The University of Nevada football team has signed another student athlete to a National Letter of Intent, Wolf Pack coach Chris Ault announced today.
Nevada has received a signed NLI from Darvin McCauley, a wide receiver from Grant High School in Sacramento, Calif. McCauley is a 5-foot-11, 190-pound wide receiver who helped Grant to the California state championship as a senior during the 2008 season.
“For our program, recruiting is a year-round focus and we always are looking for student-athletes who may have been overlooked,” Ault said. “Darvin is someone who we have been recruiting for some time now. He accomplished what he needed to do in the classroom and we are excited to get him into our program in the fall. He has great speed and the upside for him in our program is that he can play any of the receiver positions in the Pistol offense.”
McCauley totaled nearly 1,100 yards and 16 touchdowns for Grant High in 2008. In the state championship game against Long Beach Poly, then the No. 2-ranked team in the nation, McCauley had eight catches for 135 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including the game-winning TD in the waning moments
Nevada opens the 2009 season on Sept. 5 at Notre Dame.
