The only person more relieved by Joe Price's decision may be his mother. Last night the Price family…
Price Becomes a Bulldog
Joe Price profile "Joe has had a real good year so far," said Hall. "I told him this summer that he wasn't going to be an SEC prospect at running back, but that he would be a national prospect if he went and played corner and learned the position. "He's done a good job for us out there. He was playing some part time at tailback, but we've had an injury there. He's playing there more because of that." The state champion coach reports that the name of the game for his talented player is speed. "He has world class speed and that translates over to football," said Hall. "He went to Oklahoma and ran a 4.28 and they didn't believe it, so they made him run it again. He ran a 4.33 that time. "The speed he has is something most people don't have and you just can't teach that." In addition to being a solid football player, Coach Hall reports that Joe is just as good off the field. "You know he is just a great kid," said Hall. "I coached his half brother for three years and he graduated last year. They are both fine young men and people won't have problems with either one of them. "There is just no baggage there at all." The offer from the Bulldogs came late in the evening and a decision came shortly there after. "It all happened last night," said Hall. "I believe I got the call around nine o'clock last night." Price was told earlier in the process by Mississippi State Coach Dan Mullen that he wanted to see Joe in person before making a decision on a potential offer. Mullen and recruiting coach Mark Hudspeth flew down to Madison last week to scout Joe and teammate Tobias Singleton. It appears Price had a good showing.
