It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.
It is full steam ahead in the class of 2023. Mountain West teams stay busy with their recruiting, handing out offers. Plus, visits are still happening on campus for the spring. Also, the Spring Evaluation period has started, which means coaches will be going to high schools to watch practices and talk to high school coaches. This week, there were three new commitments, plus the announcement of a commit from last week. The Wolf Pack had all three of this week’s announcements and they are doing great work securing their class early. Plus, they had a slew of visitors for their spring game. They take the cover photo this week.

The NCAA Evaluation Period is a specific time of year when college coaches are allowed to watch an athlete compete in person or visit their school. However, coaches are not allowed to communicate with that athlete (or parents) off the college campus. Coaches can sit in the stands during a recruit’s practice or game, as well as visit the recruit’s school. This gives college coaches a chance to talk to the recruit’s coach, teachers, or guidance counselor to get a better understanding of the student-athlete’s character. After the visit, the coach may call or email the recruit and let them know how their experience was at the school or game.
The NCAA Evaluation Period is just that: a time set aside for evaluation. While coaches can’t talk to athletes off the college campus, they can still call, email, text, and direct message recruits.
