Lots of moving parts this past week in the recruiting world. There are six new commitments at the time of this writing, to go along with 14 new offers and at least 9 weekend visitors. Air Force had half of the commits from the week, but it was Boise State who pulled in the two most talent commits of the week. They secure the photo banner.

247 Composite MWC Team Rankings.

Visit Recap

WR Shea Whiting (Boise State)

“It was great! Me and my family really liked it. The coaches and players felt like we were already family. I felt comfortable there and really like the atmosphere from the fans all the way to the recruiters. The connected with us on more of a father figure type of view rather than a coach and they didn’t shove the “Boise State” idea down my throat. They just tried to get to know me and my family and what I like. We had conversations about everything from plans for me if I decide to come and lots of education and personal development things. Honestly we talked about football the least. It’s clear there that they have strong tradition so they touched up on it, but they just wanted to know everything about my family and the things I like and show us this is what you’re signing up for if you decided we’re your choice. I had the longest conversation actually with Coach Harsin, but I would say I talked to Coach Keyz the most. I’ve already been to Arizona and plan to go to Cal in December.”

LS Aiden Kneller (New Mexico)

“It was a great visit. The new locker room is top of the line. It has always felt like the right fit for me from the first visit. Coach Davie places a high priority on academics for the team. I’m planning on majoring in either pre-med or psychology. I briefly caught up with the coaches. I was mainly there to experience a home game this time, see the dorms, the stuff like that I haven’t gotten to do before.”

DB Keonte Glinton (Wyoming)

“The game atmosphere, & the people I was around. The people there are good people. I was amazed with how Wyoming’s defense flies to the ball every play, & you could tell they are all having fun. The fan base is crazy, everyone is involved with Wyoming football simply because that’s the only 4 year university in Wyoming. The players are influential, speaking mostly about Sean Chambers, he’s a great guy, and very positive. I’ve learned a lot about Wyoming from him this weekend. Yes, a lot of time with the coaches, we talked a lot about everything. School, family, football, for the most part giving me information on Wyoming as university. The coaches really liked my versatility and good ball skills, so I would be a great fit for the safety position on their team. That was my last visit and I plan on choosing a school soon.”

Commitment Spotlight

OL Ashton Adams (Utah State)

“There wasn’t one thing that did it for me. It was all the factors combined. People and players and coaches, and how much they all seem to want me there. I really appreciate everything they have done for me. Logan is also a perfect city for me. My coach (Alex Linnenkohl) told me that I should choose my school based on who wants me the most. And basically the coaches are just making it clear that they want me there. And the players were very outgoing and nice and that was nice because I can’t wait to play with them next year. I think I’ll end up playing either right tackle or guard. I think my pass set is better on the right side rather than the left side and I feel more comfortable in my right sided stance.”
