Prince 100 percent, but no word on starter
By Peter Yoon
Coach Rick Neuheisel said Thursday that Kevin Prince was 100 percent recovered from his sprained shoulder but held true to his word that he wouldn't name a starting quarterback for Saturday's game against Texas at the Rose Bowl.
Prince, the starter in Week 1 against Houston, left that game after taking a hard hit early in the second quarter and sat out last week's victory over San Jose State. He said he wasn't fully recovered earlier this week but went through a full practice every day and looked good throwing the ball on Wednesday and Thursday.
"He’s 100 percent and he’s ready to go," Neuheisel said. "So is Richard [Brehaut] and we’ll have them both available."
Brehaut has passed for 409 yards and three touchdowns in Prince's absence and he's also rushed for 131yards and a touchdown. But Prince started at Texas last season and led the Bruins to a 34-12 victory. He had a 38-yard touchdown run in that game and directed the UCLA run game to a 264 yard-performance.
