meteorologist ted pretty. this is fox5 news at 10. local. las vegas. today is national signing day for high school football players. it's also the day where universities like unlv lay the groundwork for future teams. the rebels are bringing in one of the best recruting classes in history as tony sanchez continues to turn the program around. fox 5's kevin bolinger has more on why unlv is creating a buzz. kevin: this is the best recuiting class that unlv football has seen in more than two decades. in the op three of the mountain west and top 75 in the country. the excitement is building and head coach tony sanchez says now it's time to get to work. the 2015 unlv recruting class is made up of 23 players - but it's the type of players that is sending a message to the mountain west conference that the rebels are on the rise. unlv signed a
bringing in the type of players that normally wouldn't give the rebels a sniff. head coach tony sanchez says the culture is changing. tony sanchez: the majority of our guys came from winning programs so they're gonna came with the attitude of i'm a winner. you want that. it will bleed into the guys that maybe didn't come from those types of programs and it'll bleed into our guys who haven't had a lot of wins lately. so i think the more we brgin that in the more that will be the expectation. the rebels brought in players who will have an immediate impact at key areas like offensive line, defensive line and defensive backs. they also signed two top tier quarterbacks - highly regarded high school q-b armani rogers who was being pursued by pac-12 schools is someone sanchez says has a special career in front of him. and junior college transfer johnny stanton - who began his career at nebraska - will step in right now as a 6'3", 245 pound playmaker that changes the rebels offense. tony sanchez: johnny stanton is a phenomenal football player. he
hearing comparisons and people talking about his running ability but he throws first. he threw for 3400 yards but he did rush for 700 yards so he's a dual threat guy. kevin: believe it or not spring football practice is just over a month away here at rebel park. a lot of those junior colllege transfers are enrolled at unlv and they will partake in spring practice. that'll just help the rebels hit the ground running when summer camp begins. at unlv, kevin bolinger, fox5 news, local las vegas. kevin will sit down with coach sanchez to talk more about the recruting class in the rebzone....this sunday night at 11. if the oakland raiders need to find a new home-- nfl commissioner roger goodell says he not opposed to the team making the move to las vegas.
