Track Star Jordan Price Signs to University of Oklahoma


On Feb. 1, National Signing Day took place in the main gym where 7 athletes signed to continue their athletic careers in college. Three time school recorder holder, track star Jordan price is among these 7 who will continue her track career at the University of Oklahoma.

At a young age, Price knew it would be her destiny to run track and make it D1, and that’s just what she did: follow her dreams and persevere through anything in her way.

“Track has always been a huge part of my life and ever since I was a little girl I knew I wanted to run division 1 track,” Price said.

Price was reached out to by many schools who were amazed by her astonishing personal bests including a 11.6 100 and a 24.5 200, as well as her back to back to back district wins in the 100. Price felt overwhelmed and stressed with the decision on where to spend the next four years.

“Honestly for a lot of people, the recruiting process is so stressful and takes a lot of time and thought,” Price said.

As soon as Price stepped onto the Oklahoma campus, she knew it would be her home for the next four years. She immediately became connected to possible teammates and coaches and felt a comfortableness she didn’t feel at other places.

“At Oklahoma’s campus, I knew that’s where home was for me,” Price said. “I absolutely loved everything about it and created bonds with both my teammates and coaches right off the bat, which is something I didn’t have at other schools.”

Price is jumping straight into her collegiate track career with no fears and has hopes to make it to some of the biggest collegiate track meets and break some records along the way.

“I’m really hoping to compete at Big 12 Championships and NCAA Nationals as a freshman and eventually win at some point,” Price said. “I really hope to set at least one school record over the course of 4 years.”

Price has a big future ahead of her the next four years and can’t wait to start her collegiate season; so she decided to compete this summer at the Nike Under20 race which could qualify her for team USA.

“I plan on competing in the Nike Under20 meet this summer which would qualify me for Team USA, “Price said. “After college, I hope to go Pro and maybe even compete in the Olympics at some point.”
