MWC Recruiting Roundup 7-27-20

The latest recruiting news in the conference.

NCAA Football: Cheez-It Bowl-Air Force vs Washington State Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another recruiting roundup.

The offers and committed continue to pour in. In general, players are committing much earlier this recruiting cycle. Although many recruits have also said it’s difficult to have schools stand out from one another without being able to visit in person. It’s polarizing to say the least.

This week brought 14 new verbals in to the Mountain West for the second week in a row. A number of schools had good weeks, with UNLV and Nevada each picking up a pair of new verbals, and Fresno State got another commit following their fantastic week. The Falcons gained five new commitments, and in doing so they recapture the cover photo and the overall lead.

Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:

  • Air Force: 5
  • New Mexico: 4
  • Colorado State: 4
  • San Diego State: 2
  • UNLV: 2
  • Nevada: 2
  • Fresno State: 1
  • Hawaii: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

The dead period is still alive. But based on what the NCAA is allowing, it seems more like a contact period to some degree, as coaches can have unlimited calls and video meetings during this time.

Update: This has been extended through August 31st.

Air Force Commitment Tracker:

Looks like it’s time to bring this back. Since the Air Force Academy regularly has around 100 commits in each class, it’s kind of fun to track them over the course of the year.

Number of Falcon verbal commits: 29
