Another OL Likes the Gators

David Price is an OL prospect from Jacksonville, Florida that likes Florida and many others.

Another standout from the city of Jacksonville is David Price. Price plays offensive tackle for Mandarin High School.

"David is an aggressive lineman that is quick off the ball and very physical," said Head Coach Richard Burnoski.. "He has a lot of hustle and heart. David is the type of kid that is always looking for a block. He could be a guard or tackle at the next level."

Price, 6-5 and 335 pounds, says he has verbal scholarship offers from Florida, FSU and North Carolina.

"Pull and trap blocking are what I do best," said Price. "I would rather play tackle but some schools are recruiting me as a guard."

Price has had the luxury to practice against a few DLs over the last few seasons that have made him a better player, Chris Anderson (FSU signee) and Marcus Thomas (DT that will is in the same class as Price). "I am a better player because of those two. They have really been a benefit to me because everyday, that is what I was up against for two years."

Anderson has already made his decision, as he picked the Seminoles. What will the big OL do? "Right now I am pretty open. I like Florida State, Florida, Miami, Southern Cal, Auburn, South Carolina, Central Florida and Syracuse. I think location will be important. I would like to stay in Florida but I am open to other places. I would also like to play in a scheme where they run the ball a little more."

Price is planning to camp this summer at Down and Dirty, Florida and Florida State.
