Of price, SI noted:
Price didn't missing a beat moving from guard to center ahead of his senior campaign, providing stability amid Ohio State's quarterback uncertainty and setting up freshman J.K. Dobbins for a breakout.
The All-American First Team also includes two former Buckeye commitments in Florida punter Johnny Townsend, who left Ohio State at the altar on National Signing Day in 2013, and Auburn cornerback Carlton Davis, who decommitted from the Buckeyes in January 2015.
