Price Taking His Time With Recruiting

Defensive back/athlete Taylor Price of Hilliard (Oh.) Darby caught lots of people's attention when he ran two 4.29 40 times at OSU camp. Price is receiving interest from some local schools, and we caught up with him to find out his thoughts on recruiting. Read on for more.

With all the big name prospects in attendance at Ohio State's camp this year, it came as a surprise when a player who was relatively unknown turned in the fastest 40 time. That player would be Hilliard Darby DB Taylor Price, who posted a blazing 4.29 40 time -- twice.

Price, who also camped this year at Cincinnati and Akron, is getting attention from several schools. Price put up a 4.25 40 at Akron this weekend and received an offer from the Zips.

"Ohio State is No. 1, Minnesota and Michigan State," Price said. "Pitt and West Virginia are sending letters and e-mails."

Price (6-2, 195) played on both sides of the ball last year. He worked out at camp as a corner.

"I played at wingback," he said. "I play corner. Some colleges projected me as a corner."

Price is flexible as to what position he plays on the next level.

"I can play safety, corner and receiver and maybe linebacker," he said. "I really don't care. I will play corner again and will be a wing again."

Most schools are taking a wait-and-see approach with Price, and Price is thinking of doing the same.

"I have been thinking about waiting," he said. "I want to see what happens. They are all telling me they want to see the first couple games."

Price also talked about what players impressed him at OSU camp. 

"Ray Small really impressed me," he said. "What an athlete. Great speed. Royce Adams had such great hips and technique. Those were the players that stood out to me."

Price also plays baseball but says he will likely run track next year. He has focused on the weightroom in the winter. Grades do not seem to be a problem.

"I took my SAT (1020) and my core is fine," he said.
