No local ties but maybe still a player of interest. UNLV's best WR Kyle Williams (originally from Santa Monica, CA.) is now in the portal with 3 to play 2....with surprisingly just a few (only 3) offers (Colorado State, Fresno State & Wazzu) thus far.

I would like to see our OL rebuilt with these two local boys and the two Nevada OL in the portal. We all can wish, can't we?

Hope we don't offer a scholarship. We're doing pretty well at LB and would rather have a transfer who actually played, either at a lower level or at a JC than someone who's been just doing mental reps.
