On Tuesday, Detroit product Jodan Price became the second member of the DePaul Blue Demons’ 2012 recruiting class. Price, a 6’6″ wing from Detroit Country Day, chose DePaul over Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Hofstra, Lamar, Saint Joseph’s and Western Michigan. He was also recruited and offered by Minnesota and Northwestern, but both cooled after receiving other commitments.
Price is ranked as the #133 overall prospect by Rivals and the 26th small forward in the class. His recruitment to DePaul was led by head coach Oliver Purnell, who also locked up a commitment from power forward DeJuan Marrero (Gary, IN) last month. Price committed just days after making an official visit to DePaul’s Chicago campus. His host on that visit was Donnovan Kirk, a Detroit Country Day alum currently on the Blue Demon roster.
