Woodland Hills’ Ejuan Price might be headed to Pitt.
The linebacker has asked Ohio State to release him from the letter of intent he signed in February, said coach George Novak, who was in Hershey on Saturday to watch Price and three Wolverines teammates play in the Big 33 Football Classic. Novak said an official decision could come soon.
Price was torn between Ohio State and Pitt all the way until signing day, when he chose the Buckeyes. That morning, he called both head coaches – Jim Tressel and Todd Graham – before faxing his paperwork to Columbus.
When Tressel resigned, Price began to reconsider:
Woodland Hills linebacker Ejuan Price signed with Ohio State in February. He was torn between Ohio State and Pitt before signing with the Buckeyes after calling Tressel. To leave Ohio State, he’d have to ask the university to release him from his national letter of intent.
“I may think about it for a while,” Price said.
Price, who also was recruited to Ohio State by Fickell, wasn’t surprised by Tressel’s resignation.
“It was just a matter of time,” he said. “I thought he’d do it during the middle of the summer, though, when all the recruits had already come in (to campus).”
