It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.
While August continues to be one of the slower months in the recruiting calendar, there are some signs of life. Although the signs of life were not on display this week, likely because coaches are focused solely on the games at hand. As can be seen below, there were only six offers handed out by MWC teams, and one of them was for a 2023 recruit. For the first time in awhile, there were no new known commits. However, there was an official visitor who saw a live football game for first time since the 2019 season.
With no obvious winner for this week, the cover photo will go to Fresno State for hosting an official visitor and handed out one of the few offers (to a sibling of a current player to boot).
Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:
- Utah State: 6
- Air Force: 4
- Boise State: 3
- New Mexico: 3
- San Diego State: 3
- Fresno State: 2
- Wyoming: 2
- Colorado State: 1
- Hawaii: 1
- San Jose State: 1
- UNLV: 1
We are currently in a dead period for the month of August. 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.

Also, August 1st is the first day schools can send official (written) offers to players. If you see recruits tweeting official offers from schools they have already announced offers from or even committed to, this is why. Also, sometimes a recruit who previously announced an offer from a team will not receive an official offer. Official offers will often show how serious teams still are about a player.
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: 37
Houston Thomas (Fresno State)
“I liked seeing the campus and seeing how the people of Fresno are really behind the Bulldogs! I love their plan for the tight end and how they want to use me. They want me as an inline blocker and a threat to flex out as well. I have a really good relationship with Coach Creighton and Coach Albert and Coach LB. They are all awesome guys who want the best for me.”
OL Rambo Mageo (San Diego State)
“I chose San Diego State because the campus and environment are just amazing. The coaches showed a lot of love for me, especially the OL coach, Coach Goff. Staying in San Diego, you can never beat the weather.”
