AUDIO – UNLV commit Donavan Yap explains why he chose to stay home

T.J Otzelberger took the UNLV job with the goal of building a fence around Las Vegas.

So far, so good.

Last week, the first year Runnin Rebels coach landed another commit from a Las Vegas local in Donavan Yap.

The 6-foot-4, 160-pound Yap plays his high school ball for Arbor Vview in the Northwest part of the city.

A pure scoring point guard, Yap had begun to blow up on the hoops circuit this summer.

He had offers from Minnesota, Washington State, San Diego State, Reno, Fresno State, Grand Canyon and Colorado State. And recently got interest from Villanova and Texas Tech.

Yap joined Cofield and Co. on Friday
