Recruiting: Price Looking To Prove More

Linebacker Hunter Price of Round Rock (McNeil), Texas, was another attendee at Oklahoma State's Junior Day last Saturday. The 6-1, 205-pound Price is coming off a season where he had 90 total tackles, five sacks, nine tackles for loss, two fumbles caused, and an interception that he returned 45 yards for a touchdown against Belton. All of that and Price is hardly satisfied.

"I just feel like my junior season that I should have done better," said Price. "I need to play better. I need to show more this season to myself, my teammates, and to schools that are interested in me. I don't want my recruiting to last up until signing day and I don't think it will, but I want the chance to prove myself as a better player."

You have to admire that as Price has pretty solid measurables that have drawn recruiting attention from the likes of Oklahoma State and LSU among others. He has a best of 4.62 in the forty, a 250-pound max on the bench press, and a 400-pound max on the squat. He also lists a 31-inch vertical jump.

As for his trip to check out Oklahoma State last weekend, that was a positive.

"I really liked it. The facilities were incredible and going on that tour with the hard hat and the safety glasses that was a new experience for me," described Price. "The players and hearing from them made me feel like they were a close knit group, family. I grew up in a small town so I am comfortable with that."

Price said he plans on majoring in business management and as far as what he is looking for in a school, it starts with education.

"I want a school that won't hand it to me but will make sure I have what I need to get a solid education because that is what it is all about," said Price. "How close the team is will be a big factor. Do they hang out together off the field as well as stay together on it. Then the distance from my house for my mom and step dad. Those are the things that are important."
