J.D. Pride Becomes Latest Minnesota Commit
Pride helped lead the Eagles to a 9-2 mark as a junior, losing to Orono in the Class AAAA, Section 6 Football finals 19-15. He attended camps at Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa State, Michigan, Ohio State, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Minnesota has been a school that Pride grew up watching close as his father played there along with other family members.
"I've grown up watching a lot of schools. Minnesota has always been a school that I liked a lot. Just the tradition that they have got. The coaches that they have right now are great. They just have a really good school all-around, football and academic-wise."
Pride is a good student who is working hard to be eligible as a freshman.
"My GPA right now is around a 2.9. I still have two or three core classes that I need to take. After that, it will be mid three's. I took the ACT and got an 18."
