Like Midfielder, it could bounce a UA control to your hand (so you can re-use it when you want to) to basically summon a 2200 beater for free.  When summoned, it can summon a monster from grave or hand.  Ideally, you want to summon from graveyard because that's a +1 but if it's really early game and the one you want to summon happens to be in hand, that's still okay.  It'll give you a 2nd monster for Turnover Tactics, as well as potential to XYZ.  But you can't trigger this effect if it was Special Summoned during your turn so, on your turn, you have to Normal Summon it.  Using The Monarchs Stormforth can really help with that.  
 
Since he's a floater once you summon him and you can just tag him out and re-use him, you only need 1 of him (maybe 2 but certainly not 3).  Overall, pretty good though.
 
3.5/5

We switch to one of the Monsters of the U.A. Family today in U.A. Rival Rebounder.  For those who are still unaware, the Monsters all resemble athletes, and this here, obviously being a basketball player.  This is a Level 6, Earth attributed Warrior, with 2200 attack and 2300 defense.  Some of these Monsters are strong, some are kinda meh statistically like this one, and some have low attack but gigantic defense.  This card can be Special Summoned from your Hand by returning a U.A. Monster from your Field to your Hand.  (Get use to that, we've got two weeks of U.A. Monsters coming, and that's staple text).  You're never allowed to Special Summon the card you return though, just be sure to remember that.  Said card is only able to be Special Summoned in this manner once.  Now if this card is Special Summoned during your opponent's turn, or Normal Summoned, you can Special Summon a U.A. Monster from your Hand OR Graveyard, except this one.  This effect can only be used once a turn.  These guys are supposed to be crazy fast, and if you play them right, they will be, and you can overwhelm your opponent with Field Presence.  Remember too, this Deck is incredibly reliant on its ability to Special Summon.  All the Monsters have various, quick effects, but if you come up against an Anti-Special Summon Deck, you're very likely crippled.  I think it's a bit too early to tell how good U.A. will be, but they have a LOT of potential.

While U.A. Rival Rebounder may be a level 6, it may be the monster you use to really get things going in the U.A. deck. Special Summoning another U.A. monster from either the hand or grave will add another monster to be popped back to the hand in favor of a different U.A. monster. Not only that, but if you choose to Normal Summon Rival Rebounder and tribute a U.A., you can revive the monster you just tributed. Combine this with U.A. Stadium or U.A. Turnover Tactics to further advance your position on the field. Normal Summon on your turn with Stadium on the field to add another U.A. to your hand, or use Turnover Tactics on your opponents turn to give your monsters a 500ATK boost. U.A. Signing Deal can set up your tribute to Normal Summon Rival Rebounder, then you can get the U.A. monster back and it will have its effect(s) as well (minus whatever it costs you in LP from Signing Deal). It doesn't need to be Normal Summoned using a specific monster, so use cards like The Monarch Stormforth to get clear out your opponents monsters.
 
It's not the strongest of the U.A. monsters, but it may be the most useful in terms of constructing an offensive attack for you.
