Prince underwent knee surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee and also had a microfracture procedure to stimulate the growth of new cartilage in October.

Prince was limited to individual passing drills but was cleared to run laterally by his doctor. That will allow him to participate in seven-on-seven drills. He will still be held out of all contact drills.

Richard Brehaut, Brett Hundley and Nick Crissman are the only scholarship quarterbacks participating in spring practice. Darius Bell is out following shoulder surgery.

A decision on the starting quarterback is expected to be made in August. Prince was the No. 1 quarterback heading into the 2010 season but started five games before being sidelined with the knee injury. Brehaut replaced him.
