Joe Gaiter: What was your recruitment experience?
Prince Moss: My recruitment experience was pretty nice my first offer was from Snead State Community and after I received that offer more Juco’s started to roll in. My time at Iowa Central was a great first year learning experience, the environment was totally different for me but it was also a great way for me to see a different perspective of school.
Joe Gaiter: What made you choose Grambling State University?
Prince Moss: Grambling State was never an option for me until Head Coach Donte Jackson made his way into the SWAC. Coach Jack recruited me out of high school when he spent his time coaching at Stillman College where he won multiple Championships. He tried to get me to come there straight out of high school but my specific words to him were “I’m sorry coach but I’m trying to go Division 1”. I never received a D1 offer until after my first year of Juco and that FIRST and ONLY offer was The Grambling State University. Two weeks before reporting back to school I got a phone call from Coach Jackson and his words were “I’m D1 now so let’s do it”. He brought me in on a visit that same week and I loved it and now I can say I attend the best HBCU there is.

Joe Gaiter: What has been your contribution to the team this year?
Prince Moss: My contribution to the team this year was to play my role on both ends of the court, knock down my open shots, and bring the most energy to the court everyday to make sure the team does the same.
Joe Gaiter: Grambling was 17-15 last season. What does your team need to do to win more games next season?
Prince Moss: With most of our seniors leaving we have to step up and lock in this next season to prepare ourselves to run the SWAC. We have to practice harder and make sure all of our guys are putting in the extra work over the summer and before season starts.
Joe Gaiter: What is life like for you off the court?
Prince Moss: Life for me off the court is good. I’m with my brothers everyday either putting in work or just with family chilling.
