NCAA Football: Air Force at Colorado State Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

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. Especially with the Spring Evaluation period up and running, which means coaches will be going to high schools to watch practices and talk to high school coaches. This week, there were no new commitments, which is a bit of a surprise, but offers were plentiful. There were many teams deserving this week, but taking a look, Colorado State appears to have the most offers and will spend the week on the cover photo.

Class of 2023 Cover Photo Total:

  • Nevada: 4
  • Air Force: 2
  • Boise State: 2
  • Colorado State: 2
  • San Diego State: 1
  • San Jose State: 1
  • Wyoming: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

As of April 15th, we are in the spring evaluation period. dead period. This lasts until the end of May.

Next College Student Athlete says:

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.

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

Visit Recap

DB Leroy Bryant (Nevada)

“The visit was good! Some highlights were how they treated my family and made them feel comfortable. The apartment complex that players are able to stay in are very nice! We got to go over the coverages & some things they look for in a player and what I can expect from them as coaches. Next I’m going to talk with my family and try to figure things out.”
