MWC Recruiting Roundup 1-10-22. The latest news, offers, and commitments from around the Mountain West.

It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

The early signing period is over and now that we are past the whirlwind of last week, everyone can take a collective sigh of relief. However, the dead period ends later this week and things have already begun to ramp up a bit once again.

This week felt more like a normal recruiting week, whatever that means. Roughly 30 new offers were handed out, with many coming from the transfer portal or players from future recruiting class. In addition to this, thirteen new commitments were made, as well as five decommittments (as Colorado State continues to transition its recruiting class). Specifically, Air Force, Boise State Colorado State, Fresno State, Nevada, San Diego State, Utah State, and Wyoming all added to their classes. Wyoming was more active than they have been in awhile, and take a turn on the cover photo.

A note about this recruiting cycle:

A note with all of the CFB transfers: Schools can replace up to seven of them with extra recruits in the 2022 signing class, so classes will be bigger.

That only applies for players who enter the portal after their school’s fall term or Dec. 15 whichever is earlier.

Recruiting Calendar:

Starting today, the week gets a bit odd. It is a quiet period for three days, with a dead period day on Thursday, before the contact period resumes on Friday at 12:01 am. Since the contact period is what really matters, let’s focus on that. The official definition is below:

The NCAA Contact Period is exactly what it sounds like—all communication between athletes and coaches is fair game. Coaches can email, text, call, direct message and generally contact athletes and their parents through any NCAA-approved method. In-person contact can occur on the college campus, as well as at tournaments, at the recruit’s school and home. In other words, the communication floodgates are open, so take advantage of this opportunity to get unlimited access to talk to coaches.

Air Force Commitment Tracker:

Since the Air Force Academy regularly has by far the most commits among Mountain West recruiting classes, it’s kind of fun to track them over the course of the year.

Number of Falcon verbal commits: 67
