The 5’9, 188-pounder now holds over 20 offers and currently has a top group of Arizona State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and USC. Last summer, he took visit to Miami, Notre Dame, and Ohio State, then tripped to Oklahoma in early December.
Originally from California, Pledger is thought to be high on the home-state Trojans, as USC leads in his 247Sports Crystal Ball projections.
A consensus five-star prospect, Pledger is ranked as the No. 25 prospect nationally, the No. 2 all-purpose back, and the No. 4 player in Florida, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
