Pruett signs with Lees-McRae
Asheville - One of the top prep basketball players in the mountains signed to play college hoops Wednesday. Isaiah Pruett who led the Reynolds Rockets to a WMAC title signed with Lees-McRae at the Reynolds High School gym. Pruett , a point guard for the Rockets, averaged almost 27 points a game helping the Rockets achieve a 22-5 record.
Pruett signed a little later in the signing period than he was expecting but says it was tough. The 5-7 guard was told his diminutive stature worked against him and admitted that " as I kept playing I did lose a little bit of hope but I just needed to stay poised." Pruett said Lees-McRae coaches liked the fact that he was "always an underdog, but I thrived in tough situations."
