1. TCU

One could technically include this class in the Big East rankings but they top the Mountain West rankings for the last time. Quarterback Tyler Matthews has had a terrific summer and is a sharp signal-caller and the rest of the class is full of speed athletes like defensive back Daje Johnson.

2. Boise State

There seems to be more talent in this class, at this point, than other years thanks to the rise in the Broncos' profile. The staff has done well in talent-rich Florida, Texas and California and have a great quarterback incoming in Nick Patti.

3. San Diego State

The departure of head coach Brady Hoke last year means a new recruiting pitch for the Aztecs but they've managed to bring in some quality players. Quarterback Matt Morin is a strong-armed pick up for the program and they have several other underrated local talents halfway until Signing Day.

4. Air Force

It's always hard to judge service academy recruiting classes but at the moment, Air Force is winning the recruiting version of the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Running back Johnathan Johnson has BCS offers and the rest of the class is full of solid players.

5. Colorado State, New Mexico, UNLV, Wyoming

These four school do not have any commitments for the class of 2012.

TCU top of the Mountain West

As the movie Cool Runnings would say, with TCU "I see pride! I see power! I see a bad-ass mother who don't take no crap off of nobody!"

The future is bright for the Horned Frogs!

Go Frogs!
