Another week, another recruiting roundup.
Recruiting hit its peak this with all the movement leading up to signing day and things slow down now with the holidays. Normally, this would be a dead period anyway, but the whole year has technically been a dead period. With two teams focusing more on completing coaching staffs, and many other teams who have completed their classes or nearly have, it’s safe to say recruiting is close to a halt this past week.
Some teams took another step in their 2022 classes with adding transfers. Air Force, Hawaii, Nevada, UNLV, Utah State, and SDSU all gained commits. The Aggies secured two commits via the transfer portal as they add to their class. For their efforts, they are on the banner this week.
Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:
- Air Force: 8
- Colorado State: 6
- New Mexico: 5
- San Diego State: 5
- Boise State: 4
- Nevada: 3
- UNLV: 3
- Wyoming: 3
- Fresno State: 2
- San Jose State: 2
- Utah State: 2
- Hawaii: 1
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: The Dead Period has been extended through March 2021.
Air Force Commitment Tracker:
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: 68
