A quarterback originally destined for the University of Colorado is coming to play for head coach Bobby Hauck at UNLV instead. Nick Sherry from Petaluma, California committed to play for the Rebels this week. According to the “Review-Journal,” Sherry chose UNLV over Idaho and San Jose State, but also drew interest from Wisconsin and Arizona. He originally committed to Colorado, but the school withdrew its offer after head coach Dan Hawkins was fired and replaced by Jon Embree. Sherry, 6-5 and 210 pounds, is listed as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com and a two-star recruit by Scout.com. Last season as a senior at Casa Grande High School, Sherry threw for 2,623 yards with 25 touchdowns and six interceptions. He will enroll for fall camp in August, but may end up redshirting this year because the Rebels have other quarterback options, including returning sophomore Caleb Herring and new junior college transfer Sean Reilly, who will join the team for spring practices.
