The last time Patrick McCaw made a trip to Las Vegas, the Montrose Christian guard delivered the assist that led to the game-winning dunk in the Mustangs’ comeback win against national power Findlay Prep (Nev.).
When McCaw returned to Vegas earlier this month for an official visit to UNLV, it again led to a positive result as the senior committed to play for the Runnin’ Rebels this past weekend.
“I felt real comfortable with the coaching staff and you know at UNLV, it’s going to be a packed house every night because it’s got a basketball atmosphere,” McCaw said. “I’m really looking forward to it.”
In McCaw, UNLV snagged a combo guard who can knock down the outside shot and handle the ball. The Missouri native averaged 13 points per game and knocked down 42 three-pointers in his lone season at Montrose Christian to help lead the Mustangs to the National Christian School Athletic Association Division I title.
“The coaches said they see me as a versatile player from the [point guard] to the [small forward] spot,” McCaw said. “I’m ready to work hard and do whatever the team needs me to do. I really don’t like losing, so I’ll do whatever it takes to help us win.”
McCaw also had offers from Virginia Tech, Missouri, SMU, Oklahoma State and Providence.
