Pryts thanked everyone involved in his recruitment process on his Twitter account:
“I want to begin by thanking God for this great opportunity to continue playing the game I love at the next level. Though this process has been stressful, it is one I am extremely blessed and grateful to be in. To my family, friends, coaches, teammates and everyone who has been here for me, thank you for the never ending support. I wouldn’t be in this position without all of you. To all the coaches and schools that have recruited me, thank you for every opportunity. With that being said I have decided to de-commit from Penn State University and sign with Stanford University. I want to thank Penn State first as a community and fan base, but a greater thank you to Coach Franklin, the staff and the commits in my class for everything they have done for me. I wish them nothing but the best. Penn State has always been a place very close to my heart and it’s incredibly hard to stepping away from that. But this is the best decision for myself and my future. In my heart Stanford is the place where I belong and where I can achieve all of my dreams. Excited for my future as a Cardinal! #CardClass16”
