Prescott was a three star prep recruit out of Louisiana who enrolled in spring 2011, choosing to redshirt the same year. In 2012, he played in all 12 games primarily in a red zone, short yardage situation as he accounted for eight touchdowns (four passing, four rushing). He started seven games in 2013, throwing for 1,940 yards and 10 touchdowns while adding another 829 and 13 on the ground as a tremendous dual threat. He took over the starting duties full time in 2014 and posted the greatest season by an offensive player in school history, breaking 12 school single-season statistical records while leading the program to its highest poll finish since 1940 and its first Orange Bowl in 73 years. Prescott threw for 3,449 yards and 27 touchdowns, ran for 986 and 14, and even caught two passes for 35 yards and a touchdown; he earned All-American and first team All-SEC honors and finished eighth in Heisman voting. He strung together another remarkable season in 2015 as he accounted for 3,793 yards and 29 touchdown through the air and 588 and 10 on the ground. He was 2015 Senior CLASS Award, which is given to the top NCAA FBS senior student-athlete who is supports the four most ideal areas: community, classroom, character and competition and Conerly Trophy, given to the best football player in the state of Mississippi. Added to the list were All-American and first team All-SEC honors. Prescott leaves as one of four players in FBS history and the second player in Southeastern Conference history to throw for 70 touchdowns and rush for 40 touchdowns in a career, one of 10 players in FBS history and the second player in SEC history to pass for 8,500 yards and rush for 2,000, and a player who accounted for 114 career touchdowns, fourth in SEC history.
