South Carolina Football’s No. 3 Wide Receiver of All-Time:
Sidney Rice (2004-2006) only played two seasons at South Carolina after redshirting his first year on campus. He was lightly recruited out of high school but soon proved the recruiting industry wrong with his play on the field. Rice tallied double-digit touchdowns and over 1000 yards in each of his two seasons in Columbia and owns the most impressive receiver performance in Gamecock history.
In 2006, Rice had 9 receptions for 161 yards and 5 touchdowns in a closer-than-it-should-have-been matchup with the Florida Atlantic Owls. After dominating while wearing garnet and black, Rice donned Minnesota Viking purple and Seattle Seahawk green over an 8-year NFL career. Brett Favre mentioned Rice as one of his favorite wide receivers ever with Rice being his top target during his Vikings tenure.
