UNLV Recruiting Check

Ha, I got ya! You thought this was football recruiting but its really basketball. The whole reason why I'm doing this is because we actually have recruits people care about in basketball and we have 5 recruits with an 89 or higher rating by Scout.com lined up for the 2011 Recruiting Class. UNLV's 2011 class needs to be good as we will have most of our talent departing after this season. I will not provide any analysis except for what ESPN provides before cutting off via ESPN Insider.

Glaze is an undersized power forward who plays the game with unrivaled intensity and toughness.
