Last weekend Jeremiah Price took an official visit to Oklahoma State and gave them a verbal commitment before leaving town. This weekend Price was in Tampa for a visit that looked like would be canceled. After giving it some thought the 6'4, 245 pound defensive end took the official visit to South Florida, but was it enough to change his mind?
"It was a nice visit." Said Price, "George Selvie was my host, he's a character! He and I got along real well. He showed me around and we had fun."
Price made it clear he is still committed to Oklahoma State, but admitted this visit made an impact.
"I'm committed to Oklahoma State, I'm still somewhat considering USF. I don't really know how to say it."
On Wednesday Jeremiah Price will sign his letter of intent to the university he will attend for the next 2-3 years. Price has 3 years to play two, meaning he has a redshirt year if needed.
"I will have my final decision by tomorrow. I'm going to go home think about it, talk it over and choose the school that fits me and is the best place for me."
"I'll think it over, right now I'm leaning toward Oklahoma State. I had a great visit, great people and I got along with the staff."
"That's what makes it hard. I know they (USF) have a very good team, they are young and will be good for years to come. I could have a chance to compete and see the field if I were to come to Tampa. I like what they have to offer."
Last season Price finished the season with 55 tackles, 5 for loss, 9.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. He's a speed rusher with a blazing 4.7 40 time. Coming out of Collins high school in Mississippi, he did not make grades and enrolled at Jones Junior College, a move that changed his life.
"I changed from when I first got here…I changed a lot. I learned simple things from the coaches here. Like my attitude changed, got serious with school, just grew up. I knew if I didn't get it done here I was getting sent home."
Price got his life in order and now has an opportunity to play for a major D1 school. The question is, will it be Oklahoma State or USF. We'll find out tomorrow.
Did official visit to USF sway JUCO DE?
