Updated April 20, 2022 - 4:42 pm

UNLV added more reinforcements from the basketball transfer portal Wednesday, as former Mississippi player Luis Rodriguez announced on Twitter that he has committed to the Rebels.

After taking a medical redshirt as a sophomore, Rodriguez has two years of eligibility remaining.

Rodriguez, a 6-foot-6-inch swingman from Los Angeles, played in parts of four seasons for Ole Miss. He averaged 6.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 32 games last season, including 23 starts. He also had 42 steals and eight blocks.

Rodriguez is the third player to commit to UNLV this week via the transfer portal, joining former Colorado wing Elijah Parquet and former Oklahoma guard Elijah Harkless.
