A.J. Price

Local Receiver Picks Penn State
Colleague B.J. Koubaroulis passes along this report:

South Lakes senior wide receiver A.J. Price accepted a full scholarship to play football at Penn State on Sunday.

During an official visit this weekend, the 6-foot-4, 175-pound second team All-Met chose the Nittany Lions over offers from Virginia and Michigan.

The decision ended a late recruiting battle that began after Price reeled in 32 catches for 816 yards and 11 touchdowns this fall, most of which surfaced on a highlight reel that drew recruiting interest from several major programs.

“We didn’t have any film on him from last year,” South Lakes Coach John Ellenberger said. “All of the sudden we are into the third or fourth game [this season] and I put together a highlight reel and then [the recruiting interest is] ridiculous.”
