Gaines (6-foot-1, 290 pounds) also had offers from Colorado and Nevada. "I've been thinking about it for a while," he said. "I was thinking about doing it last weekend. I thought I'd wait a little longer and I decided it was the place for me. ... Everything seems like the right fit for me. I can go hunting and fishing - everything I want to do."

Senior Hayley Young tied for seventh at 11-over 227 and was named second-team All-Mountain West. UNLV (904) won the team title.

IDAHO STATE SPRING FOOTBALL: The Bengals' defense forced three turnovers and had six sacks in the 2013 Dave Kragthorpe Classic at Holt Arena. Junior quarterback Justin Arias was 22-of-32 with 199 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Redshirt freshman Broc Malcolm had eight receptions for 107 yards and one touchdown. "It was a lot of fun," coach Mike Kramer said. "I think we see what's happening is that we have a lot of young players who can make plays. I thought Arias played very well and our defense played well against the run. All in all, our good guys played good and our young guys showed their potential."
