A&M Consolidated High School has been known to produce next-level talent across all of its sports teams. Many of their student-athletes have moved on to play collegiately and some even in professional leagues. Devin Price is sure to be one that will remain in the memory of everyone who has witnessed his capabilities. As the 2019 football season draws to an end, the senior wide receiver has a bright future past high school ball. 

Price has been putting up all-star numbers since his varsity debut in 2017, and he only hopes to get better. Devin’s talent and athleticism have already led him to a first-team all-district selection in his junior season and at the rate this season is going, he is looking to repeat. He is currently ranked 13th among all wide receivers in the state according to Dave Campbell's Texas Football. After sitting out a couple of games due to injury, he was itching to get back into action. Price stated that his biggest goal for himself going into this season was to become a better leader and to help take his team to state. That goal could easily become a reality as Price and the Tigers are undefeated with an 11-0 overall record and are currently the 3rd best 5A Division II high school in the state of Texas according to Dave Campbell. When asked to comment on how he thought the season was going so far, Price had only positive things to say about his fellow teammates, “This season is going great. The offense is clicking on all cylinders and the defense is doing really great things. It should be a big year for us.” 

Devin’s efforts on the field were definitely recognized as he was pursued by 15 different football programs as a 3-star recruit. These teams included Texas A&M University, The University of Arizona, Kansas University, and The University of North Carolina. The University of Arizona made the biggest case to possibly pull Devin away from home. Devin stated that “I got really close to the [Arizona] coaching staff, and they are definitely a great school as well, so it was pretty tough.” 

Being the son of current Texas A&M football defensive ends coach, Terry Price, made Devin’s decision a match made in heaven when he established that he had verbally committed to play football for Texas A&M University in July of 2019. When asked what the deciding factor was to commit to Texas A&M and stay in the Bryan-College Station area, Price responded by saying “Just staying home and staying close to my family. That was very important to me, and it’s obviously a great school to play for.” This is the first time in Texas A&M history that a player will have his father on the field with him as a coach. After being asked what he thought about working alongside his father, he laughed and said, “I think it will be alright. I won’t really see him much, so it should be fine”. Coach Price has certainly played a major role in his son’s development as a person and a player. When Devin was asked what the most important lesson his father had taught him was, he responded, “be kind to other people and be a good person.” 

The future is sure to hold great things for this young recruit, and hopefully for our FIghtin’ Texas Aggies as well.
