Damian Prince: 2014 Prince of Offensive Tackles

Florida State Maryland

Mitch Stringer – USA TODAY Sports

The quest for a good offensive line never ends in the game of football. A good offensive line can turn a mediocre team into a good team and a good team into a championship contender. You always hear the old adage of winning “the war in the trenches.” One lucky team will win the services of 2014 tackle Damian Prince, who can turn their average offensive line into a great one. Prince is a 6-foot-5, 300 pound tank of an offensive lineman and has all the tools to be elite at the next level.

Prince goes to Bishop McNamara High School in Forestville, Maryland, which is right outside of Washington D.C. The McNamara Mustangs went just 4-6 last season, scoring around just 16 points per game, but you couldn’t blame Prince for that, as he is the 18th rated overall prospect in the country by ESPN and the tenth by Rivals. With Prince going into his final year of high school and many of his teammates also looking to play in college, the Mustangs are likely to see in improvement as well as a trip to the playoffs for the first time in the class of 2014′s high school football career.

It has been said that Prince’s top choices are Florida State, Alabama, and Ohio State, but he also hasn’t ruled out Maryland and Rutgers. Florida State has been approaching him the longest, but one can never rule out Alabama, as they are a traditional power and the two-time national champions. Ohio State can also never be ruled out until the decision is final.

It will be interesting to see what happens to Prince and the Mustangs through next season as well as see where he ends up going to school.
