Boise State lands top signing day class within Mountain West, UNLV surprises

It was Boise State who took home the top class, but it was close with Colorado State at second.

National signing day is complete, including the late stragglers who signed their letter of intent, and the rankings have finally settled. Boise State was named the recruiting champion from 247Sports composite rankings with 22 three-star rated commits, which was the most and edged out Colorado State by just three points.

The Broncos were able to hold onto the majority of their class despite losing both coordinators. The same could  not be said for Utah State who lost all but a few coaches and they struggled with the ninth class.

Defending conference champion San Diego State had a strong class which was good enough for the fourth-best. San Jose State who was projected as the No. 2 class on the eve of National Letter of Intent day, but they dipped to the middle of the pack with the fifth rated class.

The Lobos had one of their best seasons in years but the momentum did not carry over for the 2016 class -- look for that to change for the 2017 cycle -- to finish seventh.

The big surprise was UNLV finishing with the third best class and what is looking like the best class ever for the Rebels. It is very much looking like hiring former Bishop Gorman coach Tony Sanchez was a great idea.

The Rebels landed a very good dual-threat quarterback in Armani Rogers who wants to be the next Randall Cunningham. In a few years, UNLV might be atop the actual Mountain West football standings.
