UNLV has continued to build on that Success in 2015 by landing a commitment from 2016 St. Thomas More guard Christian Vital. Vital a sharp shooter from beyond who plays with a lot of toughness was on the Las Vegas campus over the weekend for an official visit and came away impressed.

Mostly known for his outside shooting in the past, Vital is now an improved ball handler who creates shots off the dribble. As an underrated defender vital is giving Head Coach Dave Rice an athlete who likes who puts in the same effort on both ends of the floor.
