110% COMMITTED ⚪️ @kalanifsitake @coachsteveclark @coachgrimey @BYUfootball @FL_Ftball @DHill39 @bangulo @adamgorney @GregBiggins @BrandonHuffman #BYUFOOTBALL #GoCougs pic.twitter.com/PizXHJbMQu— Quenton Rice (@RiceQuenton) August 7, 2020
Quenton is the son of former BYU defensive back Rodney Rice, who played for the Cougars from 1986-88 and was drafted by the New England Patriots. Rodney was an All-WAC performer during both of his seasons at BYU.
Quenton is 6-foot-1, 170 pounds and also competes in track and basketball. He recorded an 11.10 in the 100-meter and 22.34 in the 200 meter. Quenton is an under-the-radar speedster who is a bit raw, but coaches will look to turn his physical traits into a contributor at wide out.
Rice is the 8th commitment of BYU’s 2021 class and is expected to join the team next year upon his graduation.
