Jerry Rice is the best wide receiver in NFL history and, going strictly off of stats, it’s not particularly close.
His days on the field are long gone, but the name “Rice” will be called on college football Saturday’s starting next season.
Brenden Rice, a three-star prospect out of Arizona, announced where he plans to play his collegiate football.
Michigan was seen as a favorite in the early going, but Jim Harbaugh and company did not land Rice.
The wideout recruit took to Twitter to reveal he’s headed to Colorado to play for Mel Tucker.

He’s the No. 70 receiver and No. 12 player in the state of Arizona for the class.
In early June, Rice announced a top 11 schools list. Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Michigan, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC and Washington State made the cut.
After adding the son of an NFL legend, Colorado owns the No. 43 recruiting class in the 2020 cycle. Mel Tucker and company now have the No. 6 class in the conference.
Rice is the second-highest ranked recruit in the class.
His father didn’t need to attend a major university to become the greatest receiver of all time. We’ll see if he can follow in his father’s footsteps.
