LAS VEGAS (AP) Marvin Menzies has added three more players to his first recruiting class at UNLV.

Transfers Uche Ofoegbu (OO-chay oh-FAY-boo) and Jordan Johnson signed financial aid agreements on Wednesday, and Djordjije Slijivancanin (GEORGE-ee slee-VAUNCH-en-in) signed a national letter of intent to play for the Runnin’ Rebels.

Ofoegbu, a 6-foot-4 guard, is a graduate transfer from San Francisco and will be eligible to play right away. He averaged 9.2 points and shot 50 percent last season.

Johnson, a 5-9 guard, will have to sit out the 2016-17 season after transferring from Milwaukee, where he averaged 12.5 points and 8.1 assists per game.

Slijivancanin, a 6-10 forward from Serbia, spent part of the last year at IMG Academy in Florida. UNLV also signed Zion Morgan, a guard from Chicago, on Tuesday.
