Nation's Reception Leader Declares for NFL Draft

| From

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Jan. 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Nation's leading receiver, Maurice Price, announced Monday that he has decided to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Price led all of Division I football in receiving last year with 103 receptions, becoming just the seventh player in Division I-AA history to record more than 100 receptions in a single season.

(c) Send2PressOver the past two seasons, Price ranks third in receiving with 175 receptions in just 19 games, trailing only Davonne Bess (Hawaii), who had 180, and David Ball (New Hampshire), who had 178. His receptions over that time rank him ahead of receivers such as Sydney Rice (South Carolina) Dwayne Jarrett (USC) and Calvin Johnson (Georgia Tech).

During his three years at Charleston Southern (, Price became the all-time leader, at CSU and in the Big South, in receptions and receiving yards. Price also set the League mark for games with at least 10 receptions, doing so in five contests.

Following his outstanding junior campaign, Price was named to the Associate Press All-American team, The Sports Network All-American second-team, and was named to the College Sporting News Fabulous 50 FC All-Star team.

Price and fellow Buccaneer Collin Drafts are in California working out, having signed with agent Bert Briones. Price has worked out just one weekend, but has already jumped over 40 inches in the vertical leap and had an impressive 11-foot broad jump. His trainer indicates his speed is also very impressive. Last summer, Price reportedly was clocked at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash. The 21 year old Price begins his NFL Combine preparatory program at 197 pounds with only 4.57 percent body fat, standing at 6-1 1/2.
