    UNLV assistant football coach Cedric Cormier is one of the fastest athletes David Aymond has coached in his 16 years at North Shore High in the Houston area. UNLV recruit Tim Cornett is a close second. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Cornett, who is verbally committed to sign with UNLV today on national signing day, is one of the fastest running backs in Texas. The Rebels are expected to receive letters of intent from 19 players today, including four from talent-rich Texas who were primarily recruited by Cormier.

    Despite team’s struggle, coach says Texas QB is a good find for UNLV

    January 26, 2010

    Don't let the subpar numbers from Taylor Barnhill's senior season fool you. That's the message Northwest High of Justin, Texas, football coach Bill Patterson has for UNLV fans in regard to Barnhill, his 6-foot-4, 210-pound quarterback. Barnhill, one of three players who verbally committed to UNLV over the weekend, completed only 47 percent of his passes for 847 yards and five touchdowns in 2009. To make matters worse, Northwest didn't win a game.

  • Defensive tackle from Washington commits to UNLV

    January 22, 2010

  • Athletic receiver leads list of weekend commitments

    January 17, 2010

    Kurt Davis often surprises opponents on the football field with his speed. At 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, the senior wide receiver from Centennial High in Compton, Calif., isn't expected to outrace defensive backs after making a catch. But with a time of 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash, Davis' speed and size make him a dangerous weapon on the outside. It's a weapon UNLV will have for the next four years.

  • New UNLV head football coach Bobby Hauck meets players following a news conference at UNLV Wednesday, December 23, 2009. Hauck had a 80-17 record at Montana where he was the head coach from 2003.

    Hauck’s first week of recruiting a success

    January 12, 2010

    New UNLV football coach Bobby Hauck knew he had to make up some ground on the recruiting trail. Still, Hauck didn’t seem bothered by the fact that it was two days before Christmas and he had yet to start the process for his initial signing class. Addressing media, supporters of the program and current players, Hauck said during his introductory press conference that he’d would be aggressive on the trail. His plan was to take advantage of each recruiting weekend in January by finding players who could help transform the program into vision of success.
