In March it was announced that Jerry Rice Jr. — yes, that Jerry Rice — was one of three UCLA players who were foregoing their final year of eligibility.
As it turns out, Rice was merely foregoing his final season of eligibility with the Bruins.
On his Twitter account Friday night, the son of the Hall of Famer announced that he will be continuing his collegiate playing career at UNLV. As Rice will graduate from UCLA this weekend, he will be eligible to play immediately in 2013 for the Rebels.
“Well it’s been real Ucla… Ended a little sooner than I thought but will always be a bruin..That said I’m bout to be a rebel bruin at #UNLV,” Rice’s tweet read.
During his time at UCLA, Rice recorded nine catches for 69 yards.
