Another day, another round of links. Enjoy what we have for you today from around the conference and the college sports world in general.
Max Olson of the Athletic spends some time each year to re-rank the recruiting class from four years prior. This year is the 2018 class and three Mountain West teams are mentioned. San Diego State has the highest showing, going from 79th to 11th, and beating out every PAC 12 school in the process. Utah State makes the biggest jump, going from 109th to 24th. Also, Boise State is an honorable mention, coming in at 30th.
Spring practices are big for every team of course, but it’s even more important for teams with a new coaching staff and teams who only return a handful of starters. Nevada qualifies in both categories. The Wolf Pack will have almost a completely different coaching staff, and they will return only 6 starters from last year’s team, including just two on offense. Also, Coach Wilson is changing the spring game to a night game.
