The news was expected as neither player had announced they would be putting their names in the transfer portal.
These two players join offensive lineman Devontay Love-Taylor and Leonard Warner as seniors who plan to return to the Noles.
The good news is all four players are at positions that require depth and experience to make an impact.
Let’s discuss how Rice and Johnson returning will be impactful for the Noles.
