Travel Team: Atlanta Celtics
Scholarship Offers: Georgia State
Scouting Report: Rice is combo guard who can score the ball at a very high level. He has good size at 6-foot-2 and is not afraid to use it and play with physicality. He is a true three-level scorer and gets a large majority of his shots off the dribble and creating for himself. He is a good jump shooter off the bounce and can be a very crafty finisher in the paint. He makes good reads off of ball screens and, though he is more primarily a scorer, can find open teammates and set up opportunities for others as well. Overall, he is one of the better scoring guards that Georgia has its 2021 class and he is a very instinctual bucket getter. He should be a name that you hear more often through the end of the calendar year.
