It's Primetime, Baby

As Munir Prince starts to wade through offers and decide just where he wants to visit, the exciting prospect from St. Louis is beginning to figure out just where he will be traveling to. What has he been up to in the off-season and what locales does he plan to visit in the near future? Furthermore, does he still have interest in the Big Red?

DeSmet Jesuit High School star runningback Munir "Primetime" Prince is continuing preparations.  Not only for the recruiting and football seasons that lie ahead, but Munir is also going to be running track for his school.  "I've been lifting weights on the weight program and put on 10 pounds, I'm getting ready for track season too," he said.  Prince runs the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes for DeSmet Jesuit.  Much like fellow DeSmet star Paddy Mullen, Prince is continuing to find new offers, his most recent being out of the Big XII.  "It was from Kansas and I think that's my most recent offer.  I think that was about a month ago," said Prince.

Munir is starting to get all of his ducks in a row as far as unofficial visits go since, naturally, he's going to have to start putting down some ideas on where he'd like to visit for the red carpet official treatment.  Currently, he's got three schools down on the recruitment trail.  "I'm going to visit Notre Dame this weekend for their Junior Day and during the summer time I'm going to visit Nebraska and Northwestern," he said.  Prince commented that Nebraska has been keeping in good contact with him and he was even able to talk to the head man himself.  "I have placed a few calls.  One time, I got in contact with Coach Callahan, he just said they were interested and they liked my running style.  We talked about my grades and how everything was going," said Prince.

Phone calls aren't the only way the Cornhuskers are letting Munir know they want his signature.  Prince talks about how he'll receive a large envelope filled with handwritten letters by every Nebraska coach from Bill Callahan on down.  Certainly that kind of attention has got to make anyone take notice.  So even with all of the effort that Nebraska is putting into recruiting Mr. Prince, is the feeling mutual in his interest?  "Nebraska's in my top three college choices along with Notre Dame and Iowa," said Prince.

We'll continue to follow Munir throughout track season, the summertime recruiting trips and his eventual senior season where, most certainly, magic can happen for Primetime.
