Welcome to the first roundup of 2020! Recruiting was still pretty slow over the past week, for the same reasons it was slow last week (dead period, holiday, coaches likely putting less hours in the office). On the side of the coaches, it’s smart for them to evaluate as many players as possible as they look at their recruiting boards and figure out how they want to prioritize players at each position. On the side of recruits, it’s beneficial to them to wait and see which schools get involved and offer them before committing.
Anyway, Air Force has the only commit of the week, so they take over the banner today.

Starting last week, and until mid-January, we are in a Dead Period. This is the most restrictive time of year in recruiting. Communication is minimal and no face-to-face contact is permitted.
New offers to recruits can still go out during this time and recruits can commit or decommit from schools. Once a week phone calls are still permissible, as are unlimited texts, twitter DMs and other forms of electronic communication are allowed, as long as they remain private. Also, if a recruit has already signed, then there are no restrictions
