The 2020 Rice Football recruiting class had an eventful December. Here’s an overview of The Roost’s coverage of the Owls’ newest additions.
The New Year will bring another flurry of activity for the 2020 Rice Football recruiting class. The Owls have another half dozen or so spots to hand out in the class, earmarking several of them for high-profile graduate transfers. Before we look ahead, don’t miss the impressive haul already in the fold. Here’s a rundown of the big week.
Five players committed to Rice in December:
- QB TJ McMahon (JUCO)
- OL Jovaun Woolford (Colgate)
- OL Adam Sheriff (JUCO)
- QB Mike Collins (TCU)
- OL Mike Leone
In total, Rice signed 17 players during the early signing period. 11 of those were on offense, with the remaining six on defense. Only two commits, DL Jamal Marshall and FB Brian Hibbard remain unsigned. Both are expected to sign in February.
We broke down several angles of this class, from the 10,000-foot view to position by position analysis. On the macro perspective, here are five takeaways from the 2020 class as it currently stands. Rice addressed their biggest needs and won some impressive head to head battles on their way to constructing what could be a program-altering class.
If you’re traveling over the holidays, and you’ve already read through the written analysis, make sure you give The Roost Podcast a listen. Carter and I worked through the impact of the incoming players, honing in on how each player would fit at Rice among others at their position.
