Nation’s top offensive tackle to announce college decision Thursday night

·1 min read

The top ranked offensive tackle in the 2022 college football recruiting cycle is set to announce his college decision Thursday night and the good news for Notre Dame is that they’ve still got a seat at the table.

The bad news is there is stiff competition to land the commitment of five-star Zach Rice, a 6-6, 282-pound senior from Lynchburg (VA) Liberty Christian. Rice ranks as the seventh player overall in the entire 2022 recruiting class according to the 247Sports Composite.

Along with Notre Dame, Rice lists Alabama, North Carolina, Ohio State, and Virginia as his finalists. We’ll know where Rice chooses at 8:15 p.m. ET tonight as he’ll announce his college decision on CBS Sports HQ.

Rice will be a great addition wherever he ends up attending but at this point it’d appear to be a bit of an upset if he chooses Notre Dame.
