Class: Junior

Ht/Wt: 6-2-208

Position: Safety

Hometown: Port St. Joe, Fla

Twitter: @CP3_850

Thoughts: How is Pryor only a Junior? I feel like he's been blowing people up for like the last five years. CP finished last year with 100 tackles, only behind big Preston with 109.Starting all 13 games Calvin also had a sack, two picks, five forced fumbles, five pass breakups and a fumble return. He was everywhere. One big positive from Pryor has been his health (knock on wood) as he has appeared in every game possible since arriving on campus. Calvin will keep the starting role at Free Safety and I think his production increases even more this year. He may not get 100 tackles, but we may not need him to. Calvin came into the program as a three star prospect and the 31st ranked safety in his class. Someone please go find me 30 better safeties than him right now. Charlie and company have helped in molding him into an outstanding player who along with Hakeem is a preseason watch list beast. (Bednarik and Thorpe) Enjoy CP this year because I wouldn't be surprised to see him shaking Roger Goodell's hand come next May.

Sweet Tweet:

I don't know how I feel about Tweets like this from players. My first instinct is to feel a little bad for these guys. We as fans, myself included, put high expectations on these 18-21 year old kids and then don't hesitate to throw them under the bus when things go bad. It's one thing when you can tell that someone just doesn't have the skills, but something else completely when they have the talent and the knowledge but just made a mistake. I think at times we need to remember that and act accordingly. The other half of me enjoys seeing these messages, because I know everyone is getting dialed in for a special season. Good luck to Calvin and the rest of the squad and lets not forget as fans that typically they want to get that win probably more than any of us do. L1C4.
