2014 Outlook
Junior Givens Price has continued to develop throughout his time at Nebraska and is poised to contend for playing time at offensive guard in 2014. The 6-4, 310-pound Price added depth on an injury-plagued offensive line in 2013. During spring ball, Price saw a large number of snaps with the top offensive unit at right guard, and he will be in the mix to contend for the starting job at that position this fall.

Price has also seen action on the Huskers’ special teams, both as a blocker on place-kicking units and as a punt protector. Price is also a two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection.

2013 (Sophomore)
Price played in eight games as a reserve offensive guard. His role increased late in the season with numerous injuries on the offensive line, and he became a regular on the Huskers’ PAT and field goal units.

2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Price added depth on the line in 2012, and played in wins over Southern Miss, Arkansas State and Idaho State.

2011 (Redshirt)
Price redshirted in his first season in 2011.

Before Nebraska (Alief Taylor HS)
Price helped Coach J.D. Jordan and Alief Taylor High in Houston to a 10-2 record and a trip to the second round of the Class 5A state playoffs in 2010. Price’s play was a key part of an explosive offense that averaged 39.6 points per game and topped the 40-point barrier seven times during the 2010 season. For his play, Price earned second-team Class 5A all-state honors.

Price also stood out during his junior season, helping the team to a 9-4 record and a trip to the third round of the 5A playoffs. Price was regarded as one of the top 70 offensive guard prospects in the country by both Scout and ESPN. Price only visited Nebraska, but also had offers from Baylor, Rice and UTEP.

Personal
Price was born on Oct. 3, 1994, and was one of the youngest signees ever for Nebraska. Givens is the son of Edithmary Price. He is majoring in accounting/management and has twice been named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. Price has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline, Uplifting Athletes, Make-A-Wish and local hospital visits.
