ESPN 300 E.J. Price talks visits and top schools


LAKE OSWEGO, Oregon -- Offensive lineman E.J. Price decommitted from Georgia in June, but says that the Dawgs are still very much in the picture. The reason for the decommitment was more of a timing issue than anything else, and coach Mark Richt and his staff could see him back in this class.

"A lot of people said there was a problem or something, but I just ended my recruitment too early. My parents felt like my decision was premature and I need to put more thought into it," he said. "Right now, Georgia is still my No. 1, there's nothing that happened with them to make me decommit, it was just a choice I had to make for myself. I talk to Coach Richt all the time, so I'm good with them."

Price says he will be visiting Florida State and potentially Tennessee and Michigan over the summer. He would like to take a few visits to help him narrow down his list before his season.

"I'm going to be releasing a top five soon. Probably before the start of the season, but schools like Georgia, Michigan, FSU and Texas A&M are in the mix," he said. "There are about seven or eight schools in the mix right now that I'm trying to determine who will be in the top five."

Price said that Georgia, Michigan and Florida State are three schools that will definitely make his top list.

The Wolverines might seem like an interesting choice since Price currently lives in Georgia, but he is originally from Michigan and still has family there.

"Michigan has a lot of good stuff going on up there. Coach [Jim] Harbaugh came up there and there are a lot of good recruits going there," he said. "I'm from there so I have a lot of family there, which is a part of the main attraction for me."
