Alabama Crimson Tide
As a Recruit
Elijah Pritchett’s high school coach, Corey Joyner, says Pritchett is one of the smartest linemen he’s ever coached. Joyner said Pritchett understands all the fronts and isn’t afraid to be a vocal leader up front. Joyner also called Pritchett a “one-man wrecking crew” for the way he destroys the defensive linemen he faces. As a junior, Pritchett led Carver to a 10-1 record and a spot in the Georgia Class 4A quarterfinals. He also earned all-state honors as a junior. His parents are Jermaine Pritchett and Nicole Thrasher. He plans on majoring in business in college. Pritchett lists his hobby as weightlifting.
