High School Highlights:

How'd He Get to College Park?

Maryland's most heralded recruit since Stefon Diggs, Damian Prince committed to the Terrapins on Signing Day. He delivered the following quote, which will forever live in Maryland lore:

"I picked Maryland for a lot of different reasons," Prince said. "But one of the main reasons was to show all of the talented players in my area that we can stay right here and build a dynasty. You don't have to go to Alabama and Florida State and LSU to be successful. You can stay right here and have the same success if we start building it now. I wanted to be the one to start it off. There's so much talent here and it's important to me to rep the DMV and hopefully get players in the future to do the same. I'm not following what other players do, I'm making my own way to be successful. I know my great grandfather would be proud of that."

Profiling the entire team

Prince was selected to play in the Under Armour All-American Game, and was also named a Parade All-American and first team All-USA by the USA Today. He was named All-Met, All-State and All-WCAC twice.

Nickname:

"The crown Prince"

Career Highlight:

Being Damian Prince.

Dream Season:

Prince wins one of the starting tackle jobs, overpowers Big Ten defenders and makes either first or second team All-Big Ten.

2014 Prospectus:

Damian Prince was pretty much a lock to start as a true freshman in College Park before Moise Larose's suspension and Larry Mazyck's academic troubles. Now it's pretty much guaranteed that the Terps' blue-chip lineman will be starting somewhere against James Madison, but where?

Center is the only place truly ruled out. Prince's frame moves him elsewhere and Sal Conaboy is truly entrenched at the position. Guard seems less likely, as Prince has true tackle size and the Andrew Zeller/Michael Dunn/Evan Mulrooney trio should produce two starters. Fellow blue-chip freshman Derwin Gray will also be in the mix, leaving the possibility of two true freshman tackles for the Terps.

Up Next:

Our next player was better known as a basketball player while in high school.
