Recruiting: Cowboys Get Defensive End Price

While we've talked to a number of prospects around the country hung up in airports because of the weather and weather related delays. Jones County (Miss.) Community College defensive end Jeremiah Price is already in a hotel relaxing and waiting on a flight back home in the morning that will be the final leg of his official visit to Oklahoma State. He'll be going home committed to the Cowboys.

"Yes sir, I committed to Oklahoma State," said Price. "I had a visit set up to South Florida, but there is no need to take it. Oklahoma State was great. I liked the players, the coaches, the facilities, and it all fit me well. They have taken good care of me with this snow storm and have me in a hotel and a flight for in the morning."

Price said his host on his visit was Cowboy star running back Dantrell Savage.

"I'm from Mississippi and I knew him," explained Price. "He played in Mississippi (Gulf Coast C.C.) and I requested him. He showed me around everything and it was all good. My recruiting coach is Joe Wickline. He is very interesting. There is never a dull moment with him."

One reason the Cowboys probably were recruiting Price is that he plays with excitement. The 6-4, 245-pound defensive end has 4.7 speed and this season finished with 52 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, and a whopping 9.5 sacks. He also caused 3 fumbles.

"I'm very athletic and I try to do the best that I can on every snap of the ball," said Price. "I'm really energetic and there is never a dull moment with me on the field. I am either making a tackle or doing something to the offense, causing some kind of commotion."

Price will enroll in January and be in Stillwater for offseason workouts and spring football. He said he plans on a major that will allow him to get into coaching football when he is through playing.
