It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.
Recruiting for the class of 2022 is in full force in Mountain West, as new offers are coming out in droves each and every week. With some states playing their football season this spring, coaches can see athletes play and hand out offers accordingly.
Teams continued to be active, with seven of the twelve teams offering players. On the commitment front, there weren’t any new high school commits in the 2022 class. Expect that to change when the calendar turns to June and official visits can take place, as well as summer camps. Consider now the calm before the storm. New Mexico continues to be active, handing out 12 offers and gaining two new commits this week. The Lobos take their third week on the cover photo.
Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:
- Utah State: 5
- Air Force: 2
- New Mexico: 2
- Boise State: 1
- Colorado State: 1
- Fresno State: 1
- Wyoming: 1
Starting June 1st, recruiting will resume, thanks to the latest NCAA Council ruling. Here are the main points:
- The recruiting calendar will resume June 1st
- State laws will still override the blanket NCAA ruling
- On-campus evaluations can take place during unofficial visits occurring during camps and clinics in June and July.
- The number of evaluation days in the sport will increase from 42 to 56 during the fall 2021 evaluation period only.
- Telephone calls are allowed during a prospective student athlete’s junior year or the 2021-22 academic year only.
- Any full-time institutional staff members, current students, and all coaches can initiate recruiting calls for this recruiting cycle.
Another thing that will begin to happen in June is the return of recruiting camps. These will take place both on campus as well as satellite camps, which caused quite a stir a few years ago. Here is a running list of which teams have announced camp dates so far:
Air Force: June 21
Boise State: June 12, June 15
Colorado State: June 6, 11, 18, July 30
Fresno State: June 4, 17

UNLV: June 12, 27
Utah State: June 12, 15, 22, 26
Wyoming: June 12th
Air Force Commitment Tracker:
