Pringle is one of the top players in the country in the 2024 cycle, ranking as the No. 46 player and No. 1 offensive tackle in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings.
The Dorchester, South Carolina native ranks as the state’s top prospect and at 6-foot-7, 330 pound offensive tackle has an extremely high ceiling.
The instate Gamecocks may be tough to beat in Pringle’s recruitment. Dorchester is just 82 miles from Columbia and Pringle has made the 75 minute trek to South Carolina frequently. Pringle visited South Carolina twice in the spring, once in the summer, once during the season and once in December following the conclusion of the season.

While Pringle has been to Columbia more than anywhere else, he’s also been to his other contenders. Pringle visited Tennessee twice over the summer and again for the Florida game.
The highly touted prospect thrice visited Clemson and Georgia during 2023 season and has seen both Florida and North Carolina State once.
Tennessee currently has just three players committed in its 2024 recruiting classes including five-star athlete Jonathan Echols, four-star corner Kaleb Beasley and three-star defensive lineman Carson Gentle. Landing Pringle would be a fantastic start to Tennessee’s offensive line class.
The Vols’ 2024 recruiting class ranks 13th nationally according to the 247sports team rankings.
The vols should be ranked in the top 5!!
