It was just two weeks ago that Austintown Fitch DL Billy Price told Jeremy that he wouldn't decide on a college until his senior year was over. Apparently, that timetable changed as Price confirmed to Elevenwarriors.com that he has committed to Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes after a weekend trip to Columbus.
Price, a 6-4/305 two way lineman, is one of the best players in the state for the class of 2013. He was always thought to be a Buckeye lean, but after Tatgate went down and Jim Tressel stepped down as head coach, he was a little more open to hearing from other schools. When Urban Meyer was named head coach, the full court press was once again put on the Youngstown stand out and after the junior's visit to Columbus on Saturday, he knew for sure Ohio State was where he wanted to be.
This is a huge pick up for Ohio State as Price is an excellent player who can make an immediate impact in Columbus. He is set to play defensive line for the Buckeyes, but is talented enough on offense to fill the void there as well if need be. Price becomes the third verbal commit for Urban Meyer in the class of 2013, joining ATH Jalin Marshall and DB Cameron Burrows in what is the ground work for a possible top class in the entire country.
Stay tuned as 11W will have more on the commitment of Price and the class of 2013 recruiting in the near future.
