Munir Prince Transferring to Mizzou

munir prince 01Munir Prince, who Charlie Weis once said possessed “whoosh” type speed, has decided to transfer from Notre Dame according to the St. Louis Dispatch.

DeSmet coach Pat Mahoney confirmed that Prince is transferring to Missouri after two seasons at Notre Dame, where he played running back and then cornerback. Prince is expected to play defensive back for the Tigers and, after sitting out next year, will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Prince played in 10 games at Notre Dame this fall and registered three tackles and one pass break-up.

Weis confirmed the transfer in a statement issued Tuesday.

“After talking with Munir, he decided he’d like to leave our football team and the University. I appreciate all Munir has done for our program and Notre Dame and wish him well in the future.”

Prince played running back as a true freshman and showed excellent speed, but was moved to cornerback last spring. In 10 games of action this year, Prince will likely be remembered for his infamous punt miscue against USC which set up the Trojans with their first scored and turned the momentum in the game. Still, Prince is a tremendously gifted athlete and would have given the Irish some much needed depth in the secondary this year.

  1. frank,

    1. we are sorry to lose munir prince and we wish him the best for his future.

    2. we have no doubt that the savage attacks on munir and certain other notre dame players in the old sbt and in certain notre dame fan websites played a key role in munir’s decision to transfer.

    3. we sincerely hope that, in the future,people will think more carefully before they launch these vicious attacks on notre dame coaches and student athletes.

    4. after all, munir and all of the fine members of notre dame’s football and other athletic teams are young and susceptible to vicious attacks, especially from sources claiming to be speaking for notre dame fans.

    5. fortunately, the old sbt and the writers who cover notre dame football will not writing any articles for the new sbt next season.

    congratlations on your fine article on a very delicate subject,
