Jerry Rice Jr. announced his next destination on Friday, tweeting that he will use his last year of eligibility at UNLV.
The former UCLA receiver, who is graduating Sunday, had already decided to leave prior to the Bruins’ spring practices. He caught nine career passes for 69 yards, 30 of which came in a 42-14 win at Colorado last September.
The son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice will join a Rebels team that won two games in 2012. UNLV returns wideouts Devante Davis and Marcus Sullivan, rising juniors who caught for 854 and 659 yards, respectively. Each grabbed four touchdowns.
