Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman safety Charles Childers, who was the top defensive performer at the Phoenix UnderArmour/Scout.com Combine this spring, landed his first offer on Monday evening.
"I just received an offer from UNLV (Monday)," said Childers. "My family and I are really excited."
In Phoenix, Childers was the top defensive back on the day and was an all-combine selection, just missing MVP honors.
With the first offer under his belt, Childers is hoping the floodgates open.
"I am really excited about my opportunities going forward," Childers said.
A big hitter and good cover safety, Childers helped Bishop Gorman to the 2007 state title in Nevada.
Through five games, he has six receptions for 111 yards and two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Gaels, who are 4-1.
