The 6-foot-3-inch Victor graduated in 2018 from Pomona, California, where he played wide receiver and defensive back — posting 398 receiving yards, 37 tackles and three interceptions as a senior in 2017.

He recorded seven tackles in six games for Ventura as a freshman in 2019 and will have one more year of junior college before joining UNLV in 2021 as the sixth member of the recruiting class.
