MWC Recruiting Roundup 6-7-21. June Team Recruiting Rankings.

NCAA Football: Wyoming at UNLV Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

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, there were a ton of visits and many of those were followed by offers, which also increased this week. Expect offers to increase again during and after camps, when coaches get to see players live on the field for the first time in at least a year and a half.

Nine of the twelve teams handed out an offer to at least one player this week. On the visit front, (at least) ten of twelve teams hosted visitors in some capacity. This week could go to a few teams, but UNLV seemed to stick out more than other teams this week in thanks to their combination of new offers and a number of visitors. This is the Rebels first week on the cover photo.

Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:

  • Utah State: 5
  • New Mexico: 3
  • Air Force: 2
  • Boise State: 1
  • Colorado State: 1
  • Fresno State: 1
  • UNLV: 1
  • Wyoming: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

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:

Recruiting Camps:

Air Force: June 21

Boise State: June 12, June 15

Colorado State: June 6, 11, 18, July 30

Fresno State: June 4, 17

Nevada: June 14, 17, 19, 20, July 31

SJSU: June 15

UNLV: June 12, 27

Utah State: June 12, 15, 22, 26

Wyoming: June 12th

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: 4

June Team Recruiting Rankings:

Here are the May ones to compare.

Disclaimer: These rankings are not a projection of what will happen, but a snapshot of where things stand now.

1) Utah State

2) Boise State

3) Fresno State


5) New Mexico

6) Air Force

7) Wyoming

8-12) Everyone else

Not many changes from last month. UNLV moves up as they, similar to Boise State, have a low number of commits but high quality. On the opposite end of the spectrum, teams like Utah State and Fresno State have a high number of commits. The other ranked teams fall someone in between and everyone else is without a commitment.

As I said last month, the rankings are currently a quality vs quantity debate with polarizing results on both sides of the argument. Some readers will disagree and that is okay, but for me, 8 commits this early in the cycle wins out for the time being. The question is, for how long will that win out?
