"Ejuan Price is an outstanding addition to our freshman class," coach Todd Graham said in a statement. "He comes from a tremendous football program in Woodland Hills. Ejuan is an explosive player who has great leadership abilities. He will fit in well with our defensive schemes and philosophies."
And with that, Ejuan Price officially became a Panther. Not that it was expected - we've been talking about it for several days now as it seemed to become more imminent.
Still, great to hear it's official.
Price joining Pitt gives the team another late addition to go along with Cullen Christian, Ray Vinopal, Josh Brinson, and Brendon Felder. Typically, when there's a new coach, you tend to lose players - Pitt has actually been gaining them because of other coaching changes.
So he's here - now what? ESPN.com blogger Andrea Adelson thinks he'll get a chance to contribute right away. As one of the higher rated linebacker recruits in the country, I'd certainly hope that would be the case. Though, I will say that learning a new scheme and having missed the Spring, he could be a little behind on what Pitt intends to do. But with so much talent, I don't think it's a stretch to say he can help the team this Fall.
