RECRUITING: Lincoln County’s Walker still committed to Rebels

Lincoln County High School senior point guard Dantley Walker will remain committed to UNLV, he said late Wednesday.

Walker, who will leave on a two-year Mormon mission in August, received a phone call from new UNLV coach Dave Rice on Wednesday confirming the Rebels would hold their scholarship offer for when Walker returns in 2013.

“It’s awesome. I’m just happy to still be a Rebel,” Walker said. “I’m very excited coach Rice got the job and excited to play for him.”

Walker, the state’s all-time leader in points (3,304) and assists (887), originally committed to UNLV on Feb. 15.
