Michigan, Georgia, Syracuse, St. Bonaventure, Penn St, and Ohio St, but not lately since the new guy (Matta) has taken the job,” Kendric Price responded when asked who his suitors were. “Right now, I like Michigan and Georgia, but I’m still wide open.”

Price had a solid showing at the Adidas Superstar Camp in Suwanee, Ga. two weeks ago and is on the New England Playaz squad participating in the Reebok East tournament being held on the campus of FDU in Teaneck, New Jersey.

“I think I can play better,” said Price. “I’ve been talking to a lot of people who’ve been saying I’ve been playing well, but I know what I can do.”

“Everything needs to be improved on, but mainly (ball handling), so I can get wherever I want to go on the floor at any time,” Price replied when asked to describe his game. “(Athleticism is) probably one of the strengths of my game. A lot of people sleep on me because they figure, he’s 6’9, he should be able to dunk anyway, but I can jump higher than a lot of 6’9 people, and go over the top.”

Price has the ability to play both the SF and PF spots in college with his skills and size. So what sets Michigan and Georgia above the rest?

“Tradition (with Michigan),” said Price. “With Georgia, they said we’ll have the nation’s best recruiting class with Louis Williams and Mike Mercer.”

“I’m really cool with (assistant) coach (Desmond) Oliver,” Price said about Georgia’s new assistant coach who had been recruiting Price for the University of Rhode Island before joining Dennis Felton’s staff in Athens.

Ann Arbor has a draw of it’s own in sophomore C Courtney Sims, who became friends with Price during their prep days in Massachusetts.

“I’m definitely going to make a decision soon,” said Price. “I’m just trying to see how these next few tournaments go. I do want to go on a few visits.”

Price has yet to visit both his leaders, but has made unofficial trips to UConn, BC, and Providence.
