Let’s talk recruiting.

NCAA Football: San Jose State at Air Force Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

This was a great week for mid-season recruiting. It had everything you’d want and one or two things you wouldn’t want. Offers for this class, offers for next year’s class. Visits to schools. A bunch of new verbal commits and unfortunately, one top conference player who decommitted.

Visit Recap:

JUCO OL Riden Leong (Boise State)

“I loved it. Just the culture, the people, the coaching staff, and just the vibe, but most importantly the O-line coach (Bedell) over there. To me he really cares about the O-line and his guys, and the people that he recruited are super cool and they play around but when it’s time to put work in they do and that’s what I really like. He’s straight forward, he didn’t push me to commit or anything, he’s a really good guy. The players are awesome. They are all super cool guys, and there are a couple of Hawaii people on the team, and I asked them how they liked it and they said the love it there. The head coach (Harsin) is straight up, which I really like and he is all about the culture.”

RB Daveon Hunter (Wyoming)

“My first offical was great went up there not knowing what to expect and at the end it was better then I could have expected , got a chance to learn more about the school and how it works . They got something good going down there.

Commitment Spotlight

LS Nick Barcelos (Nevada, PWO)

“I really felt comfortable from my first visit to Reno. I was there for the spring game and was able to meet the coaches and most of the football staff. I attended their camp in July and spent the day on the field and in meetings with Coach Perry, Coach Ray and Coach Davis a got a feel of their coaching style. I knew there was a chance for me to come in right away and compete to play and that was very important. Then, a couple of weeks ago I came up with my family to have them spend a few days on and around campus. We were able to take a more in depth tour of campus and meet with an Engineering advisor and see the new Engineering building, which will open next fall. I also spent a lot of time around the staff and the players and really felt at home and part of the family. I’m excited for the opportunity and can’t wait to join The Pack!

WR Latrell Caples (Boise State)

“I committed because I love to win and they win the most. I can also tell that they really care about the players and I feel like they can make me a better player as well as a better person and I can help out the offense. The coaching staff was all fired up when I told them I committed. I don’t quite know how I’ll be used in their offense yet , but I think I’d fit in anywhere.”
