Best Decision By a Local Kid (According to UNLV Fans)

Stephen Zimmerman

stephen_zimmerman_by_anthony_mair_WEBAs Chris Rock famously said, a man is only as faithful as his options. And prep wunderkind Stephen Zimmerman had options: The 7-foot Bishop Gorman grad could have chosen anywhere in the country to play college ball, and the nation’s most iconic programs wanted him, from Kentucky to Kansas to North Carolina to Indiana to UCLA. But in the end, Zimmerman wasn’t swayed by the grass-is-greener lure of some faraway campus, choosing instead to stay home and play his one collegiate season (maybe two, if the Rebels are lucky) at UNLV. For that decision alone, Zimmerman cemented himself as a hero to the Scarlet and Gray fanatics.
