LB Price ready to see Ohio State

When Ejuan Price picked up an offer from Ohio State earlier in the year it was obviously a big moment in the prospect's young playing career.

Now that the magnitude of that moment has set in and Price has had a chance to evaluate his options he's continuing to move forward at a methodical pace, evaluating all of the schools that have been recruiting him, especially those that have offered.

Over the weekend Price, a 6-foot, 235-pound prospect from Pittsburgh (Pa.) Woodland Hills, told Rivals.com that three schools are currently sitting atop his leader board.

"It's probably Pitt, Iowa and Ohio State," he said. "But that's not in any order. I'm really liking (those) three."

Price is obviously very familiar with Pitt, as he resides and attends school very close to campus. In fact, he was at Pitt over the weekend.

"The last two days we had two competitions at Pitt," he recalled. "We had a 7-on-7 on Saturday and Sunday and we had a Lineman Challenge on Saturday. I did both of them and we won both, so it went good.

"The coaches were walking around all day so I talked to them a couple of times."

What about the two Big Ten schools under consideration?

"I want to get out to Iowa sometime in July. I've got a date set to visit Ohio State on Tuesday," he said. "I'll be there on (June) 29th. That's just an unofficial visit."

Price said he is being recruited by Luke Fickell from Ohio State. He wants to make a decision sometime in July.

Last fall Price recorded 107 tackles, 32 tackles for loss and 11 sacks for Woodland Hills. He is ranked the No. 19 prospect in Pennsylvania by Rivals.com.
