Nate Starks and Nick Gates land SEC offers today; five in total have D1 offers

Nevada's top football program, Las Vegas Bishop Gorman has been a great program for years. But over the past two-three years, since the Gaels have started playing a more national schedule, the program has absolutely exploded.

Head coach Tony Sanchez has been at the helm four years, won four state titles and compiled a record of 57-3.

The 2013 version doesn't appear to be slowing down. Sanchez says, "We've got some good ones."

And that is an understatement.

Sanchez confirmed today that two of his players received offers from Alabama.

Four-star RB/S Nathan Starks and OT Nick Gates were offered by the SEC power.

Both have multiple offers; Starks from Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, Duke, UCLA and Utah and Gates (6-5 290) from Arizona, Colorado State, Nevada, San Diego State and Washington State.

Starks (6-0 215), who is being recruited on both sides of the ball, rushed for 1,821 yards and 27 TDs as a junior.

But it doesn't stop with those two. Three more players from the 2014 class have division-one scholarship offers and there are certain to be more.

Quarterback Randall Cunningham has already been offered by Baylor, LSU, Mississippi State, Syracuse and UNLV despite not starting as a junior. He played behind Anu Solomon, who signed with Arizona. In relief duty, Cunningham went 21 of 32 for 298 yards and 2 TDs versus 4 INTs. On the ground he rushed for 483 yards and on just 42 carries and scored 7 more TDs.

Defensive end Isaiah Nacua (6-3 255) has committed to BYU and Sanchez tells us that defensive back Armand Perry holds offers from New Mexico State and Nevada.

Keep an eye on big defensive tackle Zach Singer (6-4 300). Sanchez expects him to receive offers as well.
