2014 UNLV football recruiting: Rebels take a small, quality class

Ethan Miller

UNLV signed just 16 players but the team was happy with the quality of players for this 2014 class.

UNLV is coming off of their best season in over a decade and it should show in their recruiting class. This 2014 crop of players was small in numbers with 16 overall with 10 high school and six junior college players. Head coach Bobby Hauck emphasized that despite the class being small in numbers that it is full of quality.

Defensive players were the main focus for UNLV as they signed five defensive lineman and four defensive backs. The only other position with more than one player was quarterback and offensive line with two.
