Wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr., son of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, will attend the San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp.

He took to Twitter on Monday to announce the news:

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Rice had a weekend tryout with the Baltimore Ravens, but the team declined to sign the undrafted receiver. The 49ers' minicamp is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Rice caught 11 passes for 86 yards for UNLV last season, his first after four years at UCLA.

He will now try out for the team his father, the NFL's all-time leader in receptions, yards and touchdowns, helped win three Super Bowls.
