MWC Recruiting Roundup 10-7-19

The latest MWC recruiting news.

NCAA Football: UNLV at Wyoming Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

It was a slower in-season week for recruiting, but there are updated nevertheless. Quite a few new offers were handed out this week, if you noticed. The timing is fitting, as many high school recruits have their four-game/first-half films out and players who were on the bubble for an offer now have more film for college coaches to analyze. Hawaii hosted a pair of official visitors, while other teams opted for unofficial visitors this weekend. Wyoming offered a few new players and flipped a player from a conference team, so they land on the photo banner.

Visit Recap:

LB Vai Kaho (Nevada)

“The highlights of my visit were being around the teammates and the coaches. The campus is really pretty. The coaches are great, they just preached that change is coming. Coach Norvell is making changes in order to build a program that can compete for conference championships, that’s what the goal is. They talked to me quite a bit. They said I’m special. They have always believed in me and they expressed that to me. I’m ready to just play ball there next year.”

LB Mason Cobb (Colorado State)

“It felt like home and the coaches did an amazing job of showing my family and I around. Being offered on the field before the game was amazing! Coach Bobo really made an effort to make it happen. The facilities are amazing but the way the coaches treated my family and I spoke a lot of volume. Yes I talked with the coaches a lot and just went over expectations they have and that they want to build something and how excited they were that I made it out there and just talked about each other’s families and just stated to build a relationship. Yeah I could definitely picture myself there. Love the defensive staff!”

OL Jacob Hudson (Nevada)

“I chose to walk-on at Nevada because it’s the best fit for me and it’s close to home makes it easy for the family. And a fun fact is that Coach Angus played offensive line with my o-line coach at sac state back in the day. The way he coaches players, it just reminds me of my coach and that’s great.
