In Depth: Reid Prince

Former Baylor offensive lineman Joe DeWoody knows a thing or two about playing in the trenches for Coach Guy Morriss. Thee Bears Den is proud to have DeWoody on board as a guest publisher. See what DeWoody has to say about Baylor signee Reid Prince only in Thee Bears Den!

As one of Coach Guy Morriss' early commitments for the 2006 signing class; Reid Prince (6-4, 255, 5.2) is no stranger to success on the football field. Reid was an anchor on the offensive line for Highland Park's Class 4A Division I state champion team, which averaged 490.5 yards and 48.1 points per game.

The All-District, All-Area, and All-State lineman was the Bears third commitment of the recruiting season, choosing Baylor over both TCU and SMU.

While a little undersized at 255, Reid has the build and frame size that will allow him to put on good quality weight. He also is known for his excellent footwork, a skill that is hard to teach lineman.

The opportunity to play close to home for an up and coming program like Baylor, and the relationships he developed with the coaching staff, are what enticed Reid to choose the Bears.

Reid joins former Highland Park alum and All-American punter, Daniel Sepulveda in the quest to lead the Bears to their first Bowl game since 1994. Highland Park has established a rich history of winning throughout the years. It is exactly this tradition that Daniel and new teammate Reid hope to establish at Baylor.

"At Highland Park it was all about working hard, and doing the little things right" comments Sepulveda, "the wins will come if you have everything else in place."

Sepulveda states, "Reid is a nice kid; he seems to have good morals and a strong work ethic."

Look for Reid to be a contributor on the offensive line in the years to come.
