Lets start out with where we are at with football. With verbal commitments, this is a really deep Southern Nevada class. What remains interesting is that UNLV and Nevada have only got commitments from two players at this moment. THe Hug commitments seem to be still on shaky ground, Chris Ault needs to reload the Wolfpack by getting local kids to stay home. He is not getting it done. Mike Sanford and UNLV got into some houses, but could not get Las Vegas kids to take the program seriously enough to keep them around. Still a host of players are still out there, I do think that PAC 10 schools in Oregon State, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State and Stanford will continue to raid these left over players. Boise has already gotten their first commitment, another Southern Nevada player.
Justin Chaisson - Gorman - Oklahoma, Torin Harris - Palo Verde - USC, Keenan Graham - Silverado - UCLA, Michael Wadsworth and Aj Alofipo of Silverado to Hawaii, joining them at UH will be Liloa Nobriga of Palo Verde. Jake Broyles of Foothill - Boise State. Jason Childers of Gorman - UNLV. Duke Williams of Hug - Nevada. Karrington Armstrong of McQueen - Oregon. With kids like Proby, Williams of Valley, Sullivan at Cheyenne and Bullock of Vegas - this list will grow. Van Noy of McQueen remains the top un committed Northern recruit with BYU and ASU leading the way.
