Lineman transferring from SMU to UNT

Sam Rice

Once a verbal commitment to North Texas, Sam Rice is, a couple of years and one stop later, following through on that pledge.

While the school has yet to announce his addition, the Denton Chronicle, citing a source close to the situation, is reporting that the offensive lineman has decide to transfer from SMU to UNT.  As the Chronicle notes, Rice had verbally committed to the Mean Green in December of 2011 before flipping and signing with the Mustangs the following February.

On SMU’s online roster, Rice is no longer listed.

Rice will likely be forced to sit out the 2014 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.  Beginning in 2015, Rice would have two years to use his remaining two seasons of eligibility.

In 2013 as a true freshman, Rice started six games with the Mustangs.  He played in all 13 games the previous year.

    If he was a true frosh in 13, then he was in high school the previous year

    Yeah everything in this article seems to point to him playing HS ball in 2012.
