BALTIMORE, Md.,--The son of Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice auditioned at the Ravens' rookie mini camp on a try out basis this past week.

The former un-drafted UNLV wide receiver walked onto the Ravens practice field with the hopes of impressing coaches and earning a spot with the team.

According to Aaron Wilson from the The Baltimore Sun, Rice Jr. said "I'm trying to handle business and, when I get a chance, try to make an impact,"

The former UNLV receiver, who transferred in his final season of eligibility after being a walk on at UCLA is trying to make the best of an opportunity to gain the attention of the NFL team.

The road will be hard, but Rice Jr. is battle tested. Being the Son of an NFL legend such as his dad will bring pressure and hopefully build the character that the Ravens will see.

Jerry Rice Jr. said "regardless of how everything goes, because I know it's a business, I enjoyed it and I think I did well and I'm proud of myself. I'm thankful for this opportunity."

The knowledge of the game and Rice's work ethic made an impression on coach Harbaugh.

The Sun wrote Harbaugh saying " He Knows all the rules of the crossing routes. He knows what to do, very good hands, real smooth athlete. He did a real nice job."

There is a long way to go for Jerry Rice Jr. Hopefully it will be in the purple and black.
