The Nevada football team received National Letters of Intent from a pair of junior college transfers as part of a three-player mid-year transfer class, head coach Chris Ault announced Wednesday.
The three players who will be enrolling in January are: Maurice Patterson, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound wide receiver from Palomar College in Southern California; Jose Acuna, a, 6-foot-6, 308-pound offensive lineman from Mt. San Jacinto College in Southern California; and Jack Reynoso, a 6-foot-3, 275-pound defensive lineman from Del Oro High School in Loomis, Calif. All three will be eligible to participate in spring drills.
“Jose Acuna has good size and strength and he moves well for a big man. We are expecting him to compete right away when spring drills begin,” Ault said. “Maurice Patterson runs a 10.5 in the 100 meters so he has excellent speed to go with his size. He has a great opportunity to fill one of the voids left by our graduating class of receivers.”
Acuna and Patterson will both be juniors while Reynoso, who signed with Nevada in February but delayed enrollment to perserve a year of eligibility, will be a freshman in the fall.
“Jack is a freshman grayshirt who is a strong physical defensive lineman who should fit in well with our four-man front,” Ault said.
