LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -
It didn't take the Rebels' new head coach long to hit the recruiting trail as UNLV announces 7 new commits over the last week. While this season is off to a rough start, the future may be looking up. With the additions the Rebels improve to the 98th ranked recruiting class nationally. "We are really excited about the class we are building here. They are quality kids that will be able to have a real opportunity to contribute to this rebuild." says coach Tprochnow. Highlighting this round of signings was Defensive End Olivier Witherspoon. "Olivier has a great frame and comes in with the talent to contribute right away. It is always great to keep that kind of talent in state." added Tprochnow. Among the other top signees were Strong Safety Patrick Oconnell and Fullback Nicholas Lannister. Both come at positions of need in the near future for the Scarlet and Grey. As the excitement around the program might be on the uptick, it is still to be seen if it can translate to any wins on the field this year.
