What does Sidney Rice have in common with Mack Frost? He does not appear to be interested in any of the South Carolina instate schools other than ... South Carolina, the flagship university of the state.
Rice, at one time a South Carolina commitment, is being recruited by Coach Dave DeGugliamo at the urgent behest of Gamecock offensive coordinator Skip Holtz. Sidney does not have blazing wide-receiver speed — at 4.6, it is somewhat average when it comes to today's wide receivers. But he has incredible athleticism and an unbelievable 41-inch vertical leap, which at 6-3, 185 pounds, makes him a tall target for any quarterback. Rice is beginning to set up his visits.
"I'm going to Syracuse (12/5) and Pittsburgh (11/29)," said wide receiver Sidney Rice. "I also plan to set visits to South Carolina and Tennessee. I like Florida but they aren't calling regularly like the other four. Syracuse, South Carolina and Tennessee have offered."
Rice spent the summer in Florida playing AAU basketball. It was during that time that he decommitted from the Gamecocks and re-opened his recruitment to other schools ... everyone except the school nearest his Gaffney home, Clemson, it appears.
