It’s another week of the Mountain West Recruiting Roundup.
Recruiting is heating up in the conference. Every week, there are new offers, visitors, and commitments occurring. This week was no exception.
This week, offers were still handed out, at least some teams hosted visitors, and quite a few new verbal commitments made their pledges to Mountain West teams.
There were nine new commits this week, spread out among four teams. Also, the Falcons lost two commits. Nevada had one and Utah State had two, while Boise State and Wyoming each had three. As it has been for the past few weeks, two of these teams could qualify for the cover photo, but this week goes to the Broncos.
Class of 2024 Cover Photo Total:
- San Diego State: 7
- UNLV: 6
- Air Force: 5
- Boise State: 4
- Fresno State: 4
- Nevada: 3
- Colorado State: 2
- San Jose State: 2
- Utah State: 2
- Wyoming: 2
- Hawaii: 1
From September 1st until the last week of November, we are in an evaluation period. During this time, official visits can happen on campus and coaches can watch recruits play in person during their high school seasons.
RECRUITs: The 2023-2024 FBS Recruiting Calendar has just been released! Make sure to keep a copy of this calendar handy to stay informed about school visits and when coaches will be on the road.#Recruiting101 pic.twitter.com/bEMvb3hR8s— Coach J.R. Sandlin (@JR_Sandlin) July 27, 2023
The NCAA Contact Period is exactly what it sounds like—all communication between athletes and coaches is fair game. Coaches can email, text, call, direct message and generally contact athletes and their parents through any NCAA-approved method. In-person contact can occur on the college campus, as well as at tournaments, at the recruit’s school and home. In other words, the communication floodgates are open, so take advantage of this opportunity to get unlimited access to talk to coaches.
Air Force Commitment Tracker:
Since the Air Force Academy regularly has by far the most commits among Mountain West recruiting classes, it’s fun to track them over the course of the year.
Number of Falcon verbal commits: 98
Transfer K Jarrett Reeser (Boise State)
“There are a few reasons why I went with Boise. The people, coaches, opportunity, community of Boise, and the brotherhood. Hard not to want to be in Boise!”
QB Anthony Wolter (Nevada)
“I committed to Nevada really because how much I felt at home. Nevada was my first offer dating back from the end of my freshman year. I took a visit out there on a gameday visit, and it was really special. Then they had a coaching change, and stuff like that, but then I was re-offered by the new coaches to play over there. I took an unofficial visit. Saw the campus and saw the facilities, and it just felt like home to me. Plus I wouldn’t be super far from my family.”
OL Adam Hawkes (Utah State)
“I committed to Utah State because they are a program that believes in me. The coaching staff is very helpful and persistent in helping me grow, and I love ‘em Aggies.”
JUCO DB Mason Edwards (Utah State)
“I committed to the school because it was the bond I had with the coaches was unbelievable and they believed in me. I like the defensive scheme, and I feel like I can do great things at Utah State. My family also loved it, which drew me closer to choosing what I can call home.”
