New Tar Heel commit Price a big-time burner

I finally got some stuff from Pompano (Fla.) Ely coach Rodney Gray on CB Jabari Price, who switched his commitment from Minnesota to North Carolina after visiting Chapel Hill last weekend.

Gray said that he considers Price a shutdown corner.

“He takes care of his side of the field,” Gray said. “Once he takes that side of the field, we’re able to establish our game plan. “He’s strong and he’s rangy.

“He’s in our offensive package also, but we’ve had no need to play him there.”

Gray said Price, who is 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, has legitimate 4.3-second speed in the 40-yard dash, and is a key to the school’s 4X100 relay team.

Ely is a powerhouse, off to an 8-0 start in Class 5A competition. Price has 30 tackles, two interceptions and eight pass breakups.

He is the Tar Heels’ 12th commitment.
