Recruiting Calendar:

As of March 1st, we are in the spring evaluation period. dead period. This lasts until mid-April.

Next College Student Athlete says:

The NCAA defines the quiet period as a time when “a college coach may not have face-to-face contact with college-bound student-athletes or their parents off the college campus and may not watch student-athletes compete or visit their high school.” To break it down, the NCAA Quiet Period is a time you can talk to college coaches in-person on their college campus. However, the coach is not allowed to watch athletes compete in-person, visit their school, talk to them at their home—or talk to them anywhere outside of the college campus. Coaches can still text, call, email or direct message coaches during this time.

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: 5

Commitment Spotlight

DB Jaden DeCosta (Nevada)

My family and I take academics along with football very seriously. I am grateful that Nevada has not only just offered me the opportunity to play football for them, but be a part of their family and culture. I love those who love me. It sounds like they plan to have me as a safety but also someone who can fill any role if necessary. I feel like my strengths as a player is my physicality, athleticism, and work ethic. I’m happy to be a part of their program.”

OL Skye Richardson (Air Force)

“I chose to commit to Air Force Academy because my goal has always been to get the best education possible and it cost the least as possible. Air Force offers the opportunity to get a top notch degree while still playing football on the collegiate level. Athletes at AFA have the same NFL potential as any other school, but AFA offers successful careers even if NFL opportunities don’t pan out. I’ve been on many campuses, and AFA is spectacular. Going to AFA will never be if I’m successful after college, but will be when I’m successful after college.”

LB Dallas Daley (Air Force0

“After taking all my official visits I knew I wanted to join an academy school and it was really between Air Force and West Point. I took my time making the decision and ultimately chose AFA because it better aligned with the opportunities I was looking for. Being able to see my family as much as possible over the next 5 years was important to me and Coach Calhoun made that an emphasis during my recruitment. I also feel like the coaching staff truly believes in me and knows I am going to bring an attitude and toughnesses with me that they want on this team. I’m coming to Air Force to win championships first and foremost! There’s a stigma in the football world about academy schools and I feel an obligation to help change that. We all gotta get jobs after school and few are gonna set you up better than the Air Force. The NFL’s doors are wide open to the academy schools now and that’s obviously all of our dreams going into this, so I’m on a mission to bring the top recruits from the NW with me for years to come! Air Force Football has a DAWG coming in!!!!”
