73 Days To Purdue Football: J.J. Prince

Purdue may have its starter at right tackle if Prince can step up.

Purdue has a virtual war for starting spots along the offensive line, but one player has a slight edge at tackle over some of the others

2014 Projection: Possible starter on Offensive Line

You could do worse than getting an offensive lineman from Southlake Carroll HS in Texas, which is one of the best big school programs in the state. He was an academic all-state selection and a starter on a team that went undefeated and won the Class 5A state championship in 2011, so he has a championship pedigree with him.

Prince just wants a chance to start. He played a little bit last season as Purdue looked to find some sort of consistency along the line, but there were still problems. He entered the spring as the No.1 player at right tackle and with David Hedelin sitting for the first three games he has a very good chance to establish himself early on. As he says in the video, he wants to compete.
