Brenden Rice, the dynamic wide receiver from USC and son of GOAT WR Jerry Rice, has made a notable impact in the college football arena with his compelling performances. Standing at 6'3″ and weighing 208 lbs, Rice brings an imposing, well-built physical presence to the wide receiver position, coupled with an impressive blend of speed and athleticism that makes him a formidable threat on the field.
He immediately produced from the get-go at age 18, breaking out with a 22% dominator rating in a truncated 2020 season for Colorado, albeit on a very small sample size.
Transferred to USC before the 2022 season. His stats in his senior year were particularly impressive, with 45 receptions for 791 yards and 12 touchdowns, boasting an average of 17.6 yards per catch. He finished 5th in target rate above expectation as Caleb Williams' No. 1 WR. Although a 25% final season dominator rating is underwhelming compared to the remainder of the class.
Josh Palmer is my comparable NFL WR for him, as I think he will only go as far as his QB, offense, situation, etc. will get him. Although I'll admit, some of his size, hand work off the line of scrimmage looked like a young, spry Michael Thomas. And there's no denying that he can feast in the red zone - 19% of his catches have been TDs (21 total).
