UNLV missed out on five-star recruit Isaac Hamilton earlier this week, but that hasn't stopped the Rebels from moving forward.
Rivals.com five-star prospect Jermaine Lawrence will visit UNLV November 23-25.
The lanky 6-10 senior is rated as 21st best player in the class of 2013 by Rivals.com. UNLV will be his first official visit. He currently holds offers from a slew of schools but has recently trimmed his list down to UNLV, Cincinnati, St. John's and Syracuse. Kentucky, UCLA and Kansas were cut from his list earlier this month.
Lawrence, who thrives in the open court, may be a perfect fit in Dave Rice's up-tempo system. Being the only school west of the Mississippi, it may be tough for the Rebels to pull Lawrence from the east. One advantage UNLV may have in their corner is his close relationship with freshman Savon Goodman.
Lawrence will be able to attend a couple of games on his visit. While he is in town, the Runnin' Rebels will host Oregon and Iowa State/Cincinnati in the Global Sports Classic.
Lawrence can be followed on twitter @mainestory.
