Price started playing college football at Grossmont College in El Cajon, California. In 2014, Price played 7 out of 10 games where he hauled in 9 receptions for 123 yards. Price had at least 1 catch in each game that season. In 2015, Price only played in 3 games and had 4 receptions for 54 yards. During his career as a member of the Lincoln Lions, Price hauled in 67 receptions for 1,163 yards and 11 touchdowns. Price reflected on his experience saying, “the coaches at Lincoln were the most consistent and showed the most interest by calling me daily and staying interested, plus I wanted to take on the challenge of trying to turn around a program that hadn’t seen many good seasons.” Price finished 2017 as a 1st Team All-Region and 2nd Team All-American Selection. Price also got his name in the record books as he now is second in single season receiving yards and third in career touchdowns. Price statistically stands in the Top 3, Top 5, and Top 10 in many of the categories and was able to do that all while focusing on his academics.
Price mentioned his toughest competition came against Bowie State’s Rahman Kamara. When Price talked about Kamara, he explained “he was patient enough not to over play a receiver but was still physical about his game.” Price said that Kamara was a good size so he couldn’t use his height or body against him. Over the two years, Price had 10 receptions for about 200 yards and a touchdown against Bowie. Price continued by adding, “my personal battle with Rahman didn’t come easy, there’s much respect for each other’s game between us.”
Price is currently preparing for the next step in his athletic career, the NFL. Price will look to maintain his strengths and improve his weaknesses. Price explains, “my trainer and I are well aware that my 40 time is going to make or break me as far as my draft stock and player stock are concerned.” Price also wants to prepare for the 225 bench press test as he will aim to get 18 reps in front of scouts. Price also wants to work on the shuttle run as it focuses on change of direction. If Price can learn and grow in these exercises, he will get his shot at the next level. His skill and size is similar to that of Philadelphia WR Alshon Jeffery. Price also has the size and aggression to be a deep ball threat in the league.
