It has been well documented that the quarterback class of 2008 in California is an impressive lot indeed. Keep your eye on another emerging signal-caller from the Golden State and he is Kevin Prince (6-2, 185, 4.7) from Encino (Calif.) Crespi.
Prince flew under the radar this spring because he missed the NIKE Camps and the Elite 11 camp.
The reason why he missed the Los Angeles NIKE Camp was because he was scheduled to go to the NIKE Camp in Palo Alto and then there were transportation problems so ended up missing both the Palo Alto NIKE Camp and the Elite 11.

Prince has been busy making up for lost time and showed himself well this last week at the adidas 7-on-7 tournament at UCLA.
Though Prince and his teammates only started working out together two days before the tournament they ended up being runners-up to a disciplined and surprising Poway, Calif., team lead by four-star tight end Ryan Deehan.
Prince and his teammates will be performing at the NIKE 7-on-7 tournament this Friday against fierce competition.
On the recruiting front, Prince acknowledges offers from Washington and BYU. There is another school that he would love to hear from.
"I hope I get an offer from UCLA soon," Prince said. "I went to their camp for one-day a couple of weeks ago and after that UCLA wants to meet with me and my family.
"UCLA told me they would be interested in signing me for 2010 if I was going on my (LDS) mission," Prince said. "I'm planning on meeting with Coach Karl Dorrell this week.
"I have been thinking about talking to (UCLA QB) Ben Olson his experience about going on a mission and how it affects football."
Prince is also very interested Washington and BYU.
"I like Washington because they're in the Pac 10 and play a challenging schedule," Prince said. "Washington has the No. 1 toughest schedule this season. I also like Coach Tyrone Willingham and everything he stands for.
"I also like BYU's coaching staff, the standards they hold," Prince said. "I'm also a member of the church they are affiliated with."
