UNLV's Non-Conference BB schedule is out 

Oct. 25 vs. West Coast Baptist College (exhibition)

Nov. 5 vs. Purdue Fort Wayne WIN

Nov. 9 vs. Kansas State LOSS

Nov. 12 at Cal LOSS

Nov. 15 at UCLA LOSS

Nov. 18 vs. Abilene Christian WIN

Nov. 20 vs. Texas State WIN

Nov. 23 vs. SMU WIN

Nov. 26 vs. Jackson State WIN

Nov. 30 at Cincinnati LOSS

Dec. 7 at BYU LOSS

Dec. 18 vs. Pacific WIN

Dec. 21 vs. Robert Morris WIN

Dec. 28 vs. Eastern Michigan LOSS

Very early prediction of a 7-6 non-conference record 

@ cal and @ UCLA should be two good games to watch...I think they could go either way. I was at the last game UNLV and Cal played at Berkeley, it was fun to watch.

This guy gets it. Can you imagine if he gets 2 or 3 of those players in the same class to be rebels? There's crazy talent here now.

All 10 of the players Otzelberger has offered in the Class of 2020 so far are locals. “We’ve only offered kids in the Las Vegas area,” Otzelberger said. “At some point we’re going to need to move [beyond the area], but we want to make sure those kids know first and foremost that we want them to be here, and we were going to make sure our actions indicated that.”

What I like about TJO is that he’s branding the program all about Vegas. For natives and 2nd generation Las Vegas and so on it’s inspirational....

Hope all his plans come into fruition!

He’s probably gonna get Nick Blake and Jhaylon Martinez.  I hope he can lock up Martinez soon bc the Ivy League schools are starting to show interest.

It's a great plan, but he's going to need to start actually landing some of these kids eventually. Otz has been passed over by just about every decent recruit that he's offered.

Question: do throwback UNLV pics or videos belong in this thread?

Here's an old face for ya Rebel fans.  In 1994 Kebu Stewart was BW Player of the Year.  The 35th pick in the '97 NBA Draft selected by Philly, ultimately played a decade overseas.  

How did that guy end up transferring to Cal State Bakersfield of all places?

Ray Brewer way over inflated this commitment - He says it's due to the new UNLV football facility which I would agree with if this recruit was a 4 or 5 star level that UNLV really never sniffs..........but this is a non-rated player who's only offer was from Southern Utah.............hardly a game changing recruit based on ratings & offers, so the thing that tripped Brewers switch was he actually committed while IN THE NEW BUILDING - 

The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Tuinei verbally committed last week while inside the Rebels’ Fertitta Football Complex, the nearly completed $31 million home for the program. Tuinei, on campus for a 7-on-7 tournament, is the first player to commit from inside the complex — a milestone surely not lost on the UNLV coaches.

The 73,000-square-foot, two story complex is a game-changer for the program because it gives them the best facilities in the Mountain West. Those facilities, of course, include the $1.8 billion football stadium being built near Interstate 15 and Russell Road that will be shared with the NFL’s Raiders.

The Fertitta complex was a top priority for coach Tony Sanchez when he was hired five years ago, giving the Rebels a gigantic edge in recruiting over other schools in the league

That edge was indirectly seen with Tuinei, who had 74 tackles and nine sacks in 2018 in helping Arbor View win the Mountain Region championship.

Tuinei, who couldn’t immediately be reached for comment, is the first local pledge for the class of 2020. He also had a scholarship offer from Southern Utah.
