West Virginia is well-known for its hidden talent on the gridiron. Football prospects from all over the state regularly walk-on at respectable College Football programs and make a name for themselves.

A local high school football talent could soon be the next West Virginian to do so.

Juda Price, a 5-foot-9 running back prospect out of Independence High School in Coal City, West Virginia, has received shared on his Twitter that he has visited the Mountaineer Football program.

Price was the 2023 Gatorade State Player of the Year for West Virginia. During his senior campaign in 2022, he accumulated 2,587 rushing yards and 49 rushing touchdowns (52 total). The talented Price was also named the Kennedy Award Winner (Best Player in WV), Curt Warner Award Winner (Best RB in WV), and the MetroNews Player of the Year.

Price set state records for both two-point conversions (42) and single season scoring (396). There has been no indication as to when we can expect him to make a decision.
