Class of 2006 Prospect: Munir Prince
With my attention primarily focused on the Class of 2005, it isn't easy to get me to shift gears into coverage of the Class of 2006. However, after hearing rumblings from many in the business the past month, I knew there was something special to check out at De Smet private school in Saint Louis, Missouri where junior-to-be running back/cornerback Munir Prince attends school. In fact, it did not take long into my conversation with head coach Pat Mahoney to know how confident he felt that Prince was indeed something special. "He has incredible vision and quickness," said head coach Pat Mahoney. "He very seldom is tackled by the first guy, and he often escapes body shots you'd never imagine him to be able to break because he really keeps his feet moving and has incredible balance. Once hits a seam, you have no chance of catching him." "He is at the National AAU track meet this weekend competing in the 100 and 200. He has recorded best times of 10.4 and 21.0 in both, respectively. At the Michigan camp, he recorded a 4.4 electronically timed. He benches nearly 300, cleans 250, and squats over 400. He also holds a 4.5 GPA with honors, and despite all of that, he remains humble and is one of our hardest workers. He is the total package." In fact, most schools wish they had duplicates of Prince because of his ability to play the cornerback position, as well. "He has great feet for the position, and such great upper body strength. Against William Franklin from Vashon last fall, he recorded two interceptions. Franklin was able to get one touchdown on a fade route in the endzone simply because was able to jump four inches higher, or otherwise, Prince more than held his own." Prince took an unofficial visit to the University of Iowa earlier this week after being in Iowa City to qualify for this weekend's National AAU track meet. "Iowa is very high on him, and although they can't officially offer until September 1st, I expect them to offer as soon as the day comes. Missouri and Wisconsin are two others I expect to offer, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Michigan, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Illinois also extend offers. He seems to be real high on the Big Ten, and he also has expressed interest in returning to Florida." Prince attended Armwood High School in Seffner, Florida for four months as a freshman in high school to play under coach Sean Callahan.
