MWC Recruiting Roundup 2-14-22. Best positions by team in the 2022 Mountain West class.

NCAA Football: New Mexico at Boise State Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

With signing day over, recruiting will slow down significantly. However, our coverage will not. Over the month of February, we will be discussing different aspects of the 2022 recruiting class: our team recruiting rankings, the best-recruited positions by team, and the all-recruit sleeper team. This week will be our best-recruited positions and see below for how it all played out. They take a turn on the cover photo this week.

Below are the 10 different positions with the Mountain West teams who recruited those positions the best this season. Leading the way was Boise State, who captures another week on the banner.

With that being said, the work on the 2023 class is actually moving earlier than expected. Hawaii especially has been active on the offer front in its attempts to rebuild the program.

Class of 2021 Cover Photo Total:

  • Boise State: 7
  • Utah State: 6
  • Air Force: 5
  • Fresno State: 5
  • New Mexico: 5
  • San Diego State: 5
  • UNLV: 4
  • Hawaii: 3
  • Nevada: 3
  • Wyoming: 3
  • San Jose State: 2
  • Colorado State: 1

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.
