MWC Recruiting Roundup 8-10-20

The latest recruiting news in the Mountain West.

NCAA Football: UNLV at Nevada David Calvert-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, another recruiting roundup.

One thing you may have noticed on Twitter this weekend was recruits tweeting about official offers. August 1st is the first day schools can give written or official offers. If you follow the recruiting of your favorite team closely, you may notice some verbal offers from the spring aren’t always backed up by official written offers. It’s a good time of year to see who are the high school athletes a team is actually recruiting strongly.

This week brought 13 new verbals in to the Mountain West. Air Force had a good week and San Diego State would’ve “won” in most weeks, picking up three new commits, but UNLV had almost half the commits in the conference with six in the past week. That’s why they are featured on the cover photo this week.

Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:

  • Air Force: 5
  • New Mexico: 4
  • Colorado State: 4
  • UNLV: 3
  • San Diego State: 2
  • Nevada: 2
  • Fresno State: 2
  • 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: 32
