Prince hopes for big sophomore season

Georgia Military WR Rashun Prince (6-2, 180) put up modest numbers as a freshman in 2009, but with his size, speed and smooth routes, he hopes to have a much better 2010 season. spoke to the talented wideout recently and he talked about recruiting as well as what his best attributes on the field are...

Prince prepped at Toms River (NJ) East High School and received scholarship offers from D-2 and D-3 programs looking to add his talents to their program, but he decided to head the JC route in order to give himself a chance to play at the highest level possible.

"I always felt I could play at a higher level, so I decided to come down here and play," Prince told "I liked the atmosphere down here and I had family down here, so I came down and got started."

As a freshman last fall, Prince put up modest numbers in the Bulldogs' run-oriented offense, hauling in six receptions for 144 yards and one touchdown while seeing spot duty in the three and four-receiver sets.

"We were pretty conservative last year because we had some quarterback issues," Prince said. "I think this fall we will be a little bit more explosive and that we'll be more of a threat to throw it down the field more and that's what I'm looking forward to.

"I'm a guy who can get down the field or go across the middle, but I struggled a little against press-coverage, so I've been working on my releases off the line and being a little more physical.

"I think I can be successful in any offense, so now it's just about going out and showing what I can do."

So far, recruiting has been a mixed bag for Prince, getting interest during the spring, but it hasn't resulted in an scholarship offers to this point.

"Middle Tennessee and Southern Miss both seem to like me, but they haven't offered or anything," Prince said. "I'd love to head back home and play for Rutgers, so I'm trying to get in contact with the staff there to let them know I'm down here."

Prince is a very good student and was a full-qualifier out of high school. He'll finish up his AA degree in December and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
