Letting everyone know he is paving his own path, Chandler Hamilton senior wide receiver Brenden Rice announced he is committing to Colorado in a video on social media on Tuesday.

"Many say I'm living off someone else's name," says Rice, son of Hall of Famer and NFL receiving leader Jerry Rice, says in the video.

"A young kid in the shadows of a name. A legacy many thought he couldn't uphold."

Rice, 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, has become one of the nation's best high school wide receivers. He is a 247Sports Composite 3-star, ranked as the 70th-best wide receiver in the nation in the 2020 class.
