National Signing Day 2014: Damian Prince commits to Maryland


Damian Prince became the latest top recruit to sign his name on the dotted line during National Signing Day, and the offensive tackle decided to stay in his home state and sign with the Maryland Terrapins.

Prince, who hails from Forestville, MD, was a standout at Bishop McNamara High School. He was the No. 3 offensive tackle in the nation and the No. 26-ranked player in the ESPN 300.

“As I stand here before you all today, I had a lot of thinking to do. I am very sure and very positive that I made a great and righteous decision. You kind of have to weed out what you feel is real, so I made the decision to go where I felt I can get the best out of my next four years of college football,” Prince said during his announcement.

Prince chose the Terrapins over the likes of Florida State, Florida and South Carolina.

Prince said that the Big Ten’s ability to produce NFL linemen was a big reason for his decision to stay in state and join the conference. He is also excited to have an opportunity to play immediately.
