Big Get for Dawgs - Price Commits

Georgia got huge news on Thursday when Archer OL E.J. Price picked them over a slew of schools.

E.J. Price is considered on of the top offensive tackles in the country, and he picked Georgia on Thursday according to his coach Andy Dyer.

Price was in Athens for practice on Thursday and after the Bulldogs wrapped up, he pulled out a Georgia hat, telling the offensive staff and coach Mark Richt that he was "ready to commit to the G."

Price said the he had made up his mind around lunchtime Thursday and after watching Nick Chubb run during practice, he knew that Georgia was the right decision.

"He's raw, but he's got so much upside," Scout National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons said of the four-star. "He is still learning offensive tackle that shows. He flashes his ability at times, and there is no denying his quick feet, natural bend and length.

Price said the decision came down to Michigan and Georgia but the Bulldogs felt like the "best decision for [him]."

Price is the Bulldogs' eighth commitment of the 2016 recruiting cycle. He's one of three massive offensive lineman committed to Georgia - the other two being Ben Cleveland and Aaron Dowdell. Price is considered a four-star prospect by and is the No. 57 overall player in the country. Georgia now has four top 100 players in the country committed to them, and are considered a favorite to sign No. 3 Derrick Brown and No. 44 Julian Rochester at this time.

Now that he has made his decision, Price is ready to do a little recruiting of his own.

"I'm trying to get everyone to commit to the G," Price said.

He noted that guys like DT Tyler Clark and DT Julian Rochester are especially high on his list of guys he'd like to wear the red and black with him.

Price transferred from Central Gwinnett over the winter break. He joined one of the top overall programs in the state in Archer this spring. Simmons says he's still got work to do, but that Georgia is getting a great player in Price.

"He needs to add mass and get stronger, Simmons said. "But the kid has star written all over him down the road."
