A couple of standouts at smaller schools have parlayed their successes into roster spots at UNLV.

San Francisco's Uche Ofoegbu and Milwaukee's Jordan Johnson each announced their transfers Wednesday to the Runnin' Rebels.

Ofoegbu, who began his career with SMU before transferring to San Francisco, averaged 9.2 points and 4.6 rebounds for the Dons last season. As a grad transfer, he'll be able to play for UNLV immediately.

Johnson, meanwhile, comes to Vegas as an undergraduate, meaning he'll have to sit out the 2016-17 campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer rules before getting to play out his last year of eligibility in 2017-18. He averaged 12.5 points and 8.1 assists with the Panthers last season.
