LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Tight end Sean Price committed to nearby South Florida back in June, but that won't stop the Citra (Fla.) North Marion four-star prospect from taking a look around at a few other schools in January.
"I still love USF," Price said following Tuesday's practice at the Under Armour All-America Game. "They are still a school that I know I could go to and make a big impact. I just want to make sure that is the right place for me. That is why I am taking some visits.
"I am going to USF on the 13th, Oklahoma on the 20th, and Arkansas on the 27th," Price added.
The Sooners are a new addition to the list of prospective schools for the Rivals250 prospect. They recently came in the picture because their depth chart is in desperate need of some help at tight end.
"Oklahoma recently called me and told me that they had two tight ends available, a freshman and a sophomore," Price said. "Due to an injury to the freshman, he decided he didn't want to play any more. I guess the sophomore had some behavior issues so he is no longer with the team. So they have a big need at the position."
Price says that the recent additions of junior college tight end Brannon Green and Rivals100 tight end Taylor McNamara do not concern him. It is one of the many topics he has discussed with the coaches in Norman.
"I have learned an awful lot about Oklahoma," Price said. "The coaches have talked to me a lot. I have been able to learn a lot from talking to them. I just want to get up there now for a visit. I want to get on campus so I can learn even more about them."
In addition to Oklahoma, Price also intends to take a good look at Arkansas. He has a high interest in the Razorbacks due to the efforts of assistant coach Kris Cinkovich who heavily recruits the Sunshine State.
"I am talking with Coach Cinkovich at Arkansas," Price said. "He just tells me that they really want me. He said they give their tight ends a great opportunity to get to the league. Their tight ends average at least 80 catches a season. That is a good fit for me as well."
Price says that as of today he couldn't give a fair assessment of the likelihood that he ends up sticking with his commitment to South Florida. He said the visits will go a long way to helping him make his final decision on National Signing Day.
