Guard Marvin Price a 2019 prospect has had an impressive spring for the DC Blue Devils in the UAA circuit. Price is already a highly coveted prospect who many schools are prioritizing early on. Price caught up with GatorCountry.com to talk about his recruiting process and the upcoming Florida visit he has scheduled.
Price plays a physical style of basketball. Being in attack mode is a normal thing for Price who always looks to be the aggressor.
“My playing is very physical,” Price said. “I have a high motor. I attack the basketball well and rebound good for my size. I need to work on my body more which I have been and finishing with my off hand.”
The first two UAA sessions went according to plan for Price and the DC Blue Devils. The team has an 8-0 UAA record and is relying on the great team chemistry that the players have from many years playing together.
“The first two sessions were very good,” he said. “We went 8-0. I felt like I could have played a lot better but I pick it up on defense so I feel good about it. We are playing good though. Our starting five had played together since 8th grade, so we just try to go out and have fun. I love my team and every single person in the team contributes. We like playing at a fast tempo and playing our type of basketball.”
Price has recently planned a couple of summer unofficial visits and both happen to be in the state of Florida. Price will check out Miami on June 3rd and then Florida on June 6th.
“I am very excited about visiting UF,” Price said. “I’ve always been interested in this school since I was young. I can’t wait to see the campus. I like the UF coaching staff because they are very nice and seems like they want the best for the players. I like the Florida playing style a lot because it seems as if Coach White just lets you play and create a fast tempo.”
Many schools have been keeping an eye on the physical wing from Patterson High School in Baltimore. Several Big Ten teams have done a great job recruiting him early on.
“Some offers I have are from Virginia Tech, Kansas State, Texas A&M, DePaul, and Georgia tech,” he said. “The schools that are recruiting me hard right now are Maryland, Iowa, Miami, and also Rutgers.”
A coaching staff that feels like family is something that Price would love to have at the school he decides to attend. Price looks to have another solid weekend in Los Angeles this weekend for UAA session 3.
