MWC Recruiting Roundup 11-19-18

Catch up on the latest offers, visits, and commits.

NCAA Football: Fresno State at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to another week of recruiting updates. Things are heating up as more commitments occur each week. You may also notice teams getting a head start on the 2020 class, with offers and some official visits occurring for recruits in that class. There were a few teams that had strong weeks, but Fresno State seemed the most balanced. The Bulldogs handed out some 2019 and 2020 offers, hosted a few visitors and picked up a commit. They take the cover photo this week.

Visit Recaps

DB Ronald Nunnery (Boise State)

“Boise State was very good. I love the defensive scheme they run and what they have going for as their program. It seems like more of a cover 3 match lots of disguising and they said I would fit perfect at the free safety spot. They said I have all the tools to play the position in their defense and it fits my style of play well. The coaches were great; all had great personalities all were easy going. The thing that stuck out to me is when they said the motive is trying to prepare you into being better throughout all aspects of life not just football. And the player to coach connections they have are great. I got to talk to Tyrique Jones; he said overall Boise is a great place to be and I thought he was cool. The players I talked to was down to earth and cool to be around. I’m signing in February so my final decisions would be around then.”

DE/LB Jaylen Pate (Wyoming)

“What really stood out to me and made an impression was the people. From the players to the fans. I was in the Denver airport and everyone waiting to get on was decked out in Wyoming gear and talking about the game tomorrow. They talked about all the nice things about the town and the team, and how much I would like it. You could really feel the statewide support. At a team dinner I was at, I had walked in and guys got from eating to come introduce themselves to my family and I which shows the type of people they are. So overall I liked the campus, peaceful vibe from the area, and the facilities, but the people: players, coaches, fans, they were all really genuine and gave off a very welcoming vibe that I hadn’t yet experienced at the others places I visited. Wyoming is definitely in my top two, along with Minnesota.”

Commitment Spotlight

OL Latrell Bible (Wyoming)

“I just had a gut feeling that it was the place for me. I’ve switched my commitment in my head many times but after further research I realized that Wyoming was the place for me and they were truly invested in me as a player and as a person. I’m excited to learn a lot from such a well renowned and amazing coaching staff as well as begin to pursue my degree. I also am excited to build new relationships with new people along the way. When I committed, I called Coach Fuchs first and when I told him his first words were “Yes, yes, yes!!!” But all the coaches were excited to hear that I had committed because when I was down there on my official Coach Bohl told me I was their top guy, so hearing my commitment had them fired up. I was told a guard position because of athleticism, they would be able to pull me a lot but they said they’d move me around. Also, I plan on signing in December.”

OL Garrett Beckman (UNLV)

“I committed because the new facilities and all that Coach Sanchez has done to really turn around not only the program but the school and city as well. I really love the offensive line coach, Coach Justice, as him and I have gotten really close over the past couple of months. One of the big reasons why Coach Justice offered me was because of my versatility. At camp back in June, I played all 5 Offensive line positions and that was a big factor in me getting offered. Besides that we haven’t really talked about how I will get used but I know once I take my official and sign with UNLV and everything they’ll be more clear about it. I believe I’m well suited on the inside as I can move very well to pull block but am also nasty when it comes to down blocks. I’m looking forward to an official visit, which I think will allow me to get a good sense on what the culture is at UNLV and what the future is going to look like. I’m excited to be a Rebel and just being able to play division 1 football has always been a dream of mine!”
