"I wanted to go where I felt it would be best for me, if that was Carolina, Duke or Wake Forest," Rice said. "My brother told me he's going to pull for me in every game I play except once a year when Carolina plays Duke. He's still a Blue Devil."

Rice had 123 tackles, six tackles for losses and three interceptions last season for Coach Bobby Poss. He is considered a top-35 senior in the state by most recruiting analysts. He has 4.5-second speed over 40 yards.
