    Yup, only a few hours away from home rather than a long drive for parents. I find it amusing when people think poorly of CU when a kid decides to stay home.

    Smart kid - guess grades wouldn't have been an issue with him. Damn, would like to see DFW open up.

    Frustrating if this was a guy we were strongly recruiting.

    Looks like he had 2 other PAC offers, 2 B12, 1 SEC that he also turned down in favor of Rice.

    Might be the parents close issue, might also be that some kids are just uncomfortable going that far from home.

    Or it might be that Rice is an Ivy League level school.

    I wouldn't say that it's quite up to par with the Ivies but is in there with Duke, Vanderbilt, WUSTL, etc. as the top places right below the Ivy+Stanford+MIT tier for undergrad.
