Prince: 'I'm Hoping to Have a Good Time'

One down, three to go for J.P. Prince. <P>

One down, three to go for J.P. Prince.

The versatile 6-6 ½, 190-pound senior point guard from Memphis White Station High (Tenn.) visited Vanderbilt the last weekend of August and will head to N.C. State this weekend for his second of four scheduled official trips.

Now that the Wolfpack have got 6-8 Ben McCauley in the fold, Prince becomes their priority – along with combo forward Brandon Costner, who is still a primary target because his game differs from McCauley's.

Prince, who has a 3.0 GPA and a 19 on the ACT, has also set up visits to Arizona for Sept. 25 and for Florida the first weekend in October.

"I'm really looking forward to the visit this weekend," Prince said. "I'm very interested in seeing the campus and meeting the players."

"Them getting in early definitely helped," he added. "The way they play and seeing Julius Hodge and the way he plays a point forward type role."

Prince said he had a great time on his trip to Vanderbilt, but admitted that the two visits will be different. He's been to Vanderbilt before and knows most of the Commodores players, where he really hasn't met any of the Wolfpack players yet.

"I'm hoping to have a good time," Prince said. "I can't wait to talk to the players and hang out with Julius Hodge."

Prince said that the only other school he's considering in addition to Vanderbilt, N.C. State, Arizona and Florida is nearby Memphis, but he probably won't take an official visit to the Tigers because he's so familiar with the campus and the program.
