Although Rice owns offers from Ball State, UCF, Florida Atlantic, and New Mexico, he has yet to be officially tendered by the Wolfpack coaching staff. That could all change once the 6-foot-5, 285-pounder makes the trip to Raleigh in January.
"They said if everything works out they like to offer me when I'm up there on the official," explained Rice.
An N.C. State offer would be a welcome addition to Rice's offers sheet as he currently considers the Wolfpack as well as North Carolina and South Carolina among his current favorites. Rice doesn't plan to verbally commit to any school until each of his official visits have been taken.
