Maryland is getting coal in its stocking this Prince-mas.
A year after nabbing highly touted local tackle Damian Prince on National Signing Day, Isaiah Prince has chosen to leave the area and play for Ohio State. The four-star offensive tackle from Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt announced his decision on Wednesday as part of NSD.
Prince originally committed to Alabama on Jan. 23, but the top player from Maryland immediately took a visit to Columbus. He visited College Park a few days later before ultimately deciding on the Buckeyes.
Prince's commitment to Ohio State means the Terrapins came up short on its top National Signing Day target. The Terps will have to settle for just one of the top five players in the state for the Class of 2015.
The 6-foot-6, 272-pound offensive lineman from Eleanor Roosevelt is the No. 7 tackle in the country and the No. 105 player overall. Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley led the Terrapins' recruitment of Prince, who also took a pair of unofficial visits to College Park over the summer.
