UNLV basketball will have a visitor this weekend as class of 2014 guard Pat McCaw is coming to campus, according to a source. McCaw’s official visit comes just a few days before the first day of the spring signing period on April 16.
McCaw, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard, is a St. Louis native who played for Montrose Christian High in Maryland. McCaw is a three-star player with interest from Virginia Tech, Florida State and Missouri, among others.
It could be an eventful week for the Rebels. On Wednesday, they expect to get a signed letter of intent from Findlay Prep guard Rashad Vaughn. They’re also working on the process of getting San Francisco senior guard Cody Doolin eligible immediately at UNLV.
Then there are the decisions elsewhere on the roster. The NBA has to return its evaluation to coach Dave Rice and junior forward Khem Birch by Monday. After that, Birch will have all the information he’s going to get before deciding whether to leave early or return for his final season.
Roscoe Smith’s recent departure left UNLV with one open scholarship, assuming Doolin takes up another. Birch’s decision, or that of a reserve or two who could still change their mind, could leave the Rebels with even more scholarships to fill before this season.
