Price Wilson is a 6-foot, 180 pound class of 2014 prospect out of Marietta (Ga.) Walton and Scout caught up with this signal caller.
How have you seen your game progress over the last year?
"I think I've gotten better at reading defenses and my footwork in the pocket."
How has Alabama commitment Parker McLeod helped you get better?
"He has helped me learn little things that are important in our offense."
As you stand on the sideline each game, what do you look for? What is your mindset?
"It is hard to watch and not play because I'm very competitive, but I know that I am one play away so I pay close attention to the plays and the way the defense operates. If that moment comes I'm ready."
How do you think playing for a program like Walton helps you? You guys win, you have a lot of top prospects, and you have competition at each position.
"Competition makes me a better player. Walton has the advantage of having coaches who know the game well and have coached together for a long time. Fortunately for me, the top prospects have drawn college coaches to our spring practices and that is how I got noticed by Alabama."
What schools are showing interest in you early?
"Boston College, South Carolina, Alabama, Eastern Kentucky, Marshall, Harvard, and Georgetown."
What schools did you camp at this summer?
"I was invited to camp at Alabama twice, South Carolina, Kentucky, Marshall EKU, Boston College, Furman, and Samford."
You visited Boston College for the Miami game, talk about that visit, what stood out to you, and your interest in them.
"First of all, academically it is a great school and the campus is beautiful, it was fun to be there when all the students where on campus and to experience the game-day vibe. That was Coach Martin's first game as offensive coordinator and I liked the way he managed the offense."
Do you have anymore visits planned for this fall?
"Coach Mangus (South Carolina) invited me to come over to two games and I will probably to up to Marshall, and to the Harvard vs. Yale game in November."
Do you have any early favorites?
If you were evaluating yourself as a quarterback, what would you say are your strengths and weaknesses?
"The feedback from the coaches at the camps I went to this summer regularly said my strengths are my accuracy, arm strength and field vision. I would really like to improve my foot speed and hope as I get more playing time, my overall game will improve."
