Pritchett is one of three OTs committed to the Tide including, Tyler Booker and Dayne Shor and is the sixth top-100 recruit for in the 2022 class. The Columbus, Georgia native helped Carver High School finish with a 10-1 record and made it to the third round of the Georgia High School playoffs in 2020. He has primarily played as a left tackle his senior year but can play at another spot when needed.

He consistently gets his target to the ground as he plays with super aggression to finish his block. Although, Pritchett might have to turn down the attack just a tad. He uses his frame to prevent other defenders from getting inside and using his arms for the big, extended plays. Pritchett will be an excellent addition for Doug Marrone and the offensive line. He has the potential to become a multiyear starter for the Tide.

Pritchett verbally committed to the Tide on September 28. He was recruited by safeties coach Charles Kelly and offensive line coach Doug Marrone. He will participate in the All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 8 at noon on NBC in San Antonio, with other notable Alabama commitments, including QB Ty Simpson and TE Jaleel Skinner.
