Price has been named college football's most outstanding center.

Ohio State senior Billy Price was awarded the Rimington Trophy on Thursday night, and award that goes to the nation's "most outstanding center."

It's the second season in a row that a Buckeye has taken home the trophy, as Pat Elfein was awarded the honor in 2016.

Head coach Urban Meyer made sure to publicly congratulate Price on Twitter, calling him one of the "greatest players to put on the scarlet and gray."

Price has been a staple on the Buckeyes' offensive line since his arrival, tallying 54 consecutive starts for Ohio State—good enough for a school record.

A two-time All-American, it's virtually a guarantee the senior will hear his named called during the 2018 NFL Draft next spring.

He'll cap off his Ohio State career with one more game versus USC in the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 29.
