UCLA crowns Prince as quarterback

April 30, 2009 | 10:54 am

Prince-ucla Kevin Prince today was named UCLA's No. 1 quarterback by Coach Rick Neuheisel, confirming what had been obvious throughout spring practice.

Prince, who will be a redshirt freshman in the fall, spent most of spring practice almost exclusively working with the first-team offense. His performance was spotty at times, including missing his first six passes -- one of which was intercepted -- in the spring game. But he also demonstrated a strong and accurate arm and was quick to grasp the offense.
