Norman North tight end Payton Prince weighs about the same as he did at the end of last season.

The way that weight is distributed, though, has changed quite a bit.

“My coaches have me on this diet. They don't want me to lose any muscle weight but to keep my muscle and lose the fat,” Prince said. “So it's not like I'm not eating. I'm actually eating a whole lot more. But instead of eating a bowl of cereal in the morning, I might eat six egg whites instead.

“At first, it was kind of tough but I've been doing it for about two months now and it gets easier.”

Prince is one of the top players at probably the deepest position in the state for the 2014 class. He comes in at No. 10 on The Oklahoman's newest Super 30 ranking of the state's top recruits for the class.

He already has offers from Tulsa and Memphis. Illinois and New Mexico have made contact in recent days, and Prince said he thinks offers may be close from those schools as well.
