MWC Recruiting Roundup 12-20-21. Post-signing day news and a snapshot of each team.

NCAA Football: Nevada at Colorado State Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

The early signing period is over and now that we are past the whirlwind of last week, everyone can take a collective sigh of relief. Today’s post will look at all the recruiting news from Thursday on. If you want to look at what occurred on signing day, check out our tracker here.

Even though recruiting calmed down, it was still occurring. Offers were handed out, and some commitments were made. Specifically, Nevada has been active now that it has a head coach in the fold. The Wolf Pack take a turn on the cover photo.

Recruiting Calendar:

Starting today and lasting through January 14th, we are moving into a dead period. This is the most restrictive period in recruiting. Athletes and coaches can have no face-to-face contact of any kind. However, they can still communicate with one another in some forms. The official definition is below:

The most restrictive of all the recruiting periods is the NCAA Dead Period. During the dead period, coaches may not have any in-person contact with recruits and/or their parents. In other words, coaches are not allowed to talk to recruits at their college campus, the athlete’s school, an athletic camp or even the grocery store.

While the term “dead period” makes it seem like all recruiting stops during this time, that’s actually not the case. Athletes and coaches are still allowed to communicate via phone, email, social media and other digital communication channels. While NCAA Division 1 programs are prohibited from conducting any in-person recruiting, D1 college coaches can still contact student-athletes via digital forms of communication during the dead period.

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: 60
