August Recruiting Rankings!

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

It may be the dead period but recruits can still commit and they are doing just that the past week, at least in the Mountain West Conference. Official offers went out this week, so admittedly it was a bit difficult to tell which offers were new and which ones were just cementing what had already by stated verbally. On the commit front, 14 new players pledged to join a Mountain West team this past week. Air Force led the way with an astounding 10 commits. Even keeping in mind they get way more commits than anyone else, 10 in a week is impressive. They’ll take the banner for the second week in a row, moving them into a tie for first place in our little competition.

Recruiting Calendar:

Still in the dead period.

However, you probably noticed a ton of recruits tweeting about their official offers, which went out starting August 1st. This is a great way to keep track of who schools are really focusing on now that offers are documented.

Commitment Spotlight:

QB Yaro Duvalko (Utah State)

“The main reasons I committed were the way the school and football program holds itself is incredible. Coach Andersen is a player’s coach that takes care of all aspects of football and after football life for his players. Utah State also has a Human Movement Bachelor that will allow me to become a Doctor of Chiropractic or Physical Trainer after college. Also, the QBs coach, Sanford has coached at the highest levels of Division 1 football. Him and I have a great relationship and we can’t wait to go to war on Saturdays. Coach Sanford and I have very similar mentalities. We both are extreme competitors and have sort of crazy mindset towards the offensive side of the ball. I’ve just grown close through the recruiting process and want to become his 7th QB to play in the NFL. He really likes my quick release that’s paired up with a smooth and fully extended motion. The offense I run in high school is almost identical to their fast tempo spread offense. It’s a very diverse passing look that is hard to defend when you can line up faster than the other team and have great playmakers on the perimeter.”
