Two Visits Down For Prince

J.P. Prince, the 6-foot-6 point guard out of Memphis White Station completed his second official visit. Prince has a pair more scheduled.

Vanderbilt had the first shot at White Station guard J.P. Prince. The son of a former college assistant is ranked the No. 29 prospect in America.

Last weekend, Prince visited North Carolina State officially where he was toured around by current Pack guard Julius Hodge.

Prince enjoyed the visit and it was a learning experience about the style, staff and players.

"With me and Jules hanging out, he was telling what to do to understand the concepts," Prince said. "He said that once you get it, you get a lot of easy buckets and said that being tall you can post up or drive by big guys. He said you didn't have to worry about set plays and loading up numbers.

Hodge has praised the players at both Vandy and NC State following his visits. He was also impressed with how the Pack pitched him in terms of his using his talents.

"I got to spend a lot of times with the guys. I got to see a lot of basketball and they pretty much know how they want to use me. The have a blueprint.

"They kind of have it like Julius. The way he plays is how I would play. The run off good defense and look to do certain things."

Prince has scheduled visits with Florida and Arizona. Memphis, the hometown school, remains in the mix as well.

Like an outstanding poker player, Prince isn't about to show his hand.

"I'm just going to play the field. I don't want to put a leader out there with all those visits left."
