New UNLV football coach Tony Sanchez has gotten his first commitment from his former school, Bishop Gorman.
Linebacker Nela Otukolo will follow his coach to the other side of Las Vegas, announcing his commitment on Twitter on Friday night.
Otukolo told reporters in Las Vegas, he is the first to go from Gorman to UNLV to play for Sanchez and doesn’t expect to be the last.
Otukolo, a three-star prospect, has canceled visits to Boise State and Fresno State and said he will be shutting down his recruitment now that he has made his verbal commitment.
Sanchez led Gorman to six consecutive state championships and the Gaels finished the season as No. 1 in the Super 25.
