Zanin-Banks of Las Vegas High verbally commits to Air Force; Bonanza’s Knapp switches to Colorado-Mesa



After breaking a couple of tackles, Las Vegas High receiver Aaron Zanin-Banks takes off down the field for an uncontested touchdown against the Gators at Green Valley High School on Friday night.

Las Vegas High senior receiver Aaron Zanin-Banks verbally committed Thursday to the Air Force Academy football team, Wildcats coach James Thurman said.

Zanin-Banks caught 72 passes for 1,159 yards and 15 touchdowns last fall to help Las Vegas reach the Sunrise Regional semifinals.

Verbal commitments are non-binding until an athlete signs a letter of intent. Signing day is next week.

Bonanza OL flips his commitment

Last week, Bonanza High’s Jordan Knapp switched his commitment from Weber State to Division-II Colorado-Mesa, Bonanza coach Kevin Volcic said.

The 6-foot-5, 280 pound Knapp originally committed to Weber State in October. Weber State, however, changed its coaching staff at the end of the season.

Knapp is the second player from Las Vegas expected to sign with the Grand Junction, Colo., school. Bishop Gorman lineman Tryson Mook committed two weeks ago.
