Michigan State is right for Price

Last weekend tight end Josiah Price of Eastern High School in Greentown, Indiana put on a dominant performance at the Spartan 1-Day Camp. Shortly afterwards he was offered a scholarship by Head Coach Mark Dantonio. It did not take Price long to decide where he wants to spend the next 4-years pursuing his education and playing football.

Price officially committed to the Spartans this afternoon after traveling to East Lansing with his family. Price was able to spend more time with the Michigan State Coaching staff and learn even more about the program.

Price told SpartanMag.com the following:

SpartanMag.com scouted Price at both the Michigan State Camp and the Ohio State NIKE Camp. At both events he performed very well and separated himself from the other prospects.

Price talked about what it was about Michigan State that made it the place for him.

The Spartans will graduate two tight ends after this season, Garrett Celek and Brian Linthicum. With Price and Evan Jones Michigan State has brought in an impressive pair of tight ends prospects. Both players should excellent fits for the Spartans pro-style attack which likes to feature the tight end as not only a blocker, but a pass catching threat.

Price's commitment to Michigan State gives the Spartans a total of 8 commitments for the class of 2012. He selected Michigan State over other Big Ten programs such as Illinois, Purdue, Indiana and Minnesota. Price had 14 scholarships in all.

Rivals.com currently rates Price as a 3-star recruit. His quick rise on the recruiting scene will allow him to be re-evaluated later this summer when Rivals.com updates it's position rankings. Look for him to move up the national rankings as more people get to see him in action.
