: What were the highlights from this trip? Anything with the staff that impacted your recruitment?

EP: Definitely the beach. Yes, I kind of got a feel for all the coaches, meeting them for the first time in person.

SS: Who on the staff do you talk to the most?

EP: Dane Stevens, Viane Talamaivao, Clay Helton.

SS: How would you explain your relationship with Dane?

EP: He was the first person to hit me up from USC. I talk to him almost every day. 

SS: Would you say he’s one of the closest guys recruiting you? Any chance you would take another visit out here?

EP: Yes sir, for a game.

SS: Is there anything with NIL stuff that matters to you?

EP: That’s always a good thing. People like me can make money off their name, that’s a blessing.

SS: Everybody’s coming after you, how is USC going to get a kid from Columbus, GA to Los Angeles?

EP: They’ve got a good chance, I’m loving it out here. My parents were on board with whatever I got in my head.

SS: What ultimately do you want to get from a school and football program?

EP: Number One, is a good relationship. If I don’t have a great relationship with the coach who’s going to be coaching every day, that’s not going to be a good thing. It’s going to lead to me not playing and riding the bench.

SS: What is your impression of the USC Football program?

EP: I thought it was going to be a regular football program. I can tell you now it is different than what people think it is.

SS: How would you rate this visit out of 10? What other visits do you have?

EP: A 10/10. Alabama and Arkansas. At Arkansas, Coach Sam is a standout. Georgia is going to ben official during the season.
