  1. JUCO QB Richard Lagow has a new offer from Memphis new HC Mike Norvell. He has stated he will make his announcement at 5:00 PM-E.

  2. HC,

    UNLV just got a JUCO QB commitment from Johnny Stanton. Here’s some text from the article in today’s Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Stanton (6 feet 2 inches, 230 pounds) gives the Rebels 12 commitments. His decision also means Cisco (Texas) College quarterback Richard Lagow won’t be part of the Rebels’ future.”
    I hope Mr. Lagow realizes the opportunity in front of him. Good OL, excellent RB’s, improving WR corps and a power 5 conference. I feel REALLY good about his upcoming decision. GO HOOSIERS!!!

  3. Stanton is another in a long line of legendary Orange County, CA High School quarterbacks. He lead Rancho Santa Margarita High School to a state championship and then signed with Nebraska. At the time, Nebraska coveted dual threat quarterbacks. One serious knee injury and a coaching change later, Stanton found himself at the bottom of Nebraska’s depth chart, so he went home to revive his career by playing a year at Saddleback JC. He did very well. Stanton is as effective running the ball as he is throwing it. He’s playing for two former Nebraska coaches who are now at UNLV, and he is close to home. Given their respective styles, both Stanton and Lagow made the right choice.
