There is no question that three-star quarterback Kevin Prince (6-2, 195, 4.7) from Encino (Calif.) Crespi is one of the fastest rising quarterbacks on the west coast. Though he is getting serious attention from schools coast-to-coast, Prince has narrowed down his college choice to UCLA and Washington.
Prince has taken two unofficial visits to UCLA in less than a week and on his first visit last Friday, he received the coveted offer he was hoping for.
The talented Crespi quarterback took another unofficial visit to UCLA today.
"The trip today (Monday August 1st) went great," Prince said. "I went and visited UCLA on Friday, but today was more like a meet and great with all the coaches.
"Today's visit was more like a junior day," Prince said. "I didn't commit because I have to decide if I want to go on a (LDS) mission or not. I need to make my mission decision before I decide what college to attend.
"I don't really have a timeframe for my decision," Prince said. "UCLA offered me for the 2010 class. The reason is they don't want two quarterbacks in the same class.
"They want quarterback separation to avoid a quarterback controversy like Drew Olson and Matt Moore."
"All the (UCLA) coaches were there and they were happy to see me and I was happy to see them," Prince said. "It was a great experience. I also saw the facilities again.
"I talked more with Coach Karl Dorrell more on Friday," Prince said. "Today Coach Dorrell wanted me to get to know (offensive coordinator) Jay Norvell and the other offensive coaches better.
"Coach Norvell is great," Prince said. "He has a great personality and is really upbeat. He really seems to love what he's doing.
Right now it is a two-team battle for the services of Prince besides UCLA, the Washington Huskies are the other team in the hunt.
Though Washington just received the pledge of Carson, Calif., quarterback Dominique Blackman that bit of news doesn't trouble Prince at all.
"Washington told me they are going to sign two quarterbacks this season so it didn't surprise me," Prince said. "I thought Dominique would commit to Washington.
"Going into a class with another quarterback doesn't bother me at all because you have to compete and beat somebody out eventually.
"If I do decide to go on a mission," Prince said. "I could still end up at Washington. They will take me either way so Washington is definitely an option.
Prince was an all-league selection as a junior after throwing for 1,422 yards and 12 touchdowns.
