MWC Recruiting Roundup 7-29-19

Hear from the new commits.

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

Welcome to the week in between the dead period and the new dead period. Visits could be taken, so some officials and unofficials occurred this weekend. New offers were a bit sporadic (6 total), but new commits were not (9 total). Air Force led the way with 6 on their own, which means they are back on the cover photo.

2019 Cover Photo Total:

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

Recruiting Calendar:

It’s not August yet, but the week long quiet period between the 25th and 31st isn’t much more than a blip on the radar, so we may as well turn out attention to the start of the new recruiting calendar year. The big note of change is that February has changed from mostly a quiet period to a complete dead period. Not much recruiting action happens in February anyway, since offers can still be handed out during a dead period and that’s what most of February is, the change will likely just be big in name only.

Visit Recap:

“It was an unofficial visit. The coaching staff and fans were definitely highlights. Coach Bojay is a great dude and the fans love the team. He has high expectations which I like he is trying to create an environment for his players where nothing but the best is acceptable, at the same time he is funny and open about everything. They like my aggression and if I went there I think I would make a instant impact.”

Commitment Spotlight:

DB Trevon Williams (Air Force)

“The biggest factors to me committing was the way the coaching staff treated me and also the opportunities that open up 3,4,5 years down the line because of me playing for Air Force. My recruiting area coach and the DB coach contacted me every week and showed love every time they called. They cared about my family and never pressured me into making a decision even when I had other D1 offers on the table. And playing at Air Force will help propel me into my goal of practicing in the medical field. They also provide me the opportunity of free education which is also a great thing. They just told me that they were proud of me, and that I they are excited to have me join the brotherhood. They told me I was a great player and they liked the chip I have on my shoulder every time I play. How I adapt to the challenge when they acquire and face it head on. They also liked my speed and my explosiveness out of my breaks. Right now they’re recruiting me at corner but I have no problem playing all over the secondary. I feel that I would be comfortable playing safety or corner if need be. I feel as I fit right into the scheme Air Force plays in right now. Air Force plays a lot of man-to-man in the secondary which I play in high school, but I feel as I have no problem adjusting to new coverages and playing in schemes if I need to.”
