Recruiting Update: Air Force
Leading up to signing day (Feb. 4), we will go through each team's class, and post any news that may occur. There have been stories throughout the year, but since these are high school kids and they change their mind, I felt waiting a week before to run down the lists was a good plan.

First up is Air Force, and the Falcons are a different type of program in comparison to others in the Mountain West and the nation.  Air Force has weight restrictions which can limit certain players, and that is why the Falcons offensive and defensive line are smaller then most.

Also, the academic load is quite tough, and the school does not make many exceptions to get athletes in the school. Finally, once a player is done, he must fulfill his duties.

Most athletes at Air Force are undersized, but some do have the skill sets near other great players and to the players are smart.  Most of these players will see significant time once they are in their third year, because that is how the Academy usually does it.

There are exceptions where freshmen and sophomores get significant time, but this year there was an exception in quarterback Tim Jefferson

Here is the current list of the 23 verbal commits for Air Force with links player info and highlight videos.  Any player with a number next to their name is their national ranking.  According to Rivals, all of their recruits are two stars or below...no real surprise there.
