H.S. Scouting Report

Evaluated 07/09/2021

Brandon Jenkins
Brandon Jenkins Recruiting Analyst

Rice is a powerfully-built wing who is a true matchup nightmare in the high school game. He has the physical build of a Mack truck but combines his powerful frame with a great amount of athleticism and skill. He is simply a strong-bodied wing who can score at all three levels. His strength allows him to be extremely effective on the drive as he bullies and overpowers opposing defenders on his way to the rim where he is an elite finisher. Rice has a similar build to former Baylor undersized power forward Mark Vital but does not have the same level of bounce even though he is a threat to basket protectors in the rim. But what makes him all the more special is that he can knock down the perimeter jumper with regularity. He can drain in jumpers off the bounce with range to the three-point line and he has a knack for putting the ball in the basket as he is always a threat to go on exciting scoring runs. His effort however goes beyond scoring. He has a nose for the ball on the glass and after snatching boards he has the ball skills to lead the break to make something happen. Throughout this past year, Rice has been one of the more consistently productive prospects in the national 2022 class. He has the body and skill set to make an immediate impact in the college game if that is the route he decides to move forward with.
