It’s Monday and that means it’s time for Mountain West recruiting updates. Although the dead period has overtaken July, this is the first week it’s really been noticeable on the recruiting update front. One lone commit, from Air Force, and single digit offers (eight) across the conference. Even so, we caught up with two commits from the previous week, which can be seen below. Wyoming was the most active this week, with five of the ten offers handed out. Thus, they debut on the cover photo this week.

2019 Cover Photo Total:

  • Nevada: 4
  • Colorado State: 3
  • San Jose State: 2
  • UNLV: 2
  • Air Force: 2
  • Fresno State: 1
  • Boise State: 1
  • Utah State: 1
  • Hawaii: 1
  • New Mexico: 1
  • Wyoming: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

July keeps moving forward one day at a time. With it, comes the end of a dead period this week. But really only for a short time. This Thursday the 25th signals the start of a quiet period. Coach can have face to face contact with recruits on campus. That’s good. However, next Wednesday, July 31st signals the end of the quiet period and then all of August is back in a dead period. That’s not as fun. So enjoy the week of change while you can.

Commitment Spotlight:

LB Alex Morrison (Air Force)

“For me, Air Force was the best mix of great football and great academics. The coaching staff is always great to be around and easy to talk to and they’re just great people in general. Plus the way Air Force sets you up for after graduation is hard to beat. Coach Vanderlinden, who is the linebackers coach, also recruits Michigan so it was great to have my future position coach recruit me to build that relationship early. He has a lot of experience at the college level and has coached a lot of great players which was big for me. Also Coach Rudzinski, the DC, and Coach Calhoun are great coaches who are fun to be around. When I visited Air Force it was pretty clear to me that these were the kinds of coaches I wanted to have in my future. The coaches said they really liked my athleticism, physicality, and speed to go from sideline to sideline and to chase people down and see me at an inside spot. Coach Vanderlinden said I remind him a lot of Kyle Johnson, a senior linebacker at AF right now. They say I can make a big impact there.”

WR Issac Jernagin (Nevada)

“I committed to Nevada because Coach Eric Scott showed me more love than any other school. Coach Jay Norvell was the most honest and genuine when he told me if I committed and if something happened like injury my commitment would stand. I was like they really think highly of me. They showed me love with truly letting me know where I stood in recruiting, letting me know I was their #1 WR recruit. Reaching out on my birthday with edits and messages. They were honest about their offer from my sophomore year until now; it was real from day one. Unlike others which I think were just acknowledgements of me being a prospect but not a recruit that was on their board. Well in this Air Raid era, most say I’m the perfect fit. But some schools tried to play the size, measurable’s thing with me until I went to Nike regionals and the Open and consistently ran 4.4 and jump 48 inch vertical. So all the ‘he’s 5’9.5’ went out the window I think. I mean Antonio Brown and I are the same size. My strengths are my explosion off the ball, route running and what I do after the catch. I’m a converted running back so I still like YAC! Also I’m a receiver that can play slot or outside. That’s Coach E Scott teaching me not to be pegged as just a slot.”

Nick Session (Utah State)

“The main thing that made me commit was the unconditional love I was receiving almost day after day! From the entire coaching staff. I felt very loved and wanted there. And many people in my corner was telling me go where you’re loved and wanted so that’s one thing that played a role. They’ve just been there for me since the beginning of my recruiting. They told me that they would come hard for me and they did. They send me mail just checking up on me and text messages. They even text my family just to check up on them and see how they doing which is like simple but is huge at the same time. I can hit them up at any time just to get help with school. They’ve also been supportive throughout the whole recruiting process helping me. They didn’t put pressure on me to come and commit there right away but they did show that they wanted me really bad and I just fell in love with them. They are taking me as safety and maybe also nickel and I really like playing in the box and also playing man as well. At Utah State they give me a chance to do both. In their scheme their safety rolls up in the box and sometimes we’ll play 2-deep safety as well. So I really think I’m going to fit into the scheme very well. So I made my decision to commit there and become a Aggie.”
