In recent months, four-star offensive tackle E.J. Price had maintained that Georgia and Auburn were his co-leaders. But in speaking to multiple reporters in Orlando, Fla., during check-ins at the Under Armour All-America game on Monday, that no longer appears to be the case.
Per 247Sports.com’s Luke Stampini, Price listed Oklahoma, USC and Georgia among his favorites. The Tigers, however, appear to be on the outside looking in — at least for now.
The 6-foot-6, 311-pound senior from Lawrenceville, Ga., took to Twitter later that evening to clarify his comments.
Top 3 schools not Final

Back in October, the highly coveted lineman identified both the Tigers and Bulldogs as his leading programs.
“I would have to say my relationships with Auburn and Georgia, those are definitely probably my top schools,” Price said in the interview.
Price, the No. 8 prospect in Georgia, is expected to take official visits to Oklahoma (Jan. 15), LSU (Jan. 22) and Auburn (Jan. 29) following the conclusion of the NCAA recruiting dead period. A decision will likely follow soon after.
