Curtis Rice (6-3, 205) of Union has all the physical tools in place to become a strong Division I-A football player, but perhaps his strongest asset is his pure speed.
Rice has been timed at right under 4.6 in the 4-yard dash. He is hard hitter with excellent athleticism.
Last year, he finished the seasons with 62 tackles (9 for loss), 4 sacks, 3 INTs, and 3 fumble recoveries. He played several positions for Union including a little fullback.
Rice is also a standout basketball player for Union and was a key ingredient in the Yellow Jackets run to the state championship game against Myrtle Beach.
Sources close to the Union program have indicated that this kid has as much potential as WR David Smith and OL Eric Young, he just hasn't received the recognition yet.
Both Clemson and South Carolina are involved, with more schools soon to follow. The Gamecocks have already offered.
Rice will have to add a few more pounds to make it to the next level as a linebacker, and he'll likely be able to do so without any problems. We will continue to keep you updated on Curtis Rice as we receive more information over the course of the next few months.
