Full Circle for Linton
La Mesa (Calif.) Helix receiver Sean Linton has been a big part of the Highlanders squad the past two years, despite their being an array of talent on the Helix campus. Yet it was at UNLV back in March at the Badger/Scout 7on7 tournament that Linton catapulted himself into the prospect mix, earning All-Tournament honors after helping his California squad to the title of the tournament. UNLV offered Linton later in the spring and this weekend, Linton's recruitment came full circle, with the 6-2, 190-pound receiver committing to the Rebels on his official visit. "I just committed to UNLV on Friday," said Linton. "I just got back from my official visit there." Linton was in Las Vegas this weekend to see the UNLV campus much more up close and personal than he did in March, and also saw the Rebels face BYU. "My host was Charles Childers," said Linton. "The visit was cool. I was able to go through the meetings and meals and walkthrough to see what it's like." Linton said the overall package that UNLV offered helped make his decision easier. "The coaches and players were what made me pick UNLV," said Linton. "I like everything about the school and I know I will fit in well with their spread offense. So I'm real excited to be a part of their team." Linton got to spend a lot of time with the UNLV coaches. "I spent most of my time with Coach (Jed) Stugart, Coach (Mike) Sanford, Coach Cink (Kris Cinkovich) and Coach (Todd) Berry," said Linton. "They are all really good coaches and I have a great relationship with them." With the decision out of the way, Linton said he's glad it's done. "Yeah, I'm definitely glad to be done," said Linton.
