It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.
The calendar has turned to September and recruiting will be gaining steam over the next few weeks as we hit the prime period of the recruiting cycle. While things were still slow this week, expect that to change as the month goes on. Teams will be hosting official visitors and commitments will be plentiful once again in due time.
As for this week, there wasn’t much noteworthy news. Air Force picked up a new commitment and Nevada (3) and UNLV (2) handed out the offers, with the Wolf Pack using the week to offer 2023 players. Take your pick on who gets the cover photo, but the choice here is Nevada, who has their first week on the photo.
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
- Nevada: 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, September 1st is the first day schools can actively recruit players in the 2023 class through letters, emails, texts, and social media.
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: 38

As many of you may know by now, I like to also break lists like these down into tiers. Tiers can be helpful to provide a different angle to look at things. If one made an argument for flipping some of the spots on this list but kept them within the same tier, I wouldn’t put up much of a debate.
Tier 1: Boise State,
Tier 2: San Deigo State, Utah State
Tier 3: San Jose State, Nevada, Colorado State
Tier 4: UNLV, Air Force
