LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A historic early signing day for UNLV.

Head football coach Marcus Arroyo announced a record-breaking second group of recruits during "opening day."

The list of 19 student athletes featured the highest-rated recruit in the mountain west for the second consecutive season.

The Rebels also got the highest-rated offensive lineman, defensive lineman, and defensive back signed by UNLV since the introduction of the recruiting star system decades ago.

The Rebels just ended this season with a 38 to 21 loss to Hawaii.

And speaking of Hawaii, due to the pandemic Aloha Stadium will have to shut down in-definitely.

So that means UNLV and Hawaii may have played for the final time inside the stadium.
