The Price is Right

The price was right for Jeremy Price of Columbia Decatur (Ga.) High. The 6-foot-8 junior gave a local school a verbal commitment on Monday.

Jeremy Price, a 6-foot-8, 255-pound junior at Columbia Decatur (Ga.), committed to Georgia on Monday.

``It was all about the support they showed me and how much they worked with me as far as my academics were concerned," Price said.

Price (, No. 27) averaged 17 points and 12.4 rebounds per game as a junior.

``I was ready now," Price added. "I really didn't want to wait any longer. I had my heart set on where I wanted to go."

This is a huge pickup for Dennis Felton and the Bulldogs staff. Price was also considering Alabama, Kansas and Virginia Tech.

Price, 17, has the size, can score in the low post and can also step out and knock down shots from mid range. He still needs to work on his footwork and become a better shot-blocker.
