UNLV isn’t done recruiting for the Class of 2014 yet, but the Rebels’ incoming group is already being recognized as one of the nation’s top classes.
ESPN released its updated class rankings on Wednesday, and UNLV now sits at No. 13 nationally. The Rebels’ 2014 class was outside the top 25 before getting a commitment from Goodluck Okonoboh last week, but now that they have Okonoboh and fellow blue chipper Dwayne Morgan in the fold, it’s a class to be reckoned with.
And there’s potential for the Rebels to rise even higher—they’re currently pursuing 2014 shooting guard Rashad Vaughn, a top-10 player who would make UNLV’s recruiting class elite.
It’s an ESPN Insider article, so I won’t excerpt too much here, but the top-ranked recruiting class currently belongs to Ohio State. UNLV beat out Ohio State for Okonoboh’s services.
