t’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

The second signing day is quickly approaching and recruiting updates are at an all-time high.

Roughly 113 new offers were handed out, with many coming from the transfer portal or players from future recruiting classes. In addition to this, 13 new commitments were made, as well as some official visits and a decommittment. Specifically, Colorado State, Fresno State, Hawaii, Nevada, SDSU, SJSU, and UNLV. all added to their classes. Hawaii emphasized recruiting a lot this week now that they have a coaching staff and hit big with two transfer commits. They take a turn on the cover photo this week.

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, we are back in the dead period. This lasts the entire month of February.

The most restrictive of all the recruiting periods is the NCAA Dead Period. During the dead period, coaches may not have any in-person contact with recruits and/or their parents. In other words, coaches are not allowed to talk to recruits at their college campus, the athlete’s school, an athletic camp or even the grocery store.

While the term “dead period” makes it seem like all recruiting stops during this time, that’s actually not the case. Athletes and coaches are still allowed to communicate via phone, email, social media and other digital communication channels. While NCAA Division 1 programs are prohibited from conducting any in-person recruiting, D1 college coaches can still contact student-athletes via digital forms of communication during the dead period

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: 72
