Being athletic is always a valuable commodity for a quarterback, especially when he has to escape a pass rush. When you combine that athleticism with the ability to throw the ball, then you’ve got a strong quarterback prospect.
Kal Prince, son of former Kentucky football player and Owensboro Head Coach, Joe Prince, is one of the best in Kentucky in 2011.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect can play on either side of the ball, but his play-making ability makes him valuable on the offensive side of the ball.
“Kal creates,” said his father, coach Prince. “What I mean by that is that he makes things happen. His best asset is how he can create,” said Prince.
On the other hand, sometimes the younger Prince can over-do things. “His number one problem is trying to create all the time. He’s always been able to make plays. He just needs to work on his decision making,” Prince finished.
In leading the Owensboro Red Devils to a 9-3 record as a junior, Prince had over 1,800 yards of offense rushing and throwing. He also had 20 touchdowns, total.
While his numbers aren’t eye-popping, his athleticism stands out. He runs the forty (yard dash) in 4.6 seconds and he ran the short shuttle drill in an amazing 3.91 seconds at the US Army Combine.
Prince is likely to be a heavily recruited prospect from several regional schools. Currently he doesn’t hold any offers, but he has received quite a bit of interest from Western Kentucky, Wake Forest, Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati, Duke and Notre Dame.
