The Arizona Wildcats are one of at least four programs that have reached out to Citadel transfer Kaiden Rice, he reportedly told 336Edits.

Rice just entered the transfer portal on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-7 senior averaged 17.6 points and 4.2 rebounds this season while shooting 41 percent from the field and 35 percent from 3. The craziest stat of all? Rice hoisted 264 3-pointers, the second-most in the country. That’s 10.3 per game. Arizona as a team only averaged 18.0.

Rice split time between the 3 and 4 for the Bulldogs, who went 13-12. He was selected to the SoCon All-Second Team.

Here are some highlights from his 20-point game vs. Furman in January. Rice has a lightning-quick release and does not need much space to get his shot off.

Rice is the fourth transfer Arizona has been linked to. The others are:

They all measure at 6-foot-6 or 6-foot-7.
