Wednesday was the second national letter of intent day for college football, and the headline maker this cycle was shockingly UNLV. New head coach Marcus Arroyo and his staff have hit the ground running. UNLV has the top ranked class according to Rivals.com (247/ESPN list Boise State 1st). Read above for more details. Are the Rebels poised to take over the suddenly wide open West Division?
UNLV was the signing day surprise. Boise State, was not. The Broncos did what they usually do and signed a top Group of 5 recruiting class. The Broncos fended off a late surge from USC to retain quarterback Cade Fennegan. Expect our annual MWC Connection Top 10 MW high school recruits to feature several Broncos and Rebels.
An odd contest, the Aggies were down by as much as 8 points in the second half and needed a run to survive the upset bid, yet ended up winning by 15 points. The Aggies will look to avenge their embarrassing loss to Boise State from a few weeks back this Saturday.
Cedar Hill star Quin Bright is headed to Hawaii, where he’ll play for the man who recruited Cedar Hill coach Carlos Lynn
Truth be told, prior to signing day, new Hawaii coach Todd Graham was mostly doing damage control in recruiting. Next to no prospects worth noting, until Wednesday. Texas high school star Quinshone “Quin” Bright chose Hawaii after de-committing from Texas Tech back in December. Bright is easily the gem of Hawaii’s recruiting class.
This was Hawaii’s big recruiting steal
