40-Yard dash: 4.5 seconds
School: Gaffney Senior HS, Gaffney, SC

Sidney managed to make 78 receptions during his senior year for a total of 1,414 yards and 14 touchdowns. His efforts have earned him scholarship offers from Syracuse and South Carolina among others. Rice took official visits to both schools this month, visiting Syracuse on January 9 and South Carolina last weekend. He has only one other visit scheduled at this time.

"I'm scheduled to go to Penn State," said Sidney Wednesday night. "I'm leaving after my [basketball] game Friday night."

Rice will make the trip, his first trip to State College, by himself.

It appears to be a three team race between his three official visit destinations. Tennessee is no longer in the picture. Rice still has some interest in UCLA.

The Nittany Lions have not yet extended Rice a scholarship offer.

"They're going to offer probably this weekend," he said.

Rice does not claim a favorite and doesn't expect to make a public announcement as to his final choice until Signing Day next Wednesday.

Bill Kenney is recruiting Rice for Penn State. What made him decide to visit PSU?

"I just thought it would be a good experience."

What has him interested in PSU?

"Just the program itself."
