Mountain West Recruiting Roundup 6-5-23. June Team Recruiting Rankings.

It’s another week of the MWC Recruiting Roundup.

The offers have decreased this week with the spring evaluation period having wrapped up. With that being said, 10 of 12 teams still handed out at least one offer, with over 35 in total. Look for more offers to trickle out after coaches get a look at players in person during camps. Official visits also started for the month of June and Hawaii hosted lots of visits. Colorado State and Utah State each had a known visitor as well. And the commitments kept rolling in with two new ones. UNLV kept their hot streak going for one of them, and San Diego State secured a big commitment, and Air Force rounded things out with third conference commit of the week.

Both the Aztecs and Rebels are good choices for this week’s cover photo, but the nod goes to SDSU this week.

Class of 2024 Cover Photo Total:

  • San Diego State: 4
  • UNLV: 3
  • Air Force: 2
  • Nevada: 2
  • Colorado State: 1
  • Fresno State: 1

Recruiting Calendar:

For most of June (until the 27th), we are in a quiet period. This is a time where recruits can take official visits to campuses.

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: 14

June Team Recruiting Rankings:

Obviously, recruiting rankings mean nothing right now and really won’t truly start to take shape until around July after junior days, the spring evaluation period, and camps can take place. However, we will continue to post monthly team rankings regardless. Here are the May rankings for comparison.

Commitment Spotlight:

QB Sage Dawson (Air Force)

“I chose Air Force because I felt like it was the best thing for me! If i have a chance to go play pro, great, but if not, Air Force sets me up for life after football. Air Force showed me the most attention during the recruiting process which made me feel at home! They did this by calling about every week, sending mail to the house, coming to my school in Kentucky to visit me!”

RB Anthony McMillian Jr (San Diego State)

“I committed because of the coaching staff and the environment. All the coaches get to know you on a more personal level more than just the football aspect. The environment there is perfect, everyone is always happy, smiling, and even the people who don’t play sports are just happy to be there in general.”

WR Damien McDaniel (UNLV)

“I committed to UNLV because of the coaching staff, the opportunities it will provide for me, and plus, it’s Vegas.”
