There's been a flurry of commitments as of late for coach Marvin Menzies and his Runnin' Rebels. Altogether there's been five new additions for the 2017 class, but that number could be dropping down to four. Recent reports came out that a silent verbal had been accepted from Louis Bangai out of the Pasadena area. Those type of commitments are exceedingly rare in college basketball, but not unheard of. Many have wondered why there hasn't been any official announcement from UNLV regarding the scholarship and why it has been so hush, hush. That could be because there is growing doubt concerning Bangai's ability to become eligible for next year. If that's the case, Bangai will either have to prep, or go the JUCO route.
As of now, nothing has changed. Bangai is still considered a UNLV commitment. That being said, I wouldn't get too attached to him coming in for next season.
