Offensive line prospect Damian Prince is Maryland's latest five-star signee, but that doesn't mean other schools weren't hot in pursuit.

After signing with Maryland on National Signing Day, Prince sat down in CSN's studio with former NFL star Brian Mitchell on SportsTalk Live to talk about his recruitment and his future in college football.

Mitchell asked about the recruiting process and what visits stuck out to Prince the most. His answer, with a smile, was about when he visited Florida State. For a time, the Seminoles were considered the frontrunner.

"In Tallahassee, being a college town, as soon as I landed it was like everybody knew who I was, you know?" Prince recalled to Mitchell.

"'Oh, you're Damian! You're Damian!' Trying to get your autograph and like me, coming from here, that don't really happen a lot so, you know, I'm getting off the plane signing autographs like I already made it or something. So that was like crazy for me."

Even with that, though, Prince chose Maryland last week, becoming head coach Randy Edsall's lone five-star signee from the Class of 2014. Watch the video above for more.
