WR Brenden Rice, son of Jerry Rice, transfers to USC
Former Colorado wide receiver Brenden Rice, the son of legendary receiver Jerry Rice, announced Tuesday that he will transfer to Southern California.
Rice grabbed 21 receptions for 299 yards in 2021, the Buffaloes’ second-leading receiver in both categories. He led Colorado with three receiving touchdowns.
In two collegiate seasons, Rice has recorded 27 catches for 419 yards and five touchdowns. He was a three-star recruit coming out of high school.
USC hired Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley last month, leaving the Trojans to rely on the transfer portal to build a new recruiting class. Riley enticed one of his former Sooners, wide receiver Mario Williams, to transfer to USC.
He also flipped Class of 2022 running back Raleek Brown, Class of 2023 quarterback Malachi Nelson and 2023 wide receiver Makai Lemon — all five-star recruits in 247Sports’ Composite rankings — from the Sooners to the Trojans.
