Q & A with LB Curtis Rice

Curtis Rice is quickly moving up the charts as one of the top linebackers in South Carolina. Last season, he racked up some exciting numbers with 72 tackles, 4 sacks, 9 tackles for losses, 4 interceptions, and 4 touchdowns.

Of the four touchdowns, one was an interception, 2 were catches, and one was rushed in. With the aptitude to handle play on both sides of the field it is no wonder he has several schools making offers.

Rice (6'2,205,4.54) 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. He currently has offers on the table from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Clemson.

Here is the latest from Curtis in Q & A session provided by InsideCarolina:

Where will you be camping this summer?
Middle Tennessee State, as well as Clemson and maybe North Carolina.

Have David Smith, Eric Young, and you talked about going to the same school?
Yes sir. There are three schools that we have in common that are recruiting us, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

He said that it is a great school with great football and educational opportunities and that I would fit right in there.

South Carolina was my favorite school growing up.

Does your family have a preference where you play?
No sir.

Has your high school coach given you any advice about choosing a school?
He said that I should go where I would get the best education.

How about your family?
They said pretty much the same thing.

What are the most important things to you in choosing a school?
Education is the most important thing and I would like to be able to go somewhere that I can play.
