PITTSBURGH -- Former Ohio State recruit Ejuan Price is now heading to Pittsburgh.

The 6-foot, 235-pound linebacker originally signed with the Buckeyes in February but was recently granted his release.

ESPN ranked Price, a second-team Class AAAA All-State pick from Woodland Hills High, the No. 12 linebacker prospect in the nation in the class of 2011.

Pitt coach Todd Graham calls Price "an explosive player" who will fit in well with the Panthers.

Price is one of four Woodland Hills players to sign with the Panthers this year, joining defensive lineman Khaynin Mosley-Smith and defensive backs Lafayette Pitts and Jevonte Pitts.
