Here we go again. Get all the recruiting news from the past week in one compact article. We have your usual dose of quotes from visitors and new commits, plus our collection of all the new offers, visitors, and commits from last Monday to Sunday. Air Force picked up the most commits this week, but Wyoming got a solid pick up, so they get the banner this week.

Visit Recap

TE Kyle Helbig (Utah State)

“The atmosphere out there was amazing. Great facilities and coaches. We’ve created a great relationship with with each other. I really got to know all them a lot better this weekend. And I really like them all. We talked about academics, campus, and the playbook. Yeah I could really see myself there. They said they need a big physical athletic tight end and that’s what I am. My next visit will be CSU on the 13th.”

Commitment Spotlight

DB Allen Smith (Wyoming)

“It’s just a good place for me. It’s a real small town I feel like I can focus more and the players are great, as well as the coaches, and the students. The game experience was great! The fans were amazing and there were a lot of people there and we got the W!! When I got there, the coaching staff was amazing. They showed love right away. I talked to all the coaches and they said I fit well with the team and that I’m going to be a major impact with the defense. Overall, my relationships with them are amazing. Coach Bohl loves me a lot and I think it’s going to be great. They said my play reminds them of Tyler Hall on the team.”

LS Jesse Vasquez (Utah State)

“The family environment that Utah State football brings to the table is one of the biggest reasons why for sure! But also because at Utah State they really push you beyond your limits as a football player and also an academic making you excel to your best abilities! And Utah is just absolutely beautiful; Logan is a very big football town so I know that we always are going to have the 12th man on the field no matter where we go! Coach Collins is a great guy who really makes the team a family and for me to say that I will be a part of the best special teams unit out there now is an honor, they see me fitting very well in the family and schematically. I really try to make it a big point to run down the field after a snap and make myself a threat and the coaches love it!! As a player what separates me from a regular long snapper is my athleticism and my swagger as funny as it sounds! I want to snap but also be a threat to the other teams return unit and make them game plan around me I love to hit and love to make big plays! My swagger is that of a DB or skill guy I have fun with football I dance, dress good, and have fun celebrating with my teammates. Also I am a big film watching player... the eye in the sky doesn’t lie. I love to see what the other teams return unit is really doing and try to exploit it as much as possible. Go Aggies!”
