  01/21/21 - Kenyon ObladrSo/2023, UNLV, 6-2, 190 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  UNLV quarterback Kenyon Oblad announced Tuesday afternoon on Twitter he has entered the NCAA's transfer portal. Oblad, a Liberty High School product, has three years of eligibility remaining. He said there were a lot of factors that went into his decision to leave the Rebels. The 6-foot-3-inch, 195-pounder was 167-for-308 (54.2 percent) passing for 2,081 yards with 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions while leading UNLV to a 3-5 record as a redshirt freshman. That record included a 33-30 overtime win over UNR in the Battle for the Fremont Cannon, in which he tossed a 19-yard touchdown to Steve Jenkins for the game-winner. - Las Vegas Review

  UNLV wide receiver Randal Grimes has entered the NCAA's transfer portal. The 6-foot-4-inch, 205-pounder from Desert Pines High was suspended for the entire 2020 season. Grimes chose Southern Cal as a four-star recruit out of high school but transferred to UNLV after two seasons with the Trojans. Grimes was granted immediate eligibility to play for the Rebels and shone in his only season on the field. He led UNLV with 44 catches for 696 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019. UNLV coach Marcus Arroyo declined to comment on the reason for Grimes' suspension when it was announced in November, other than to say it was for a violation of "team or school rules." - Las Vegas Review

  12/09/20 - Max GilliamSr/2021, UNLV, 6-2, 200 (DS#37 QB) + More +

  UNLV quarterback Max Gilliam recently had an unexpected star turn, appearing in a multi-episode arc on the Bravo TV reality show "Below Deck." The show, in its eighth season, focuses on the crew of a yacht and the rotating cast of clients who charter the vessel. Gilliam's first appearance aired last month. He was identified in the episode as a "star quarterback at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas." So what is Gilliam, a native of Thousand Oaks, California, who is sharing first-team reps at quarterback at UNLV, doing on a reality series in the Caribbean? The team, which is scheduled to play its final game of the season Saturday at Hawaii, declined to make Gilliam available to discuss it. A UNLV spokesman said coach Marcus Arroyo did not have a comment.

This much we know about the show: Unlike many reality series, charter guests don't get paid for appearances. According to BravoTV.com, the guests pay to charter the boats, which cost between $140,000 and $175,000 a week during the show's first two seasons. Also, the guests are expected to provide a generous tip at the end of their voyage. While all indications are that Gilliam was not compensated for his appearance on the show, it would have been allowed under a new NCAA ruling that allows college athletes to benefit from the use of their name, image and likeness in a manner consistent with the collegiate model. - Las Vegas Review Journal

  11/07/20 - Randal GrimesrJr/2022, UNLV, 6-3, 205 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  UNLV wide receiver Randal Grimes has been suspended through the end of the calendar year, UNLV coach Marcus Arroyo said Tuesday. "Randal Grimes is not with us for team or school rules," Arroyo said. "And I'll keep the terms of that in-house out of respect for him as an athlete." Grimes, a junior from Desert Pines High, led the Rebels with 44 catches for 696 yards and seven touchdowns as a sophomore last season after transferring from Southern California. He has not played in either of the first two games this season. Arroyo also announced that wide receiver Mekhi Stevenson, defensive backs Drew Tejchman and Greg Francis, and fullback Jamal Neal have opted out of this season because of the coronavirus pandemic. "(Those four) are currently still part of the team, but they are opting out of the COVID year," Arroyo said. - Las Vegas Review Journal

  09/22/20 - Kylan WilbornrSr/2022, UNLV, 6-2, 252 (DS#999 OLB) + More +

  Another veteran Arizona Wildcats defensive player is leaving the program. Senior edge rusher Kylan Wilborn announced Monday that he is entering the NCAA transfer portal. Wilborn earned Freshman All-America recognition in 2017, when he and classmates Tony Fields II, Colin Schooler and Scottie Young Jr. piled up big numbers and established themselves as the foundation for a rebuilding UA defense. Now all four are gone. Fields and Young transferred to West Virginia earlier this year. Schooler transferred to Texas Tech to try to play this fall when it appeared the Pac-12 Conference wouldn't. All four players were recruited by former coach Rich Rodriguez and his staff. - Arizona Star News

  UNLV transfer quarterback Justin Rogers and defensive lineman Adam Plant were granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA, the school announced Friday afternoon. Both Rogers and Plant transferred to UNLV from Texas Christian, and will have three years of eligibility remaining. Rogers is a former four-star recruit ranked No. 43 overall in the 2018 class, per 247 Sports. He was the No. 3 ranked dual threat quarterback but injured his knee during his senior year of high school, and never quite found his footing with the Horned Frogs. - Las Vegas Review Journal

  The Mountain West has announced the indefinite postponement of all scheduled fall sports contests and MW championship events in response to ongoing challenges with the effective mitigation and management of the COVID-19 virus in conjunction with athletic competition. The MW Board of Directors prioritized the physical and mental health and well-being of the Conference's student-athletes and overall campus communities in its decision - as it has done throughout the course of the pandemic. The fall sports affected by today's decision include men's and women's cross country, football, women's soccer and women's volleyball (with the exception of the unique circumstances involved with the military service academies). Last week, the league announced that all fall competition in the sports of men's and women's golf, men's and women's tennis, women's swimming and diving, men's and women's indoor track and field, softball and baseball was canceled. At this time, there are ongoing discussions regarding the status of winter sports. - Mountain West Conference

  Offensive tackle Clayton Bradley is transferring to UNLV, and the Southern California graduate will be eligible to play this season. Bradley (6 feet 5 inches, 295 pounds) did not play last season because of a back injury suffered in 2018. The NCAA granted him a sixth year of eligibility in January. Bradley played in 14 games and started three in 2017 and saw action in just three games in 2018 because of the injury. - Las Vegas Review Journal

  UNLV's football team isn't finished playing at Sam Boyd Stadium, after all. The Rebels will return to their former home Sept. 5 to play Louisiana Tech. The university still plans on opening its season Aug. 29 against California at Allegiant Stadium, where the Rebels have a joint-use agreement with the Raiders. But a venue for the school's game Sept. 12 against Arizona State is not yet finalized. UNLV athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois said admission for the Louisiana Tech game is free for returning season ticket holders and discounted for new season ticket holders as part of the school's Faithful Fan pricing package. "This is our way of expressing our appreciation to our season ticket holders," Reed-Francois said. Also, seating for the game against Louisiana Tech is expected to be on general admission basis. The NCAA, however, has not yet cleared the return of college sports because of the coronavirus pandemic. - Las Vegas Review Journal

  04/17/20 - Javin WhiteSr/2020, UNLV, 6-2, 211 (DS#7 SS) + More +

  UNLV players in the NFL draft were a common sight in the early part of this century. Between 1999 and 2010, the Rebels had just three years when a player wasn't selected. In 2002, the school had a record four players taken. But since center Joe Hawley went in the fourth round of the 2010 draft to the Atlanta Falcons, the Rebels haven't had a player taken. Javin White, who can play safety, cornerback and linebacker, could end the streak when the draft takes place Thursday through Saturday. "I'm trying to break that drought," White said. "I feel like I'm that one to break it." "I know I'm going to get drafted," White said. "It doesn't matter if I go from the fourth round to the seventh round. I know after a while certain teams are going to be interested to see what I can do. They're not going to want another team to have me, so they're not going to take that risk of trying to get me in free agency."

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, White wasn't able to participate in a pro day or visit NFL team facilities. So he put together his own pro day March 19, and his Las Vegas-based agent, Ross Jones, sent each team a video. White also has game tape for NFL teams to evaluate. He made 79 tackles last season, including 8½ for loss, to go with 11 pass breakups, three interceptions and two forced fumbles. He was named honorable-mention All-Mountain West. - Review Journal

  2019 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST FIRST TEAM (COACHES): RB - Charles Williams, Jr., UNLV,...Williams (Fresno, CA/Bullard HS) is the fourth UNLV running back to be named First Team All-MW, joining Lexington Thomas in 2017, Dominique Dorsey in 2004 and Jeremi Rudolph in 2000. His net total of 1,257 yards during the regular season is the seventh-most in school history, led the Mountain West and currently ranks 16th in the nation. Williams joins former UNLV backs Dorsey (2004), Ickey Woods (1987) and Kirk Jones (1984) as a conference regular-season rushing champion.

The Chuck Wagon moved into seventh place on UNLV's career rushing list (2,445) and his six 100-yard games this fall gave him nine in his career, which ties for seventh in Rebel history. Williams went for a career-high 186 yards in UNLV's win over San Jose State in the home finale and sprinted for a career-long 80-yard run for a touchdown in last week's victory at UNR. His 11 rushing touchdowns ranked second in the MW and tied for sixth in UNLV history. - UNLV Football
