What makes you a top prospect at your position in the 2024 NFL Draft?
I feel like I’m a top prospect for my speed, length, and athleticism. I am a deep threat and I can catch any pass thrown to me. I’ve also developed my skill set to stay in bounds, tight-rope the sideline, and create separation.
At what age were you first interested in the sport of football?
Growing up I was very athletic. I participated in basketball, baseball, track, and soccer. I was around 5 years old when I started. Football was always the sport that held my attention and heart. In my sophomore year of high school, I knew I had something special and decided to dedicate all my time and energy into it.
What is one thing that NFL teams should know about you?
I work to be a master of my craft in the wide receiver room. So, what does that mean? Staying positive is essential in every way possible. I want any NFL club to know that I put my best foot forward in everything I do. I lead in love, positivity, excellent work ethic, and leadership.
If you could donate to one cause in the world, what would it be?
I would love to donate to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater High Point, NC. I believe in the mission to enable all young people and reach their fullest potential. I wouldn’t have made it as far, if I didn’t have people in my life that believed in me and pushed me to be better.
What is the best advice you have ever received?
“If you want to do something, make sure it’s something you want to do. Not because everybody else is doing it and wants you to do it.” My mother has been telling me that since I was in elementary.
Who was your childhood hero?
I would say my mother is my childhood hero. At her lowest points in life, she persevered and taught me to believe in God and keep going because you’ll never be down for long.
Who is the most underrated teammate in your locker room at your school?
The most underrated player in my locker room at Morgan State University would be JoJo. JoJo is a dynamic receiver on the field. He’s faced a lot of adversity, but there’s no denying his skill!
What is your biggest pet peeve?
I absolutely hate it when people smack their gum! Especially if we’re in a closed-off space, it really sends me over the edge.
Who is your favorite teacher ever?
Good ol’ Mr. Doyal from the third grade! One time I was being hard-headed in class and he had to call my mother, so my mother came up to the school and gave me some straightening up. When my mother left I was so embarrassed in front of the class. Mr. Doyal came up to me and gave me a snack. He told me, “You have to start listening, so that you can be the best that you can be”. From that day forward I did and he was always in my life to make sure! He’s been at every birthday party since!
Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
When I got injured at NCCU, it was the lowest point I’ve ever been. You never know how your career will turn out in the healing process, or what coaches will do in the meantime while you’re in recovery. I knew the best way to overcome all the negativity I was feeling on the inside, was to just focus on the day by day plan. The plan to get healthy and be great again.
Tell me something about your school and why it is so special to you?
I’m very proud to be a product of HBCU culture and education. Morgan State is a National Treasure at that! I think when you’re a part of a place that holds that much weight and excellence, the specialness rubs off on you!
If you could have any franchise restaurant in your house what would it be?
Well I have to have two places in my house! The first restaurant would have to be Flemings! To have unlimited access to their steak and pork chops would be a dream. The second restaurant I need is Starbucks! I can’t go a day without my strawberry frappucino with extra strawberry slices!
What is your favorite snack food?
My favorite snack is the White Chocolate Reese’s cup and the Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos.
What is your degree in?
I have a B.A. with a concentration in Management from North Carolina Central University and I’m currently pursuing a Master’s in Sociology from Morgan State University.
If you could sell yourself in one sentence what would you say?
It’s funny you mention that because during the season after every big play I made I would tell my teammates, “You’re always in good hands with Pratt. Morgan, are you in good hands?”
If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be?
If I could compare myself to a player in the NFL, it would definitely have to be Justin Jefferson due to his route running and the ability to create separation after the catch. We’re very similar in style and technique in those areas.
What is your favorite game to play at the carnival/theme park?
I would have to say the basketball toss game is my favorite. I always try to win one of the big bears.
If you could have dinner with three people dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would want to sit and talk with my great grandfather. He grew up during World War II, so I would love to pick his brain on what that time period was like. The second person I would like to sit down with is Odell Beckham Jr. I want to ask him what he does to keep his edge and how he’s stayed so elite after all these years. Lastly, I want to go to dinner with Oprah. I want to spend the evening asking her what it took to be so successful, and what advice she can give me to be successful.
