Georgia Football: Bulldogs May Still Be Favorites To Land Former 4-Star OL Commit E.J. Price

Less than two months after verbally committing to the Georgia Bulldogs, four-star offensive tackle E.J. Price backed off of the pledge. Usually, a decommitment is a very bad sign for a school's chances to eventually land a player, but according to Price, UGA still has a great shot to land him. In fact, they may actually be his No. 1 school. 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution interviewed Price before he flew out to Oregon for The Opening, and he spoke highly of the Bulldogs. 

“My relationship with Georgia is still good,” Price said. “I’ve talked to Coach Richt and Coach Sale.

“Georgia is definitely in my top five schools, if not my No. 1.”

 Price says that his relationship with the coaching staff remains strong.

“I said what I said on my Twitter — I felt like I ended my recruitment too early,” Price said. “I just want to look at all my options. Like I said, Georgia is still one of my top schools.

“Everybody … they don’t know if I’m not with the Bulldogs or what’s going on or whatever. And I don’t even want to talk about it too much. Like I say, Georgia is good with me, and I’m good with Coach Richt. And that’s really all that matters to me.

“I really don’t care what the media thinks about it. I know where I stand on UGA’s board.”

Price, a Georgia native, is rated as a four-star player, and ranked as one of the ten best offensive tackles in the nation, per 247Sports.
