Jerry Rice Jr. moves on from UCLA to UNLV

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.

    UCLA has to make room for their new recruits coming in via transfer. Rushel Shell & Eddie Vanderdoes are huge upgrades. Look out SC

    As annoyed as I am that Vanderdoes quit on us, I do want to see UCLA beat up on USC.

    It says a lot when EV is willing to transfer and have to sit out a year. Wonder what’s going on at ND and with Kelly!!
    Another one jumps ship. Kelly set the example when he bolted from Cincy!!

    “During his time at UCLA, Rice recorded nine catches for 69 yards.” Did he primarily play on the practice squad?

    Yeah I’m sure there was no pressure on this kid lol.

    1 transfer? Joe Montana’s kids think Rice’s kid is a joke.

    This is a story? By the way, as a USC fan, I think Phil Steele should be fired for ranking USC 6th this season. If he isn’t paying attention, Kiff is still HC and this team gave up midway through season in 2012

    Its ok Papabush, you’re USC, you’ll be back… probably without Kiffin mind you, but you’ll still be back.

    Am I the only one that forgot unlv had a football program until this article?

    I enjoy this variation of the “One and done” much more than the idiot 18 year old basketball players. I’ll take the college grads with a year of eligibility still left.

    geesh, going from ucla football to unlv football is like going from the hot looking girlfriend to the overweight chunky girlfriend..

    their had to be better options for him? san diego state is in a good situation now and needs a little wr depth..atleast they have been to bowl games 3 years in a row.. UNLV football is horrible! and they will be horrible this year too!!!

    I didn’t even know there was a JR Jr.

  16. dholder1 says: Jun 17, 2013 1:50 PM

    The kid wouldn’t even be talked about if not for his dad
