Most recently, he was schooled by Taco Charlton in The Game, allowing multiple sacks. Prince and the offensive line have their worked cut out for them against a Clemson team that registered 46 sacks this season, second most in the nation. In a press conference Wednesday, Urban noted the extra effort Prince in particular was putting in to elevate his game, “I’ve never seen a guy work harder in two weeks since that last game…I mean, ridiculous. Even on days off, he’s coming here and getting extra work.” Tim May with more on the extra prep Prince is putting in.
