The 11BNMR results on RRh3B2(R=La, Ce, Nd and Gd) are reported. For CeRh3B2, specific heat and electrical resistivity are reported. From a comparative study of the 11BNMR Knight shifts and the spin lattice relaxation times of these compounds it is shown that in CeRh3B2, there is strong hybridization of 4f states with the conduction electrons. A local moment on Ce with admixture of 4f and 5d-6s orbitals is suggested.
