Pittsburgh (KDKA)- The University of Pittsburgh officially announced that linebacker Ejuan Price will be a member of the 2011 team.

Price originally signed with Ohio State in February but was recently granted his release. He will have immediate eligibility for the upcoming season.

Head coach Todd Graham had this to say about the 4-star linebacker, “Ejuan Price is an outstanding addition to our freshman class. 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.”

Price was rated one of the top 15 middle linebacker prospects in the country by Scout.

Price is one of four Woodland Hills products to sign with Pitt this year, joining defensive lineman Khaynin Mosley-Smith and defensive backs Lafayette Pitts and Jevonte Pitts.
