05/14/14 - Ravens invite Jerry Rice Jr. to rookie camp tryout...Undrafted wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr. received an invitation to rookie minicamp this weekend with the Baltimore Ravens. Rice Jr. played at UNLV last season and caught 11 passes for 86 yards, including a touchdown in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. He was a walk-on at UCLA before transferring to Las Vegas. His father, Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, was a 13-time Pro Bowl receiver and the NFL's all-time leader with 1,549 receptions and 197 touchdown catches.
Rice Jr. was not signed to a contract. Baltimore currently lists 12 wide receivers on its offseason roster, including starters Torrey Smith and Steve Smith and proven reserves Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown, a 2013 college free agent who became a Joe Flacco favorite because of his size (6-3, 214) as a rookie last season. Baltimore drafted one wide receiver in 2014 -- seventh-rounder Aaron Mellette from Elon -- and signed two undrafted free agents: Jace Davis (Northern Colorado) and Jeremy Buter (Tennessee-Martin). - Jeff Reynolds, NFLDraftScout.com
01/02/14 - UNLV WR Jerry Rice Jr. records first college TD in Heart of Dallas Bowl...Jerry Rice Jr. recorded his first touchdown in reception in his final game of college football, pulling in a 13 yard pass from Caleb Herring in the fourth quarter of UNLV's 36-14 loss to North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Rice, son of NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, transferred to UNLV after four years with UCLA. With one year of eligibility left, Rice was able to compete immediately after transferring during the 2013 offseason. The 5-11, 185 pound wide receiver finished the regular season with just 10 catches for 73 yards, failing to record a reception in six of the last seven games. But Rice was able to find the end zone for the first time in his career as UNLV attempted to climb back into the game during the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for the Rebels, those efforts ended with a Caleb Herring interception and late touchdown run from North Texas running back Brelan Chancellor in the final minutes of the game. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
06/15/13 - At wide receiver for UNLV, Jerry Rice Ö Jr. Fans may hear that over the Sam Boyd Stadium loud speakers this fall as the son of the greatest receiver in NFL history tweeted Friday that he plans to spend his final season with the Rebels. A redshirt senior walk-on at UCLA, Rice Jr. has one year of eligibility remaining and should be eligible immediately. UNLV canít comment on the player until heís officially admitted to the university, which should happen a little later this summer. Rice Jr. tweeted heís expected to go through graduation ceremonies at UCLA on Sunday.
Though he has an historic name, no one would confuse Rice Jr., 5-foot-11 and 186 pounds, with his father while on the field. Over three seasons, the son recorded nine catches for 69 yards in nine games. However, itís possible he could see a lot more playing time for the Rebels than he did with the Bruins. After 2012 leading receiver Devante Davis, UNLV doesnít have a sure thing at the rest of the receiver spots. - Taylor Bern, The Las Vegas Sun
