DePaul scores sharp-shooting wing

All spring and summer, Jodan Price went out and got buckets.
Now, the 6-foot-6 wing from Beverly Hills (Mich.) Detroit Country Day has picked where he'll be getting his buckets with his choice of DePaul.
"Basically it was a basketball decision," said Price. "They needed a shooter and I went to practice and saw that they have a lot of drivers but not a shooter so I can see myself fitting in."
While he's a bit on the lean side, Price has established himself pretty clearly as one of the class of 2012's premier net-strippers from deep. Because of that shooting ability, he should be able to step right in and play if he can add some strength.
"I see myself stepping right in and being ready to play," Price told "By the time the season comes hopefully I'll have been working out and be strong enough to be ready to play."
Ranked No. 133 nationally in the class of 2012, Price will join a recruiting class that already includes Indiana wing DeJuan Marrero.
Most of all, Price is happy to have made a pick even if there was some pressure from a few members of his family to pick Lamar where his uncle Joseph Price is an assistant.
"It feels good," said Price. "It's kind of hard to get to the decision because my uncle coaches at Lamar.
"He and my dad were still hoping that I would pick them but I just felt like DePaul was the best decision for me."
