Anthony Bennett is one of the biggest recruits in the history of the UNLV program because of his high national ranking (No. 7), his ties to the program and his ability to come in and elevate the program right away.

The five-star power forward from Brampton, Ontario, who played his high school ball at Findlay Prep in Las Vegas, regularly attended UNLV home games during its 26-win season.
