Biography

FINS FACT
Julius spent nearly two full seasons (2009-10) on the Dolphins practice squad, watching and learning from the veteran receivers on team. “I’ve picked up different techniques that have helped me come in and out of my breaks faster, how to play versus press, getting a release,” Pruitt said. “I’m trying to pick up the little nuances because they’ve been playing a couple years and I’m trying to pick up as much as I can. I’m ready. I prepare like I’m going to be on the 53 every week. Coach tells me you never know when your number is going to be called so be prepared, and I am.” Julius was signed off the practice squad on December 30, 2010 in time for the season finale at New England, however he was placed on inactive list for that game.
