RedHawk fans will be excited to learn of the latest verbal commitment received earlier in the week. Aaron Price, a big offensive lineman out of Bloomington (IN) South High School, has selected Miami as the place where he'll play in 2009.

RedHawk Insider had a chance to catch up with the 6'4" 285 lb. tackle between three-a-day practices for a quick question and answer session.

When asked about the factors that led up to his decision, Price commented, "I really like the campus. Miami is a great school and has an excellent football tradition. It was really a good gut feel that led me to the decision."

Price is no stranger to Oxford as he attended one of the Miami summer camp sessions. He recently took a second visit to the campus as well, during which he was able to interact with many of the players and coaches.

He's had a good recruiting experience overall, attending multiple camps including the RU (Recruits Unlimited) Lineman Academy camp where he was tested in a variety of areas. He put up 14 reps at 225lbs on the bench, ran a 5.7 forty yard dash and had a vertical of 23".

Aaron's size has been attractive to many schools. "I was also offered by Ohio University and recruited by Indiana, Purdue, Louisville, Ball State and Central Michigan," Price said.

When asked about his strongest playing attributes, Price responded "My work ethic, technique and aggressive play are what set me apart." He feels his biggest opportunities to improve his game will be focusing on his foot-speed and agility. He has a local gym in Bloomington that he will continue working out at during his final year at South.

Aaron looks forward to making the adjustment college life. "I will have to do my own laundry," he joked. He feels the biggest playing adjustment from the high school level to college football will be better foot-speed/and agility.

He's keeping his options open right now in terms of what he'd like to major in at Miami. "I'm undecided at this point, but I'm interested in education or physical therapy," he said. When asked about life after football, Aaron responded "I just want to live the American dream." He intends to enroll in summer courses on the Oxford campus in 2009 and work out with the team.

We talked about the upcoming football season and how he felt about his team's chances. "We play in one of the toughest conferences and sectionals in the state of Indiana. The team looks really good." Aaron mentioned that he's really looking forward to getting some revenge in games against South rivals Lawrence Central and Columbus North.

He was recently chosen as senior captain and hopes to add to the accolades he received individually as a junior. In 2007, Aaron was selected All-State Honorable Mention by the Herald Times.
