Now about two weeks away from National Signing Day, programs are looking to position themselves with their main recruiting targets and get in a position to nab a few others.

The coaching change at Penn State and the hiring of coach James Franklin has shook things up for the Nittany Lions, who have now scored a visit from five-star offensive lineman Damian Prince, Mike Farrell of Rivals.com is reporting.

Prince has long been on Maryland's radar and, according to Farrell is in a good position to land the Bishop McNamara (Md.) senior. Rivals.com ranks Prince as the 20th best player in the country and the second best at his position.

Florida is also solidly in the hunt for Prince, according to Farrell, especially considering the recent flip of five-star cornerback Jalen Tabor from Arizona to Florida. The two are friendly and Tabor has been making the pitch for Prince to head to Gainesville, as well.
