2014 Mountain West recruiting rankings: Boise State earns top ranking

New, 1 comment

Boise State took the top spot by winning the recruiting battle among the Mountain West schools in 2014.

The 2014 recruiting classes are in the books and now it is time to award the champion -- or at least paper champion -- for signing day. Boise State ended up with the best class when compiling all of the recruiting services. They won out with total points and also average points per player.

San Diego State was right there with the Broncos up until the end but a four-star recruit and an extra three-star put Boise State over the edge. This was a two-team race between Boise State and San Diego State.

The next group was Fresno Sate, San Jose State and Colorado State. The Spartans made a late push to sign a pretty good class, and just waited on a few prospects on signing day to get in their fax. Signing just 19 compared to most other schools in the conference shows the quality of class that head coach Ron Caragher was able to put together, and he kept it local with 18 of the 19 from California.

On the lower end we have UNLV who signed a small class, but the 11 listed below is not accurate as it was a class sign of 16 for the Rebels. Despite that small amount, UNLV will still have their full compliment of 85 scholarships, and head coach Bobby Hauck felt that the class is full of quality players.

No one will really know what school had the best class until a few years down the road, but here are the composite rankings anyways.
