Mountain West Conference Recuiting 2010 in the IE

OK... so you have a look at the Pac-10. Now let's go into the Mountain West Conference and see the breakdown.

One other item we added. Players in yellow are prospects that have given a verbal to a BCS conference school.

The big winner. No question. Utah! They offered a total of 132 players - 42 in California - and got verbals from four players. They only player that they didn't get a commit from is Keith Smith of Charter Oak HS (and since he verballed to San Jose St. you can assume that Utah dropped the offer). They lost some players to the Pac-10, but they got what they wanted. Clearly the USC of the Mountain West Conference.

The big loser. Easily it's Colorado St. Not only did they lose players to the Pac-10, but they lost some players to their conference rivals. Even if they get a verbal from Dancy at Mt. SAC, they clearly didn't do as good a job as they can. 2011 becomes a pivotal year.

The school with the biggest unknown factor. San Diego State. They offered a mind numbing 95 players in the state of California and - as of right now - have 28 verbals. So, you can easily say that they are at the limit for their class. And they have verbals from unknown players like Beavers of Banning and Quinley of Granite Hills. The headliner is Muema of Charter Oak. We'll see what happens.
