» Five-Time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll
Givens Price was a valuable performer on both lines for Nebraska during his career in Lincoln. The Houston native spent his first four years in the program working on the offensive line, seeing time at both guard and tackle. Prior to his senior season, Price moved to the defensive line and added depth at tackle for one of the nation’s best run defenses.
Price saw his most extensive action at Nebraska during his junior season, when he was a part-time starter at right tackle. Price excelled off the field, being named to the academic All-Big Ten team three times during his career. Price earned his degree in accounting/management in May of 2015, and played his final season as a graduate student.
Price switched to defensive line in fall camp and added depth. He appeared in NU wins over South Alabama and Minnesota and had an assisted tackle against the Jaguars.
Price saw action in 12 games on the offensive line, with starts at right tackle against Florida Atlantic, Iowa and USC. Price’s play in his first career start against Florida Atlantic helped Nebraska set a Big Ten modern era record for total offense with 784 yards, including 498 rushing yards. The line powered running back Ameer Abdullah’s record-setting season, as he became NU’s career leader in all-purpose yards while ranking second in rushing.
Price played in eight games as a reserve guard. His role increased late in the season with numerous injuries on the line, and he became a regular on the Huskers’ PAT and field goal units.
2012 (Redshirt Freshman)
Price added depth, and played in wins over Southern Miss, Arkansas State and Idaho State.
Price redshirted in his first season in 2011.
Before Nebraska (Alief Taylor HS)
Price helped Coach J.D. Jordan and Alief Taylor High School 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.
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 was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll five times. Price has volunteered his time with Husker Heroes, Husker Hotline, Uplifting Athletes, Make-A-Wish and local hospital visits.
