Texas QB On Wake's Radar

6'2 gunslinger Tanner Price out of Westlake High School in Austin, Texas made the trip to Winston-Salem last weekend for camp and he didn't disappoint.

Tanner Price put on quite a display last weekend at Wake Forest. Price displayed a strong and accurate arm all day long and had plenty of mobility as well.

Price tore his ACL during his freshman season and was a back-up on the varsity as a sophomore. Last season, his first as a starter, Price put up fantastic numbers throwing for 2,325 yards and 20 touchdowns while completing 61% of his passes competing at the highest level of Texas high school football.

Price showed off his skills at Wake's one day camp and had a good time doing it. "The camp was just a lot of fun," said Price. "There was a lot of good competition out there and I enjoyed that. I think I threw the ball well."

Price did enough to get the attention of quarterbacks coach Tom Elrod. "Coach Elrod said they are real interested in me. He said Wake is very selective about their offers. They have already offered one quarterback in my class but Coach Elrod is going to talk to the rest of the staff about me and give me a call back this week. They seem really interested and I hope it works out."

Sunday was Price's first visit to Wake and he liked what he saw. "The campus was really pretty actually. I like how it's kind of tucked back in the woods and feels secluded from the city but the city is very close by. I also saw the football stadium and it really looks nice. When it's all done it looks like it will be a top of the line facility."

The Deacs seem to have made a good impression on Price during his time there. "If Wake was to offer, they would be right at the top of my list. They play in a great conference and have high academics as well as a great location. I hope they do offer and things work out." Price noted he would like to make his decision by July or August before the beginning of his senior season.
