Head Coach Troy Calhoun and the Air Force Falcons football team received a verbal commit this week from Judge Memorial (UT) wide receiver Xavier Price.
Price told The Salt Lake Tribune that receiving the quality Air Force Academy education and getting a chance to serve his country were two of his main reasons for making this decision about his future. The 6'3 195 senior-to-be is going to study finance at the Academy with the hopes of getting a job in money management when he graduates from the Colorado Springs institution.
Another important factor for success when it comes to football at the Academy for Price will be that he is use to operating in a run-first offensive attack, as he did for Judge Memorial, who has won the last two time state champions at the Utah 3A level. The self described deep threat had seven touchdowns in ten receptions this past season. Doing a lot with a little is something that Air Force receivers like Jalen Robinette deal with as a wide out for the Falcons.
Here is Price's Hudl page.
For the Falcons, this is the fourth known commit for 2016. Price joins Colton Parton (OLB) from Georgia, Adam Farah (WR) from Michigan and Rhett Myers (TE) from Tennessee. Air Force recruitment is different than any other school in the Mountain West Conference as they rarely release information in the offseason and do not take letters of intent on recruiting day.
