From the Iowa site...Munir has re-opened his recruiting. Iowa is still his #1 but Notre Dame, Nebraska, Michigan State, and Northwestern are now also receiving consideration.

From the Nebraska site...Prince runs the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes for DeSmet Jesuit. His most recent offer is from Kansas. He also claims offers from Notre Dame, Iowa, Michigan State, Nebraska, Northwestern and Ohio State.

I will try and confirm that offer from the Buckeyes...I don't think we have actually offered at this point.

Missouri’s Munir Prince is one of the top athletes in the nation. Prince was offered a scholarship by Iowa before his junior year and the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder, from St. Louis (DeSmet Jesuit) quickly accepted the Hawkeye offer. Prince has since taken a step back and opened his recruitment back up. We caught up with Munir and asked him why he had a change of heart.

“I just felt that I needed to be true to myself and check out all the universities that are interested in me.” Munir Prince said.

“I wanted to be open to all the opportunities that might come my way. When Iowa offered me a scholarship, I was excited, but after the dust settled and I went through my junior year, I began to feel like I rushed things a little bit.”

Prince has been a varsity starter since his freshman year. As a freshman, Munir was a special team’s standout for Seffner (Fla.) Armwood and then moved to St. Louis, Mo. and made an immediate impact as a running back and defensive back at DeSmet Jesuit.

“I think I rushed for about 1,500 yards and 17 touchdowns as a sophomore,” said Prince.

“I also had 3 pics on defense and returned a couple of those for a touchdown. I think I had about 30 solo tackles as well.”

Prince had to fight a bit of the injury bug this past season and he finished with just under 1,000 yards rushing.

“I finished this past season with 926 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns. I did have a few injuries but I still was named All-Metro Player of the Year.”

The injuries that Prince had to fight through didn’t stop several top schools from offering Prince a scholarship.

Notre Dame, Iowa, Ohio State, Michigan State, Nebraska, Northwestern and Kansas have all offered full rides. We asked Prince if he had a leader for his services.

“It’s definitely Notre Dame right now,” said Prince. “I’m big into academics and Notre Dame has the best of both worlds. Notre Dame has incredible academics and one of the most storied football programs in the country.

“I’m looking for a career in Sports Medicine and Notre Dame is looking like the best bet right now but I’m also considering Iowa, Nebraska, Michigan State and Nebraska.”

Prince told Scout.com that he will be in South Bend this weekend for an unofficial visit with the Irish. Munir said his summer plans will include camp stops at both Northwestern and Nebraska.

Looks like Notre Dame leads at this point.

Mr. Such and Such
i said months ago that the resurgence of ND is going to affect iowa recruiting, as well as michigan. both schools pull a lot of talent from the illinois/indiana region, and ND getting back in the mix is going to make it tougher on them.
