It’s the time of year that committed prospects are getting ready to sign their LOI’s with their respected schools. But there also a few that are looking around to see if there are better opportunities for them. WVU seems to be reaping the benefits of one of those prospects in 2016 Florida State commit Emmett Rice.
Rice, 6’3 200 lbs. linebacker from Norland (FL) has been a Florida State commit since last February but the Mountaineers present a opportunity for Rice that he likes. “They are losing a lot of linebackers so there is a chance for me to get early playing time which is why I’m so high on WVU.”
WVU has been high on Rice from the start and were able to get him on campus for the Texas Tech game. WVU Coach JaJuan Seider has continued to stay in contact with Rice since his visit.
WVU does lose a lot of talent at the linebacker position, so the addition of Rice would provide WVU with an instant impact freshman at a pivotal position. Now the big question is will Rice flip to WVU? Rice says, “There is a chance.”
Rice is rated a 4 star by BGS.
