USC Offensive Tackle will Transfer to Kentucky


@Goaldyn

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.

    Heck of a pickup.. Our trench game is getting strong. Jarren Williams is gonna love this offensive line by time he’s the starter.

    Did you read the article?

    “He has yet to formally announce any decision.”

      Do you really think I’m that dumb? Both this article and Josh Edwards’ article were edited after I made this comment.

    Will he have to sit out a year?

    1. bennettw859

      yes

  5. Duuuuuude

    Is this the University of Southern California or the University of South Carolina?

    1. runningunnin.454

      An earlier article said Southern Cal.

    2. BBNDan7

      The real USC lol

    This is great news!

    Didn’t he tweet that “I am committed”?
    And earlier Mrs. T said after three games he “redshirted”, which would give him four years technically.
    Which is it?

    1. DACats86

      He has played one year at USC (only three games, but it burns his redshirt). He will use his redshirt year at UK while sitting out the 2017 season at UK. He will then, beginning the 2018 season, have three years to play at UK.

    SECcountry is now reporting it as official….?

    We are on track to have a beastly O-line in 2018.
