MWC Recruiting Roundup 6-14-21. ALL the commit.

It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

Recruiting feels like recruiting again with players allowed to visit campuses. Schools couldn’t wait to host recruits, with many visits coming during the week as soon as the calendar turned to June. As can be seen below, offers, visits, and even commits are happening in full force, which is fun for those who follow it.

Eleven of the twelve teams handed out an offer. Likewise, (at least) ten of twelve teams hosted visitors in some capacity. That’s not even including campers, which gets a separate category in our roundup. On the commitment front, 11 players found new homes in the Mountain West, spanning 7 teams. Even though Colorado State picked up two commits, and UNLV and SJSU picked up solid new verbal pledges, it was Boise State who beat out everyone else. They got four new commits this week, including three on Sunday, and two of them are some of the best commits in the conference so far. The Broncos are on the cover photo for the third time.
