UNLV Lands Umeh
Last week, Charlie Spoonhour landed John Winston from the West Coast. This week, Spoonour went Southwest for a recruit.
Sources confirmed with TheInsidersHoops.com that Michael Umeh committed to Rebels this week. Umeh completed his official visit to UNLV last weekend. Prior to that, he tripped to Southern Methodist.
Playing alongside a number of Division I signees last year at Missouri City (TX) Hightower, Umeh excelled. With Lanny Smith running the point, Umeh played the combo guard role to the tune of 16.2 points a game.
UNLV has three grants remaining. We expect the Rebels to blend in a juco or two to go along with their two high school commitments. It's safe to say, the highest rated recruit they are banging with is forward Trevor Ariza. The Rebels will be looking for one perimeter player and two more big guys.
