Marvin Menzies’ 2018 recruiting class is officially underway, as Trey Woodbury has committed to UNLV.
Woodbury is a local product who is entering his senior year at Clark High School. As a junior the four-star guard averaged 14.1 points per game while taking Clark to a runner-up finish in the 4A state championship. 247 Sports ranks Woodbury as the best player in Nevada in the class of 2018 and just outside the top 100 at 119 nationally.
The Rebels have two seniors on the roster in Jovan Mooring and Jordan Johnson. With Brandon McCoy as a possible one-and-done prospect and the ever-present transfer potential for the rest of the roster means UNLV will likely have a handful of scholarships to work with.
Losing Mooring and Johnson means the Rebels will be replacing both of the likely starters in the back court. Woodbury will have a chance to fill that hole.
Woodbury is the first commit in the 2018 class, but he continues a successful recruiting summer for Marvin Menzies who landed a top-15 2017 recruiting class thanks to 5-star big man Brandon McCoy and junior college player of the year Shakur Juiston electing to come to Vegas.
Plus the Rebels are still chasing Matt Mitchell in the class of 2017 despite already having one more player than available scholarships.
