Four-star offensive tackle E.J. Price committed to USC on Wednesday, making the announcement live on 11Alive News.
Price is the 99th ranked recruit in the class of 2016 and eighth-best player at offensive tackle, according to Scout.com. The Lawrenceville, Ga. native and former quarterback was an Under Armour All-America selection this season.
Here’s a look at Scout’s analysis of Price:
“Price grew up playing quarterback, so he is athletic and very light on his feet at offensive tackle. His frame is exactly what you look for in an offensive tackle. What stands out a lot about his Price is his coordination and ability to move in space. On the line of scrimmage, he is known for his strong punch knocking defenders off the ball. His best football is still ahead of him. He has so many traits to like, but still so much room to grow.”
Price decided to head across the country with his decision, spurning offers from in-state program Georgia and SEC-rival Auburn.
