But it turns out that size was not his only obstacle to success with the Nittany Lions.
Price took a redshirt in 2008 then played sparingly in his first season of eligibility last fall. He saw action in six games in 2009 but did not make a catch.
In the meantime, according to team sources, he encountered serious academic issues.
Those same sources say it all led to Price recently asking for and receiving a release from his scholarship with the Nittany Lions. It is not clear where he will end up.
Price had two catches for 26 yards in April's Blue-White Game.
