Price enjoys TCU visit

Small forward Hudson Price from Orlando, Florida was offered by TCU earlier this month. He is a 6'7 wing who averaged 19 points per game this season.

Hudson Price won a lot of basketball games in his high school career.

But there were only so many minutes and shots to go around.

Until his senior season, Hudson, the son of former NBA star Mark Price, was not able to consistently showcase the elite offensive skills he possessed.

TCU was the first Division I program to offer Price when head coach Trent Johnson took a trip to Orlando to see the 6'7 small forward.

Price took a trip early this week to Fort Worth to take a closer look at the TCU program. He arrived Monday with his father and stayed until the game against Texas.

"It was a really good trip overall. It was my first official visit, and there was not really anything that I didn't like," Price explained.

"The first day I met the whole coaching staff. Some of the coaches took me around campus, and we got to see all the school buildings and all the dorms," Price said.

"We checked out the practice facility, and I got to meet Mr. Del Conte and talk to him for a little bit which was cool. On the second day, we got a tour of the new football stadium and everything. I met with Coach Johnson for a little while before the Texas game."

Price says he has established good relationships with assistant coaches Brent Scott and Donny Guerinoni.

"Coach G is the assistant that has come down to Orlando a few times. Coach Johnson is looking for a couple of guys that are willing to come in and contribute right away. He coaches kids that play really hard and want to win."

Price said it was hard to single out one thing about the tour that caught his eye because the entire campus was impressive.

"Everything was really top-notch. I mean it's just really nice."

Price, known for his shooting ability and sneaky athleticism that helps him finish at the rim, says he will think about relationships.

"When it comes down to it, the people are [most important]. It's my teammates and the coaches. A school can be the nicest school in the country, but if you don't get along well with the people there, it can be pretty miserable."

Price played his senior season at The First Academy whose season ended early with after a big upset early in the playoffs.

With the season now over, Hudson Price said he will not drag out his decision.

"Right now I don't plan on carrying out this process too long. I will take a few other visits to some other schools, and then I'll try to narrow it down pretty quickly and make a decision," Price said.

Price would give TCU good size on the wing, and he would also give the Frogs another outside shooting threat.

He averaged 19 points and 7.8 rebounds per game this season.
