Inside Clark-LeClair Stadium on Sunday, an extraordinary finale to an incredible college baseball series for East Carolina occurred. The Pirates prevailed in a nail-biting, back-and-forth contest between two Top-15 opponents in front of a venue record 6,017 spectators. Freshman Bristol Carter’s RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning gave ECU a 10-9 victory and a crucial early-season series victory over

Byron Louis (Fort Lauderdale, Fla./American Heritage) has already visited the school as a junior; this will be a very difficult pull for Wisconsin.

According to Louis, “the campus and city were beautiful,” Badger247 reported. “The atmosphere was nice.”

Along with Alabama, Florida State, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Tennessee, Georgia, Penn State, USC, and Miami (FL), UW is ranked among the top 10 for the four-star running back position.

The Badgers have some young, exciting talent at tailback position, but Louis might be a different breed. At 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, Louis can take a top off the defense and run for both power and speed.

Currently, one of Wisconsin’s weaker positions on the team is tight end. The future contributions of Rob Booker, Grant Stec, Tucker Ashcraft, and possibly even JT Seagreaves will be interesting to watch, but the Badgers are still looking for a solution to the mismatch issue at tight end.

Perhaps the solution lies with Marshall Pritchett (Rabun Gap, Ga.).

The 6-foot-5, 210-pound 247sports composite four-star prospect is athletic enough to split out to wide receiver, has good red zone jump ball ability, and impressive off-ball speed considering his size.

“They think I can come in and contribute early as a pass catcher,” Pritchett said. “The current tight ends were brought in to do different tasks than mine. They believe that my ability to extend the field vertically can influence the game. I’m viewed as the slot danger by them.

“Coach Longo has done it in the past and I think he’d find a way to use me perfectly in that offense.”
