Is Price re-thinking his commitment?

He was Washington's first commitment and he made his decision shortly after being offered in July. He's been steadfast in his commitment to the Dawgs but with the way the Huskies have started the season and the rumors of head coach Tyrone Willingham's demise being everpresent, St. John Bosco (Bellflower) QB Keith Price said he's starting to think more about his situation.

"I see it, we all see it," Price said recently regarding Washington's record and Willingham's hot seat status. "I mean, you would have to be ignorant not to see it, but honestly I'm still pretty committed to them."

Price and his friends sat down on Saturday to watch Washington's game against Oregon State and he said he understands why they are struggling.

"They are so young and they have so many injuries, I mean, that's tough," Price said. "They have talent, but it's still young and coach Willingham has brought in some good coaches and good players, they just have to keep fighting."

On his commitment to the Dawgs, Price said he remains firm, but schools have let it be known they like what they've seen from the senior signal-caller.

"I'm still solid to (Washington), but other schools are still making a big push on me," Price said. "Washington State has been after me hard and Oregon told me they were going to offer me pretty soon.

"Boise State is another school that's been pretty aggressive with me."

So has this new interest from other schools made him rethink his commitment?

"Not really the interest, but if coach Willingham goes, I think I will open things up again," Price said. "That doesn't mean I wouldn't go there if coach Willingham wasn't there, but I'd need to wait and see who ends up there before I decided to sign with them.

"Washington is the school all along I wanted to go to. They have a great program and it's really easy for my family to get to it to come and see me, but I have to make sure I'm committing to a program I can play for and a lot of that has to do with the coaches."

For the season, Price has put up outstanding numbers while leading the Braves to a 6-0 record in one of the toughest league's in the state.

He's completed 72 of 99 passes (72.7%) for 1,371 yards and 17 touchdowns with only two interceptions while also posting 391 yards and eight more touchdowns on the ground.

"Teams have been after me quite a bit, but we're having a great season," Price said. "I love getting out there and being with my teammates and winning.

"Our goal was to win league and then see what happens and we're on pace to do that now, but we have some games coming up against Orange Lutheran, Serra Catholic and Mater Dei so it won't be easy."

This weekend won't be easy either as Price and his teammates will face off against Orange Lutheran which is 5-1 and nipping at the heals of St. John Bosco.

We'll continue to keep tabs on Price's progress and update things as they change.
