The Kentucky Wildcats have picked up a four-star recruit from an unexpected place. E.J. Price will transfer from USC to Kentucky as first reported by Josh Edwards of 247 Sports and later confirmed by Price via Twitter.

The 6’6″ 325-pounder was the ninth-best offensive tackle in the nation when he chose USC over Florida State, LSU, Ohio State and a slew of other schools in 2016. After playing three games as a true freshman, the Georgia native chose to change locales to play a little closer to home. Price should have three years of eligibility at UK, beginning in 2018.
Anytime you can land a Top 100 recruit, it’s great for your program. This time it’s just coming from an atypical source.
