08/08/2014 - Northwestern's NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 3. WR Kyle Prater, RS Senior...An Illinois native, Prater was a Parade High School All-American and five-star recruit, commanding attention from all the top programs in college football. He committed to USC and redshirted in 2010 due to hamstring and groin injuries and missed most of 2011 due to a broken bone in his left foot. After two injury plagued season at Southern California, Prater decided to transfer closer to home in the Midwest and was given a resident waiver from the NCAA to play immediately at Northwestern and not sit out a full season.

The past two seasons for the Wildcats, Prater has seen limited playing time and registered only 19 catches, struggling to be much of a factor. He enters his senior season with one more chance to make a name for himself and show scouts why he was so highly touted out of high school, but he'll need to fight for playing time with incumbent starters and fellow seniors Tony Jones and Christian Jones. Nonetheless, Prater has the size, athletic ability and perceived upside that NFL evaluators love. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

08/14/2013 - OTHER NORTHWESTERN PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: WR Kyle Prater (6-4, 215, 4.58)*...An Illinois-native, Prater was a blue-chip recruit out of high school and took his talents to the west coast, enrolling at Southern Cal. But despite the hype he lasted only two seasons with the Trojans before transferring closer to home and the Wildcats. Prater caught just 10 passes last season, but he has the frame, athleticism and toughness to emerge as a reliable target for Northwestern in 2013. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
