Rice (6-foot-1, 230 pounds) is the No. 21 inside linebacker for the recruiting class of 2017, per 247Sports.
“When I committed to LSU, I was still considering Georgia, and now I have decided that is the school for me,” Rice told Scout.com. “I just feel Georgia is a safe selection for me.
“I like coach Kirby Smart and I like coach [Glenn] Schumann (inside linebackers) and coach [Mel] Tucker (defensive coordinator) a lot,” he continued. “They have coaches some good players and they know how to develop players.”
