Wake Forest gets commitment from Texas QB

Wake Forest has received the commitment of QB Tanner Price of Westlake High in Austin, Tex. Price also had offers from Stanford and Rice, and was being recruited by Duke, Vanderbilt and Virginia.

Which tells you he’s no academic slouch. Price, who is 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, is also pretty good on a football field. As a junior, he threw for 2,302 yards and 19 touchdowns in his first season as a starter. He was a backup as a sophomore, and missed much of his freshman season with a knee injury.

He impressed Wake’s coaches with a strong arm and considerable mobility (4.7-second speed in the 40) when he attended a Deacons’ camp early this month.

Price is Wake Forest’s fourth commitment for the Class of 2010.
