Price is playing well at the right time. He had a TD reception against Northwestern two weeks ago and another TD catch against Minnesota last week.
Price pointed to the speed of the game as the biggest adjustment from high school to college. He also noted the adjustment to playing in front of Big Ten-size crowds.
“The big thing I’m learning is just you really have to focus on what you need to do on each and every play and not let the atmosphere and the hype to each game get to your head. You just have to learn to perform and do what you know how to do,” he said.
Price is excited to return to his home state for Saturday’s game.
“I’m just so thankful for all the support from everybody back in Greentown and Kokomo. I’ve gotten an uncountable number of texts, Facebook messages, tweets — everything. They show me constant support. I’m so thankful for that. It’s a huge blessing to know I have so much support back home and that everyone is watching me up here,” he said.
