If you want recruiting news, we got a little bit of everything for you today. Offers, visits, commits, decommits, new rankings and hearing from recruits. This week is full of recruiting news so take a look below. Colorado State picked up a pair of commits this week so they are featured for the week.

  • Air Force: 5
  • Colorado State: 5
  • Nevada: 4

  • UNLV: 2
  • Utah State: 2
  • Fresno State: 1
  • Hawaii: 1
  • New Mexico: 1

Contact period until end of November

Air Force Commit Tracker:

Since the Air Force Academy routinely has near 100 commits each year, let’s start tracking the number and see how it rises between now and February.

  • The Falcons are at 48 known commits.

November Recruiting Rankings:

Apparently I didn’t do any rankings for October? And no one told me! Anyway, here’s September and as you can imagine, a lot has changed since then.

1. Boise State

2. Nevada

3. UNLV

4. Wyoming

5. Colorado State

6. Fresno State

7. SJSU

8. Air Force

9. Hawaii

10. SDSU

11. Utah State

12. New Mexico

Lots of movement, as stated above. Boise State has begun to fill up their commitment list, as they usually do in October. Nevada on the other hand, did most of their heavy lifting over the summer and now other teams are starting to catch up. CSU is rising while FSU is falling after losing two verbal pledges. Wyoming and UNLV have been solid this cycle so far, SDSU and Hawaii aren’t quite up to their normal standard yet. Air Force is always difficult to place but perhaps isn’t quite at the same quality yet as they were last year and SJSU is doing fine but nothing much of not yet. Utah State is probably feeling the transition of a new staff. New Mexico gets a late start in recruiting with all the JUCOs and they are starting to offer them now. We’ve previously shared our thoughts on their philosophy and will going forward, so won’t go in depth about it here.

Visit Recap:

LB Davion Blackwell (Nevada)

“This weekend was one too remember. The whole whole coaching staff and players really made me feel at home with this visit. The way they greeted my family and I was just amazing. There were no flaws what so ever. We mainly talked about how I would fit in to Nevadas scheme. And talking about how my life would be planned out. They said that I could play all 3 linebacker positions and drop down safety as well because of my size and athleticism. And the way I can cover my opponent. I do see my self playing there but I’m still keeping my options open. I have Fresno state and San Jose state officials coming up in December”

LB Dahlin Mesake (Utah State)

“I’d say the highlights of the visit were seeing student section during the game and just being around the coaches and players. The coaches and I mainly discussed enrolling early and playing time. Without a doubt I can picture myself fitting in with the current players! They were all very welcoming towards me and my family. I mean just overall I loved it I think the coaches are going to make Utah State a great team I was blown away by the fans they are crazy and I can’t wait to play for them.”

Commitment Spotlight:

QB Logan Fife (Fresno State)

“I have been close with Coach Tedford and pretty much the whole coaching staff since I was a freshman. I love the school and have wanted to go to Fresno state since I was younger. And the offense Fresno has just fits me better because I like to throw the ball. Tedford has a great history of producing Qbs to the NFL and I look forward to learning a lot from coach tedford through the next few years. I was on the phone with the QB coach when he was in an offensive meeting and put me on speaker and the whole Offensive staff was really excited and was really happy.”

WR Chance Luper (Boise State)

“My favorite thing about the Boise State program is that they win and they get players where they need to be through their development. The coaching staff was very open from the beginning and patient with my decision. They told me I could play early depending on how things shake out but we will see.

LB Jarin Johnson (Air Force)

“Being able to finally lay my eyes on a great place that represents all my values within football and outside of the game. I was finally able to visualize a definite success in my future. Coach Morris is very relatable to me and my background so being able to see eye to eye with a Coach makes you want to play for him that much more. Coach Knorr and Calhoun showed nothing less than love to me and my family. I will be playing the strong safety outside linebacker position but I will be attending prep school my first year.”

DL James Mitchell (Colorado State)

“I committed because it was the best decision for me and my family and I really fell in love with Fort Collins as soon as I stepped foot on campus. Not too far away from home. I feel like I can come in and contribute in the defense they run because it’s the exact same scheme at Duncanville. All around a perfect fit me. I have a strong relationship with the coaches and when I told the coaches my decision they went crazy especially coach BoBo and his family in the background. I made their night.”
