Looks like a darn good signing class overall. I'm glad we could get Preston Curtis and Justin Hervey.

I hope this is the kind of class that will keep the Aggie ball rolling, it feels good right now.
To get a couple away for the "U" that has made this little class a little more special as well. Maybe the PAC 12 doesn't carry as much weight as the Utes would like to think?

Go Aggies Go Go Go!

Wow a lot of Florida recruits for USU this year. Looks like a good looking class Aggies!

Rivals shows Utah State with the 13th best recruiting class in the WAC2.0. There are only 13 teams in the MWC(WAC2.0) Utah is in a similar position currently of last in the conference. Funny though is that dead last in the Pac 12 would still be good enough for #1 in the MWC. Just goes to show what kind of athletes you get being one of the best in the MWC vs the athletes any Pac 12 school gets

Good luck this year aggies

never fails chris, always trying to rain on a parade.

We are happy to get Tukuafu and Curtis as Aggies, too bad utes could not close the deal.

The utes are horrible in the pac10.2 and would have no chance in the MWC either.

pac10 athletes > pac.2 athletes

nice try though...

btw, how many "average stars" was your sugar bowl team vs your last 3 years?


Chris B

You're right Pac 10 athletes > .2 athletes

And .2 athletes are greater than WAC athletes.

Utah(deal last in pac 12) 2.6 average stars
USU average stars 2.0

Sofa, Alabama's average stars have been very high the last several years. Probably a coincidence they were one of the highest stars and one of best teams

And how many stars was your Sugar Bowl team? Oh wait, you've never been there.

It's no surprise that with Utah's recruiting class being dead last in the Pac 12, and yet ahead of EVERY wac team that the Pac 12 went 14-1 against the WAC(including byu) this year.

Just goes to show that even a "small fish in a big pond" like Utah is still BIGGER than a "big fish in s small pond) like WAC usu.

"Just goes to show that even a "small fish in a big pond" like Utah is still BIGGER than a "big fish in s small pond) like WAC usu".

The small fish in the big pond will be eaten, while the big fish in the small pond will dominate.

Last year was a good year to be an Aggie and so will next year.

Utah's PAC12 recruiting class lost to USU's 13th ranked MWC recruiting in 2012 and squeaked by with an onside kick in 2013.

Also, facing USC, USU's horrible recruits went down swinging while the U embarrassed themselves.

I guess what one does with the recruiting class matters as much as that class? Speaking of class, what has the U done lately?

I think it's awesome that USU got Tukuafu, Tauteoli and Hervey who were all offered by utah. Good to see kids are not just great athletes, but smart as well.

RSL, who does the "big fish" dominate against?

Wyoming and new Mexico?


You must be so proud!

That rivals.com ranking is completely outdated. Look it over before you go blabbing. Utah State signed 11 players that received a 3* ranking in one of the four main recruiting services (rivals, scout, espn, 247). Two of them are even rivals.com 3* players and the website doesn't even link them to Utah State. I don't know why they aren't on the ball, I think they mainly focus on the Big schools and ranking those guys and all other rankings outside the top 50 (BYU and Utah included) just fall into whatever random place they put them. This recruiting class is solid and Matt Wells and the rest of the coaching staff deserves some good praise. Also, 5 of Utah State's commits also had offers from Utah. Feels good.

Chris B,
You consistently forget that USU is a mid level university, Utah is in a power conference, a school with more resources, fan base and exposure. USU's target is to be competitive in the MWC, what is Utah's goal? Which school is likely to reach their goal?..I rest my case. Just as I don't expect SUU or Weber State to better USU, Utah should easily surpass USU, but they just can't seem to pull it off. If the Aggies continue to compete for MWC championship and Utah, as expected, resides near the celler of the PAC 12, you can expect more and better athletes committing to Logan. Mark it Down.

@Chrissy B

Coming from a Trojan fan, I was more worried about the MWC school, than one who rides the coat tails of others in the PAC 10.2!

Of the two schools last year, I thought the MWC school was more athletic, faster, and played with more heart than Utah.....

By the way, last time I checked, the WAC no longer exists in college football!!

Fight on!!!

"USU's target is to be competitive in the MWC, what is Utah's goal"

Shouldn't usu, Utah's, and every other programs goal to be as good as they can? To have undefeated seasons?

But you're saying aggies goal is to just be better than New Mexico and Wyoming?

Way to reach for the stars!

USU finished in the top 2 of the mwc and had a recruiting class ranked dead last in the mwc. Utah didn't go bowling and had a recruiting class dead last in the Pac 12.

And yet dead last in the Pac 12 is still 2.6 average stars and would be #1 in the MWC.

Apparently recruits would rather play for ANY team in the Pac 12 than a team near the top of the WAC.

Shows what recruits think of being at the top of the WAC, doesn't it?

West Valley, UT

I think Chris forgot about the USC game that both USU and the Utes played. That game proved that USU plays a lot better against big teams out of the state of Utah, which is where it really counts.

Southern, UT

It really doesn't matter who has the better recruiting class. We all know it's gonna be about 90 years until USU can beat both Utah and BYU. The only player USU really has is Keeton and he has only played one full year. Not to impressive if you ask me.
