October Recruiting Rankings.

NCAA Football: UNLV at Wyoming Troy Babbitt-USA TODAY Sports

Let’s talk recruiting. This past week saw a good deal of offers and visitors but no additions on the commitment front. Wyoming led the way this week with three known visitors. Thus, they are on the cover photo.

2019 Cover Photo Total:

  • Air Force: 5
  • Nevada: 4
  • Colorado State: 4
  • San Jose State: 4
  • Wyoming: 3
  • Boise State: 2
  • UNLV: 2
  • Utah State: 2
  • Fresno State: 1
  • Hawaii: 1
  • New Mexico: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

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 42 known commits.

Recruiting Rankings

Here is a look back at September rankings for comparison. (Below is September rankings)

1. Nevada

2. Fresno State


4. Boise State

5. Colorado State

6. Air Force

7. Utah State

8. Hawaii

9. Wyoming

10. San Diego State

11. San Jose State

12. New Mexico


As you know, ranking teams by tiers can sometimes explain the gaps (or lack of gaps) between teams in a way that straight rankings cannot. Here are the teams groups by tiers. If someone wanted to rerank the teams but stay within the same tier, they would have a fair case.

Tier 1: Nevada, Fresno State, UNLV

Tier 2: Boise State, Colorado State, Air Force

Tier 3: Utah State, Hawaii, Wyoming

Tier 4: San Diego State, San Jose State

Tier 5: New Mexico

The top three remained unchanged from last month. From my perspective, some spots are interchangeable, as indicated in the tiers above. I said October that things would be different but that doesn’t appear to be the case. There was a good amount of action in recruiting over the past month, but there still isn’t that much separation. October and November are usually bigger months for visits.

Visit Recap:

OL James McNorton (Wyoming)

“My host Zach Watts made it the most fun and he just sold the program to me completely. The family aspect of Wyoming is a big highlight; it’s an amazing community and it’s always growing. Also, all the coaches were super cool, I love them and they are all about me they are waiting for me to pull the trigger. I love Wyoming.”
