National signing day: Boise State poised for top class, San Jose State not far behind

Signing day is fast approaching, and Boise State is looking to land the best class within the Mountain West.

Recruiting is the base that sets up a college football program for success, and even just one bad year can set a school back years by having to play catchup.

With signing day fast approaching on Feb. 4, the classes are taking shape. 247Sports does a good job of taking in the composite rankings between all of the major scouting services and sticks them in one chart to get a comprehensive looks. This should be the most accurate list out there.

One thing to note about these rankings are that it goes by total points, so if a team has a lot more recruits they will be ranked higher compared to a team that has few verbal commits. This is organized by points, but there is also the average rating in there as well to determine who has a better class when comparing the average athlete rating.

It should come as no surprise that Boise State has the best class and the only four-star commit within the Mountain West. It is hard to really judge Colorado State and UNLV since each have less than 10 commits. It is surprising to see San Jose State near the top, and part of that is due to having 19 committed recruits, but going by their average they have the third best class. Maybe things are slowly coming together for the Spartans.

This list will likely drastically change leading up to signing day, and even through Feb. 4. We will check back with this list at least one more time before signing day.
