Jamal Aytes committed to UNLV on Monday.
Aytes, who played at San Juan Capistrano (Calif.) J Serra, began building his reputation as a high major prospect in the spring playing for Dream Vision.
A 2013 recruit, Aytes drew interest from the likes of Arizona, West Virginia, Gonzaga, BYU and others. In the end, Aytes settled on Dave Rice and UNLV.
"I'm officially a UNLV Runnin' Rebel now," Aytes tweeted.
At 6-foot-6, Aytes plays in the post. He has a strong, chiseled frame and plays a tough brand of ball in the paint. Aytes can score in a variety of ways on the block, is a good rebounder and is also capable of facing up for mid-range jumpers.
Aytes joins four-star Christian Wood, three-star guard Kendall Smith and transfer Jalen Kendrick to make up their incoming 2013 class.
