Recruiting Period Opens With Busy Night at Findlay

Monday marked the beginning of a new NCAA recruiting period with college coaches allowed to travel off-campus to visit high school players, and predictably, Findlay Prep was a popular destination.

At least a half-dozen college coaches were in Henderson on Monday night for Findlay’s first practice, with the main attractions being 2014 prospects Rashad Vaughn, Kelly Oubre and Jonah Bolden.

UNLV has offered scholarships to all three players. And while there were no Rebels coaches at the Findlay session (they were reportedly across town at Bishop Gorman, watching 2015 big man Stephen Zimmerman), UNLV appears to be in the hunt for all three.

Vaughn has UNLV in his final eleven and Oubre has the Rebels in his final eight. Bolden, an Australia native, doesn’t have a list yet, but he spoke highly of UNLV on Monday and seems to be seriously considering the Rebels.

In addition to the 2014 group, UNLV is also recruiting 2016 Findlay point guard Derryck Thornton.

Now that UNLV coaches are allowed to travel for recruiting (until the open period ends Nov. 10), expect them to make more than a few trips down the road to Findlay Prep.
