NU Offers Mo-Town Standout

Ever since Jodan Price gave a big performance at Northwestern's Elite Camp in June, the NU coaches kept their eye on the standout. NU associate head coach Tavaras Hardy got a glimpse of Price at the LeBron James Camp, and was impressed again. Soon after the camp, Northwestern offered the three-star forward.

Price (6-6, 175) now holds offers from Northwestern, DePaul, Minnesota, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and others.

In June, Price made a strong impression on Northwestern coaches with a breakout performance at their camp. It just so happens that Northwestern also made an impression on Price.

"It was a good experience," Jodan Price said of Northwestern camp. "I got to see some of the campus when I was there. I got to meet with all the coaches. It was a good experience getting the offer. The coaches seem really interested and like my game. He said I was the best player at the camp."

For Price, a number of things standout with Northwestern. The main influence is Tavaras Hardy—Price's lead recruiter.

"I like the coaches," he said. "I got a good relationship with Coach Hardy. They have good academics there and the school is right by Chicago, so they have a lot of connections, which makes it a plus."

Price is still evaluating his options and has not set a list of favorites, but has a good idea of where the Wildcats stand.

"Northwestern is up there—they'll definitely be in a top-five," Price said. "They're in good standing."

In the meantime, Price is planning on making visits to each option—a major part of his evaluation process. After that, he'll be closer to a decision.

"I'll make a top-five, then make a decision in Nov ember," he said.

Price hopes those visits will help him narrow down his list of schools. He did admit, visiting Northwestern again is a priority.

As a junior, Price averaged 8.6 points per game while helping Detroit County Day to a 23-4 overall record and a deep playoff run.
