Rice Lands In-State Forward

San Antonio (TX) Southwest product Patrick Britton made a decision this week. The forward will play his college ball at Rice.

Tulsa, Stanford, Texas Tech and SMU recruited Patrick Britton. Rice landed him.

This week, Britton, a 6-8 forward, committed to the Owls after visiting Rice and Tulsa.

"I just was able to see myself playing in the future and I thought it was a good fit. The coaching staff seems like they've got a real handle on things."

Last season, Britton was a first-team all-city and second team all-region selection. In Mike Kunstadt's Texas Hoops newsletter, he's ranked as the No. 11 prospect in the state.

In the end, Rice just made sense to him. "I think the chemistry that was there between the players was good. I could see myself playing there. I have confidence that they'll bring in the right players."
