Another week, another recruiting roundup.

Thankfully, offers are still being handed out (but not physically, don’t worry) from schools to recruits. This week, there were 89 offers handed out, and 10 of the 12 teams were responsible for those offers. Even some 2023 offers were announced by recruits. Again, New Mexico led the way with 23 new offers as well as three new commitments.

The Lobos recruiting efforts under Gonzales and his staff have been nothing short of a revelation. It was barely an afterthought in the prior regime but now it is easy to see it’s the lifeblood of the new rebuilding program. They are handing out tons of offers, which can sometimes have mixed results, but with six verbal commitments already, it is clear the offers are more the result of hard-working relationships than lip-service offers.

  • New Mexico: 4
  • UNLV: 2
  • Air Force: 1
  • Hawaii: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

From March 1st until April 14th, we are in the time known as the Quiet Period. New offers will still go out and recruits may take unofficial visits to a college campus. What you will see most often are teams hosting Junior Days. From NCAAsports.org:

The NCAA defines the quiet period as a time when “a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents off the college campus and may not watch student-athletes compete or visit their high school.” To break it down, the NCAA Quiet Period is a time you can talk to college coaches in-person on their college campus. However, the coach is not allowed to watch athletes compete in-person, visit their school, talk to them at their home—or talk to them anywhere outside of the college campus. The goal of this period is to give elite recruits a break from getting visited by college coaches at their games and at their home. For average recruits, this time will feel like a contact period. You can still text, call, email or direct message coaches during this time—and you should be reaching out to stay proactive in your recruiting.

As of Friday the 13th, we are in a mandatory Dead Period.

Update: The dead period has been extended until May 31st.
