LIGONIER, Ind. (WFFT) - West Noble's Brandon Pruitt is no longer heading from Ligonier to the Leathernecks after flipping his commitment from Western Illinois to Navy to continue his football career.

As a junior last season, Pruitt rushed for over 1,500 yards and 17 touchdowns. He was also named to the Class 3A All-State defensive team after racking up 79 tackles, including 23 for a loss, and 13 sacks for the 8-3 Chargers.

He says his flip in commitment came down to playing football at the FBS level, and the opportunities Navy offered him following his football career.
