NC Safety ready to commit?

The plan for AC Reynolds (NC) safety Chase Rice was to commit early, after all the camps, and focus on his senior season. The timeframe was the end of June, and now that July is upon us, what is the decision?

"I spoke with my dad about that today, and we are going to wait until the end of the season," says the 6-foot-3, 200 pounder. "We are going to try to get some more choices. Wake Forest is good and Duke is good, but we want more options."

Rice expects to have an excellent senior year after a great junior season, though Rice believes it was not that great.

"I personally do not think that it was that great last year. Wake Forest saw the state championship game and they really liked me after that. Once they see this year's tapes they will like me even more."

Having visited several camps this summer, the schools also want to see this year's film before deciding on what they want to do with an offer.

"They want to wait and see the film from this fall. They all say they like me and are really interested, but they want me to be patient before committing."

Rice is a playmaker who finished his junior year with 123 tackles and three interceptions. He had a great Nike Camp with a sub-four second shuttle time, which he replicated at all of his summer camps.
