USC defensive coordinator Clayton White and secondary coach Torrian Gray continue to work thru the transfer portal for perhaps one more addition for the defensive backfield before training camp begins. Freshman All-American and Big 12 Honorable Mention All-Conference CB Karon Prunty (6-1 189) of Kansas is at USC today (Saturday) for a look-see. Prunty posted on Instagram a short video of a stop at Williams-Brice Stadium.
Prunty is a native of Portsmouth, VA who started all nine games for the Jayhawks last season. He totaled 26 tackles, broke up 10 passes and had one interception.
Prunty was rated a three-star prospect and ranked #137 nationally among corners in the 247Sports Composite of 2020. He first committed to Liberty, then flipped to Kansas in December 2019, signed with the Jayhawks later that month and enrolled in January 2020. He also had offers from Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Charlotte, Pitt, Army and Connecticut.
Prunty has attracted heavy attention since entering the portal June 6th. Virginia Tech is another program expected to be a major player.
