  01/02/21 - Connor MurphyrSr/2022, UNLV, 6-6, 270 (DS#999 DE) + More +

  Redshirt senior defensive end Connor Murphy became the latest USC player to announce his intent to play elsewhere next season. With the NCAA affording players an additional year of eligibility because of the pandemic, Murphy will have an extra available season to use wherever he may land. Murphy came to USC as a four-star prospect at outside linebacker, but never quite found a consistent role in the rotation. This season, with a new defensive staff in place, his playing time at defensive end diminished even further. Murphy played in three of six games this season, registering three tackles and a fumble recovery. - Los Angeles Times

  12/09/20 - Max GilliamrSr/2022, UNLV, 6-2, 200 (DS#999 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

  Diaz confirmed quarterback Tate Martell has opted out for the season and neither party is sure about the quarterback's role with the program moving forward. "We told Tate we'd just revisit it after the season," Diaz said, "and we'll kind of see where everything's at." The Hurricanes (2-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) confirmed Martell is out for the season Saturday, although they did not disclose a reason. - Miami Herald

  09/22/20 - Kylan WilbornrSr/2022, UNLV, 6-2, 250 (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

  08/15/20 - Justin RogersrJr/2023, UNLV, 6-3, 220 (DS#42 QB) + More +

  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

  08/10/20 - Charles WilliamsrSr/2022, UNLV, 5-09, 200 (DS#26 RB) + More +

  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

  12/27/19 - Tate MartellrJr/2023, UNLV, 5-11, 205 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  Miami fired offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Dan Enos on Friday, one day after the Hurricanes were shut out by Louisiana Tech in the Independence Bowl and finished with a 6-7 record. Enos was with Miami for only one season, and to say it didn’t go to plan would be an understatement. The Hurricanes finished the year on a three-game losing streak, endured wildly inconsistent quarterback play and are ranked 129th - out of 130 teams - in third-down conversion percentage. Only Akron, which finished the season winless, was worse than Miami in that department. Miami converted 27.2% of its third downs, Akron converted 26.4%.

The Hurricanes announced the decision with a one-sentence statement: "The University of Miami football program announced Friday that Dan Enos has been relieved of his duties as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach." The numbers did the rest of the talking. Miami is ranked 89th nationally in scoring offense, 99th in total offense, 122nd in rushing offense and 122nd in red zone offense. It used three quarterbacks in the 14-0 bowl loss, and still managed only 227 yards of offense. - AP College Football
