Faaaeanuu Pepe had been thinking about committing to Rice  before he arrived in Houston on Owl’s junior day. While he was there, he decided he was ready to make his college decision. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman from California gave his pledge to Rice.

I found out about Rice when I visited with my team sophomore year while attending the SPE Elite National Camp in Louisiana. After that visit I was mesmerized by how great Rice was and I really wanted to go there. When season was over, Coach Picazzo (quarterbacks coach) followed and contacted me on Twitter. This past February, my school went for another visit. As soon as we got back to California, the next day, Coach Sanders (linemen coach) told me that they wanted to offer me (Feb 5).

I reacted with so much excitement and disbelief because it was actually happening! Rice University stood out to me because they not only put football to a high standard but academics had to match as well. That standard was very high and was very unique compared to other schools I’ve been to. Not only that, but their coaching staff is awesome! They hold themselves well and they are experienced to the max! My parents, family, coaches, teammates and friends were all apart of the process and they greatly impacted my decision. I just want to let them know that I love and appreciate them so much!
