UNLV bolstered the future of its offensive line last week, receiving a verbal commitment from offensive lineman Matt Brayton.

The 6-foot-4 295 pound senior from La Puente, California attended coach Tony Sanchez's camp on Sunday, June 14th. It didn't take him long to decide to don the scarlet and gray.

"I think I can see myself there the next four years. The whole coaching staff made me feel welcome and part of the team already."

Last season as a junior, Brayton was named to the first team All-Mission League offense. His Bishop Amat team advanced to the Pac-5 semifinals of the CIF-SS before falling to eventual champion Corona Centennial 38-37. This season Bishop Amat is being chosen as the 24th best high school football in the country by MaxPreps and CBS Sports.

Early playing time for the Rebels looks to be in Brayton's future.

UNLV's coaches "expect me to come in my freshman year and compete, and more than likely I'll see some plays on the field."

Brayton chose UNLV over New Mexico and Montana State.
