Southwest Ohio perspective, Rice's upside is a good bit higher than Cupps. Cupps is very skilled, cool under pressure and sweet stroke from anywhere inside 22'. Rice is a year behind in school, more athletic, as good a ball handler and maybe passer, while a good shooter, not as good as Cupps, yet. In two or three years, my guess is Rice is a better player than Cupps. A definite PG, but he can score too.
Expose on rice..just hit youtube today.
Another guy to watch!!! Had some great duels with Gabe Cupps!!
