MWC Recruiting Roundup 8-12-19

Take a look at the newest commits in the Mountain West.

NFL scout Preston Williams

Another week means another recruiting roundup. This week featured quite a bit of new players committed to Mountain West schools, seven in one week. But on the other hand, there were very little offers, with just one. For the cover photo, it was actually one of the tightest races of the year. Colorado State, Boise State, and UNLV each had two new commitments and nothing really separated them. Thankfully, the Rams also extended the lone known offer of the week, so they win the week by the slimmest or margins.

2019 Cover Photo Total:

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

Recruiting Calendar:

Recruiting isn’t dead, but the period sure is.

Commitment Spotlight:

OL Jeminai Leuta-ulu (UNLV)

“I committed to UNLV because both my family and I felt very comfortable with, not only the football program, but the school as well. What caught my attention is the coaches and counselors repeatedly asked about my family, and it just made me feel at home. Well it wasn’t really what they told me, they just constantly reminded me everyday that they were very interested in having my family and I at UNLV for the next four years. They just keep telling me I am on the top of their list as a offensive lineman. Technique and footwork are qualities I value in myself for sure. And they plan to use me as an offensive guard.”

LB Iopu Tauiliili (UNLV)

“Well first off it’s close to home not to far from my family. Also I’ll be the first class to play in the new stadium. Also I love the coaching staff they believe that I have what it takes to become something great. Oh man Coach Sanchez & Coach Skip think I can get the job done, they said they like the way I play football. They are taking me as an outside linebacker. I feel like I can cover anyone at that spot. So I’m fired up being REBEL!”
