Woodgrove junior ATH Price Williams Jr. has seen his recruitment pick up for some very well-respected colleges in the country. With the recent additions of Harvard and Dartmouth, Price now has a total of 14 offers. These offers come from Vanderbilt, Old Dominion, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Kent State, Liberty, Campbell, Buffalo, Duke, Central Michigan, Richmond, and William & Mary. He has clearly separated himself as one of the best on-field players in the area, as well as one of the smartest players, with many very highly touted universities. Price boasts a 4.1 GPA, which is a very admirable and high number for any high schooler, let alone an athlete.
Price is a very versatile player, being listed as someone who can play all three skill positions on offense, running back, tight end, and wide receiver, as well as linebacker on defense. The versatility displayed by Price is a key reason that colleges are intrigued by him. He can play anywhere on the field and do so without looking out of place. He studies the game in a way that very few players can rival. His undeniable drive can be characterized in one word: determination. He is determined to be the jack of all trades for Woodgrove in order to help them succeed.
The different opportunities waiting for Price are very impressive. Going to an Ivy League school is something to behold, and if he decides to attend either Harvard or Dartmouth, he would be thrust into a very unique situation of going to not only a prestigious college but playing Division I FCS football. The offer from Vanderbilt is an opportunity to play the SEC, but also at one of the most selective schools in the nation. Going to Duke requires no explanation, but Virginia and Virginia Tech, the other two ACC offers he has, are both great institutions and chances for him to play on a national stage every week.
No matter which college he chooses to attend, he will immediately be put into a position to succeed. One thing college coaches might ask him to do would be to pick his position of choice. At this point, he has time to decide on what path he wishes to go down, and that path seemingly will lead him to some incredibly exciting places. From the academic opportunities to the athletic opportunities, Price Williams will be in a very envious position over the course of his college career.
