UNLV football adds linemen with signing day fast approaching

The UNLV football team beefed up in the trenches on Tuesday.

Defensive tackle Bruce Hester and offensive guard Justice Oluwaseun announced their oral commitments to the Rebels, a week before the official signing day.

Hester, a sophomore from Mesa Community College in Arizona, recorded 55 tackles and 4.5 sacks this past season. He stands 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 270 pounds.

Oluwaseun is a senior at Foster High School in Richmond, Texas, and is listed as a three-star recruit by 247Sports.com. Oluwaseun, 6-3 and 300 pounds, had seven other offers from programs such as Kansas, Kansas State and Tulane.

UNLV coaches are on the road visiting numerous recruits with one week left until the Feb. 1 signing day.
