Maddox would seem to be biggest need.

Dixon might be important as well. With Campbell, Thomas and Owen's gone there is a need to replenish depth at RB.

Williams is the only guy returning with significant reps.

Add Jordan Smith to the list. 3 star 8500 rating per 247 sports SDE out of Butler JC. They snuck him in here last night for an official visit. Hasn't committed yet, but UNLV looks like the best bet for his landing spot.

Rahmod Smith a 3* TE just tweeted that he is "reevaluating his options & reopening his recruitment. He verbally committed July 2018. He just got back from a visit to FAU so my guess he got flipped.

Solid class so far like most have stated with some interesting names floating as possibilities but I am wondering if there might be some signing day surprises. Any clues out there?

I really looked at Justin Ford as a fallback with numerous better options available. I hope we get shivers who is a highly ranked CB at the same position.

In a very indirect manner since he stole John Garrison from us and Garrison was his original recruiter for the Rebs two years ago. Surprised he didn't get pursued more by Pitt since he was pretty close with Ben Cotton when he was a GA for us but he may not have liked the idea of playing in the cold.

Brandon Shivers. i have noticed he is following a half dozen Boise State coaches and none of the UNLV coaches.

Shivers is overrated. His tape from his Senior sucks, his Junior year tape is good, but I don't see the big with him. There is a reason why SDSU dropped him

If you can show me anything that says SDSU dropped him, I would like to see it, everything I have seen shows he dropped SDSU. He has offers from numerous high level programs that are well above SDSU.

Schools often tell players that they are no longer on their board but allow them to "de-commit" so it doesn't make the kid look bad. Also not sure if those "high level schools" still have interest and if so why isn't he locked into one of them?

There could be a number of reasons as to why he dropped SDSU/ they dropped him. Maybe SDSU thought he wouldn’t fit into their scheme. Maybe he thought he wouldn’t get enough reps. Maybe he hates the weather in San Diego and would rather play in Idaho for the snow. Maybe his dream degree is that basket weaving bachelors from Boise. Who knows? Its a personal choice thing. Like for me, I can’t imagine why in the world anyone would want to play in reno.

I wouldn’t mind having him on the UNLV roster, our corner play is pretty inconsistent. Having a taller corner isn’t such a bad thing.

I don't believe he has an offer from Boise State. I think the only recent offer he has is UNM immediately after he decommitted from SDSU.

Brandon Shivers is a curious case. He entered the season highly regarded, but the season stats I saw on him (http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/brandon-shivers/Pz81g0igEea-8KA2nzwbTA/default.htm) he had only 25 total tackles, one interception, one deflected pass, and one forced fumble - but most of his numbers came early in the season and by the end of the year he was getting about one tackle per game. His team plays at the 4A level (the third highest level in Arizona) but he was not one of the 6 DBs to earn all-state 1st/2nd team at that level - but two other DBs on his team did. On paper he looks like the kind of "3-star" that Bobby Hauck would suddenly land in February.
