It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

Can you tell recruiting is in a dead period?

Commits slowed way down compared to last week. And offers are also hitting a low point. In an interesting outcome of events, there were seven known offers (between four teams) and seven known commitments (between five teams) this week. Air Force had three of those seven offers, so they were a step ahead of the rest of the teams on the recruiting front this week.

Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:

  • Utah State: 6
  • Air Force: 3
  • Boise State: 3
  • New Mexico: 3
  • Colorado State: 1
  • Fresno State: 1
  • Hawaii: 1
  • UNLV: 1
  • Wyoming: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

We are not in a dead period. After this past year, everyone should be familiar with what a dead period is. There is no in-person contact permitted between coaches and recruits, either on-campus or off-campus.

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: 32

Commitment Spotlight:

QB Parker Kingston (Air Force)

“When I went out there last month I loved the atmosphere. The coaches were really cool I liked them a lot. I feel like my style of play fits their offensive scheme really well, and my receiver (Cade Harris) from last year is there right now. So it will be fun to play with him again.”

DL Mason Graham (Boise State)

“My relationship with the coaching staff was the main factor in my decision to choose Boise State at the end of the day. The coaches have a lot of knowledge about the game and I think they are only getting better and they like me to play anywhere on the D-line. It was awesome to talk to the entire staff when I was there on my visit and they are heading in an awesome direction.”

DL Aaron Jones (Colorado State)

“I chose Colorado State because the coaching staff showed me the most love and I feel like this school is the best fit for me so far. They have a game plan for me & and I fit perfectly with their system and my strengths that I will bring to the table is that I’m physical quick and explosive off the line and I also have great hands but there is also room for improvement and I know Coach Smith will help me with that so that I can be the best version and player of myself.”

OL Ethan Spencer (Hawaii)

“I chose Hawaii because of the tough football culture that Coach Graham has set in place. The pro-style offense will allow me to work and perfect my run blocking skills. The coaches really admire my leadership when we get onto the field. They like my attitude and the way I work. My relationship with them is really well, I talk with coach terry a lot, about football, or just talking story. So our relationship can be fun but also serious.”

QB Brayten Silbor (New Mexico)

“One of the biggest things for me is the relationships I have formed with the coaching staff and the way they treat their players. They are all about creating a family and being a family on and off the field. Also when I was up there in early June I loved the atmosphere they had in the weight room and during practice! They are a self driven team that I look forward to being a part of!”
