The likely explanation is that the funds at Prudential have a sales charge associated with them and your employer has opted to "freeze" the old plan until the sales charge expires. THe Prudential funds are probably in a group annuity product or in Class B Shares. There is a sales charge that decreases each year and eventually goes away.
Your company switched to T. Rowe probably because its a no-load fund family without the sales charge and lower overall fund expenses.
It may be possible for you to move your funds within the prudential plan.
Ask your employer for a detailed explanation.
