A couple of potentially prolific reinforcements have been added to Robinson's offense, one of them familiar to Knights fans.

WR Byron Pringle, who missed the entire 2010 season after being arrested last summer for his part in a South Tampa crime spree, has re-enrolled at the school and is eligible, coach Mike DePue said.

As a sophomore in 2009, Pringle had 21 receptions for 591 yards and three touchdowns, with an interception on defense. Following his arrest, he spent his junior year at Brewster Technical Center, an alternative school in Hillsborough County.

"He has a positive attitude, he's a hard-working kid," DePue said. "Did he get in trouble? Yeah, but everybody gets a second chance. Here's a kid who has a chance to play college ball, but he knows he has to keep his nose clean."

Pringle is hardly the only fresh arrival who could have a significant impact. Junior Keenan West, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound quarterback/receiver from Raleigh, N.C., also has enrolled. West's South Raleigh team finished 10-4 last season.

"This stirs the pot a little bit," DePue said.
