Repeating History: Montana to Rice, Part Two?

Chris DomschkeCorrespondent IJanuary 27, 2009

Quick, name the greatest 1-2 QB/WR combo in NFL history. Studies show there's a 58 percent chance you named Hall of Famer Joe Montana and Future Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. There also is a 17 percent chance you said Manning and Harrison and a 9 percent chance you said Aikman and Irvin. The remaining 16 percent of you came up with a handful of different responses.
Well, it's just possible that Montana-to-Rice could happen again for a new generation.
Rivals.com, among other recruiting sites, lists Class of 2009 receiver Jerry Rice Jr. as being interested in, among others in the Pac-10 area, the University of Arizona. The star receiver has been gaining a lot more attention and is looking to pull in a few more offers come National Signing Day.
Arizona is recruiting the son of the great Jerry Rice and still has a few more tricks up its sleeve to get him there. Just look at those eyes and tell me they don't resemble his future Hall of Fame father's.
Rivals.com also has given us some foresight into the 2010 recruiting class, to some extent, and headlining the list of potential players interested in Tucson is Nick Montana, son of NFL Hall of Famer Joe Montana.
The younger Montana has already received an offer from Arizona, as well as Stanford and LSU, and I'm sure Notre Dame will come knocking on his door as well.
So, if the stars align, it's very possible that Montana-to-Rice could well be in the works for 2010 or 2011, after Matt Scott's 2-3 year tenure at quarterback. It is an intriguing thought.
