After an impressive freshman season for Drake, Rayvonte Rice decided to return to the Missouri Valley for another campaign. After an even better year for the Bulldogs this past season, Rice decided it was time to move on.
The 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Champaign announced last week he was leaving Drake and transferring to another school.
“The coaches were great to me and so was the Drake community,” Rice told CBSSports.com on Monday. “I just felt like this was a decision I need to make for me personally. I want to challenge myself in a different way.”
He’s not specifically looking for a bigger conference, but that could be a factor in his decision process.
“Not necessarily. I mean, maybe,” Rice said. “I haven’t decided on any school yet. I’m in the process of doing all that right now.”
He said there are no visits planned yet, and no favorites out of the aforementioned group.
Rice averaged 16.5 points and 5.7 rebounds this past season for Drake, including eight games of at least 20 points.
The updated transfer list will be posted on CBSSports.com on Tuesday. It will be in excess of 300 names.
