Rice Sets Clemson Visit

Union linebacker Curtis Rice put on a show during his last few weeks as a high school football player by helping lead his team to a state title and by dominating the North-South All-Star game back in early December. Now, he's coming to Clemson this weekend for his official visit.

"I talked with Coach Stock and he said they want me in," said Rice. "I'm going up there this weekend for my official visit."

The senior linebacker continues to see offers come in from some of the smaller schools around the southeast, including Middle Tennessee state, Catawba, and Coastal Carolina.

"I set up my visit with Middle Tennessee for January 24th, but I don't have any of the other ones set up yet. Middle Tennessee has offered me, but Clemson has not. Right now, I'm just waiting to see what happens," said Rice.

Rice runs a legitimate 4.51 40-yard dash and has a 33-inch vertical jump. The senior linebacker led the way for Union's defense with four tackles, two sacks for 18 yards, and two forced fumbles in the 61-28 destruction of Camden for the state title. He also had a touchdown run while doubling as a fullback for the Union offense.

While an offer is not yet on the table, it could be before the end of this weekend. Coach Stockstill has remained in close contact with Rice throughout the recruiting process, seemingly providing daily updates to the Union linebacker on his recruitment.
