UNLV added another piece to its already sparkling Top 10-ranked recruiting class with the commitment of Montrose Christian (Md.) shooting guard Patrick McCaw over the weekend.
McCaw picked the Rebels over offers from Oklahoma State, Florida State, SMU and Wichita State. The 6-foot-5-inch native of St. Louis has until May 21st to sign his letter of intent with the Rebels.
McCaw, a consensus three-star prospect and 38th ranked shooting guard for the class of 2014 by ESPN.com, is expected to provide depth at both guard positions. He averaged 10.9 points per game as a senior.
GAYNOR COMMITS: Durango all-state guard Darryl Gaynor has verbally committed to San Jose State.
Gaynor chose the Spartans over offers from Cal State Bakersfield, Florida A&M, Northern Arizona and Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Gaynor averaged 24.9 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists and guided the Trailblazers to the Division I Sunset Region semifinals.
Gaynor will join another Las Vegas product, former Bishop Gorman star Rashad Muhammad, in the Spartans backcourt.
GOODMAN SIGNS WITH ASU: Former UNLV forward Savon Goodman‘s collegiate career got new life after the 6-foot-6-inch combo forward signed with Arizona State on Monday.
Goodman, who averaged 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds per game in his lone season with the Rebels, was suspended from the team for a year following his arrest last summer for two felony charges of burglary and grand larceny. He decided to withdraw from school midway through the fall semester.
“Savon is extremely athletic, very versatile and can rebound,” Arizona State coach Herb Sendek said. “We love his athleticism and he will fit in well with our other newcomers and our returners.”
Goodman spent the past year at Indian Hills Community College in Ottuma, Iowa but did not suit up. He is expected to be eligible after the 2014 fall semester.
