It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

It may be the Quiet Period but there is nothing quiet about this week. Offers, visits, and commitments all occurred at a high rate. As far as commitments, it was a HUGE weekend for Mountain West teams. There were an estimated 25 verbal commits from MWC schools, which is the biggest of the 2023 cycle and perhaps the biggest in all of the years we have been covering recruiting. A number of teams deserve to be on the banner this week. Boise State and Hawaii each had four new commits and Colorado State seems to have gained five, although many have not yet revealed themselves. However, Air Force had nine new commits and although they secure more players in a class than anyone, nine new commits is impressive no matter what. The Falcons take a week on the banner.

Class of 2023 Cover Photo Total:

  • Nevada: 4
  • Air Force: 3
  • Colorado State: 3
  • San Diego State: 3
  • Boise State: 2
  • Hawaii: 1
  • San Jose State: 1
  • Wyoming: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

As of June 1st, we are in a quiet period. This lasts for most of the month, until June 27th.

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: 22

Visit Recap

Commitment Spotlight

DL Charlie Gleason (Air Force)

“Great overall program. Very competitive schooling, football, the coaches preach an incredible message. And the way it sets you up for life after football.”

DE Kade Steadman (Air Force)

“Air Force felt like home as soon as I stepped on campus. The coaches were amazing and you could tell how much they cared about coaching. The program is dominant and is known to not give up. The d line coaches are two guys I see myself playing and care so much about the game and you as a person.”

K/P Bryce Olson (Air Force)

“I chose Air Force because there is a lifetime of benefits. You are not just committing to 4 years of football, you are committing to a great education and a guaranteed job. Air Force is also a great football program and is not too far from where I live so it is just a perfect fit for me.”

DL Carson Hall (Air Force)

“The first thing that caught my attention was the excellent opportunity for my future. If I choose to continue to serve the opportunities are endless. When I visited the academy, it really felt like home. The atmosphere, camaraderie, facilities, and coaching staff were amazing. I am also excited to have the opportunity to serve my country. As soon as I stepped foot on campus, I knew the Air Force Academy was the right fit for me.”

DB Franklyn Johnson Jr (Boise State)

“The main reason I committed to Boise was the atmosphere and the culture of the program!! I knew right away that was where I wanted to be, and the coaches make sure to build a relationship with and get to know you before anything, you can tell it's bigger than football!”

DB TJ Crandall (Colorado State)

“I chose Colorado State because #1 the staff was incredible. During my visit I got to know all of the coaches that will be involved in my development and they amazed me! I’m excited to learn under Coach Patton and Coach Banks because I feel they can bring my abilities to the next level. Also of course Coach Norvell was great. Me and my family got to have a 1on1 conversation with him and it really helped me understand what he values in a program and in my opinion the things he said are what’s gonna make Colorado State the best team in the Mountain West”

DL Ha’aheo Dela Cruz (Hawaii)

“I chose Hawai’I because of the culture and family that Coach Chang and his staff are building there. Even though I’m from Hawaii the excitement that I have for this program and being here is unbelievable, they treat people like family no matter what race or background you have which is what ultimately led to my decision. It’s just a blessing to be able to have this opportunity to play at home in front of my family and friends, and also represent my home state.”

DB Elijah Palmer (Hawaii)

“I chose Hawaii because of what I see this program becoming. The passion that not only the coaches but the players have with each other is rare. The respect that they have for each other and the community. Also, the community is starting to back up the team and the island is coming together. It’s something that I couldn’t say no too. And being able to also commit with my brothers and able to have my former coach, Coach Chris Brown, being here as well. It was a big part of my decision.”

LB Jamih Otis (Hawaii)

“Choosing Hawaii was based off the love and passion from the players and coaches, as I went on my visit I clicked with the coaches very fast and noticed we had the same goal and that’s just winning as a team and development as a player and brotherhood and along with that I have a coach with close relation Chris brown as he’s helped me grow since a freshman so that's a big thing knowing I will be in good hands and meeting the players was the icing on the cake talking to them on insights of the braddahhood it was just a no brainer and I could tell this was going to be my home for the next four years.”
