ORLANDO - An already impressive 2009 recruiting class for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets just got a little bit better on Thursday when Glen Rice issued his commitment. Rice becomes the fourth commitment for Coach Paul Hewitt's squad.
Rice was solid in the Georgia Stars opening game win over the St. Louis Eagles, and after the game he made an anticipated announcement. "I am committing to Georgia Tech," Rice explained.
For Rice the reasons for committing to the Yellow Jackets were numerous.
"It is close to home, I really like the environment, and I really like the coaches. Also they have (Kammeon Holsey) going there.
Earlier this week four-star point guard Mfon Udofia committed to the Yellow Jackets joining Holsey and Rivals.com top 150 prospect Brian Oliver. Rice, the No. 46 rated player in the country, feels that the recruiting class that Hewitt and company are bringing in could be special.
"It is a really big class, it is really good," said Rice about the impressive four man class that now boasts four of the top 125 players in the country.
With his college decision out of the way Rice will now try to help his team to a Super Showcase title in Orlando.
