Eleanor Roosevelt (Md.) offensive lineman Isaiah Prince committed to Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide just five days ago. However, his commit may not be as firm as many thought.
According to ESPN recruiting analyst Tom VanHaaren, Prince will visit Maryland this weekend and announce his decision on National Signing Day (Feb. 4). Prince is also considering Ohio State and will make his final choice known at 9:30 a.m. at his high school.
Prince is one of the top offensive linemen in the 2015 class. The Eleanor Roosevelt senior is rated as the 105th best player in 247Sports’ Composite rankings and the seventh-best offensive tackle. Prince is also tabbed as the top player in the state of Maryland. If coach Randy Edsall and his staff are able to get Prince to flip, it would give the Terrapins three of the top 10 players in Maryland with Quince Orchard defensive tackle Adam McLean (2) and Linganore offensive lineman E.J. Donahue (8) being the other two.
For the second consecutive year, National Signing Day could be a huge day for the Terps. In 2014, Maryland secured a commitment from highly-touted Bishop McNamara offensive tackle Damian Prince.
The Terps are currently rated as the 41st-best recruiting class in the country and the sixth-best in the Big Ten. A commitment from Prince would certainly boost those rankings.
