Reilly makes commitment to MWC school

One of the top JUCO signal-callers this year was Saddleback's Sean Reilly (6-4, 210). The gun-slinger put up huge numbers for the Gauchos this season and because of that productivity, he started getting a lot of attention from D-1 programs and over the weekend he decided to commit to UNLV while he was on his trip...

"I committed to UNLV this past weekend," Reilly told JCFootball.com. "It was a great moment for me and for my family and something I'm really excited about.

"I had schools like Virginia, Louisiana Tech, North Texas and Kansas really interested in me, but I just felt like UNLV was my best chance of doing something special.

"I told coach (Bobby) Hauck about wanting to play there and committing to them and he was really excited and said I was the guy they wanted the most."

After a standout prep career at Trabuco Hills (Mission Viejo, Ca.) High School, Reilly decided to enroll at Orange Coast College.

"I was only 17 when I graduated and I didn't get any offers I was happy with," Reilly noted. "I headed to Orange Coast and I was behind a guy that eventually ended up at Utah.

"Then, after that season, I just decided I needed to go to Saddleback so I redshirted and then started this past season."

In his one year at the helm of the Gaucho attack, Reilly put up huge numbers, going 200 of 300 for 2,323 yards, 20 touchdowns and only six interceptions while playing in nine of their 11 games.

"I got a concussion early in the first game, so I missed the next week which basically means I only played in nine of our games," Reilly said. "Before we got to league, I was only throwing about 25 times per game, but then when we got into our conference games, I was throwing it like 50 times a game and throwing for over 400 yards per game, so we really 'unleashed the beast' as my coaches said."

Riley will sign with the Rebels on Wednesday, December 15th and he will have two years to play two once he steps on campus.
