The 6-6 ½, 190-pound Memphis White Station (Tenn.) point guard, who has drawn comparisons to former Memphis-area star Penny Hardaway for his body build and passing skills, has also favored Kentucky for a long time. However, the Wildcats have three point guards on their current roster – Patrick Sparks as well as freshmen Rajon Rondo and Ramel Bradley.
``They have a lot of guards and haven't offered yet, anyway," said Prince, the cousin of former Kentucky star Tayshaun Prince. "I want to be able to play the point wherever I go. I'm not cut out to play small forward in the SEC."
Prince also lists Memphis, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, UConn and Oklahoma as possibilities. Florida also recently offered a scholarship.
``Until I take my visits, I don't really have a leader," he added. "But I like N.C. State a lot because of their style of play and the way I've seen Julius Hodge be successful. Everybody always says how I need to gain so much weight, but I've seen how he hasn't gotten much bigger and it's worked for him."
Prince, who plans to play for Memphis YOMCA in July, said he's hoping to establish himself among the elite floor leaders in the class – beginning with today's NBA Camp.
``I want to show that I'm one of the top five players at my position and that I deserve to be mentioned for the McDonald's Game," Prince said. "I don't think there are any point guards who can do what I do. They all need to score points. I've never had to be a scorer, but I can score when I need to. I'd rather get 15 assists and win."
``All the schools are recruiting me as a point guard," he added. "That's all I've ever played. But some of the schools recruiting me are also saying that if something happens, they can put me other places. I'm not just stuck at one spot."
Prince hasn't scheduled any official visits despite already receiving a 19 on the ACT (to go along with his 3.0 GPA) and probably won't until the fall. He said he'll likely take unofficials to the local schools on his list – Memphis, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt.
