Last name: Ephesians Prysock
Ranking: Four stars (255 National, 32nd CB, 20th in Ca)
Secondary assessment: “Prysock has excelled on both sides of the ball for the past two years, but has been brought in to play in corners,” writes 247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins. He’s all 6-2, pushing 6-3 with good ball skills and ball awareness. He needs to keep working on both his short area burst and his long speed, but he has plenty of the physical tools you’re looking for in a next-level turn.
“It won’t shock us if Prysock moves to safety if he continues to do plenty and doesn’t improve his overall athleticism. He shows the physicality to play the position and his positional versatility is a plus.”
Outlook: Prysock is a player who looks in the role as soon as you see him with his teammates. He is long and perfectly constructed for a cornerback and DeWayne Walker has been consistent in saying that he likes his corners to be bigger in size. Arizona needs to grow in every position and Prysock is a big step in the right direction.
Throughout the spring, Prysock has always been one of the best newcomers and while there are a few who are better at his position right now, Prysock is a clear future starter.
The biggest problem Prysock is going to have is that he needs to gain weight. He’s just not built to play every snap, which is good, because he won’t. Prysock is actually in a good position as he learns from Treydan Stukes and Christian Roland Wallace while also playing in some packages.
We could also see Prysock playing on special teams and think that would help accelerate his career trajectory. Prysock is one of the early registrants who looks set for success, though we caution that might not happen immediately due to his need to get stronger and Arizona’s roster composition at cornerback.

He said it: “Confident”, Arizona cornerbacks coach DeWayne Walker added. “He’s very similar to Tacario in terms of length so he’s going to bring the same skill set. Having two big guys on opposite sides is quite appealing. Really excited to train him and he’s got a big advantage He and Kevin Green have been playing ball together since they were nine years old, so having the chance to come to school together and experience some of the same things as Division I players is going to be pretty cool for them.”
