Air Force's 2012 Recruiting Class Ranked No. 5 In Mountain West

The official list of recruits for the Air Force Falcons can not be publicly released until they step on campus this Summer, so sometimes ranking their recruiting class can be difficult. However, the recruiting services do keep track of who has committed to Air Force.

Even with the restrictions that are placed on the type athlete that can go to Air Force, they ended up with the fifth best class in the Mountain West when taking the average from the recruiting services.

Air Force Football Recruiting: Reggie Barnes Joins Falcons In Surprise Move

The general expectation had been that the Air Force Falcons were presumably done putting together their 2012 recruiting class on National Signing Day. But two-star linebacker Reggie Barnes recently announced that he'll be joining Air Force in a relatively surprising development, according to Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette. More from Schwab:

Arizona State’s Rivals.com site pegged the Sun Devils as the favorite a little more than a week ago after his visit to the campus. He could be a fantastic rush linebacker for the Falcons, if he ends up at that position.

Barnes, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker, played high school football in Tampa, Florida. Outside of Air Force, he had offers on the table from Arizona State, Cincinnati, Colorado State, Florida International, Pittsburgh, Presbyterian, Rice, VMI and Wofford.

College Football Recruiting: Air Force Policy Prevents Announcement of Recruit Names

The Air Force Falcons announced on Wednesday that the school will not be releasing the names of recruited student-athletes until they arrive on campus in the summer. NCAA rules prevent Air Force coaches and administrators from discussing new recruits until acceptance of appointments to the United States Air Force Academy.

Falcons head coach Troy Calhoun is hoping to build another rushing offense powerhouse in Colorado, and he's quoted in the school's announcement.

We've had tremendous support from our administration and staff with the recent commitments of our recruiting class. Our coaches work diligently to identify and educate outstanding young men of the challenging standards at the United States Air Force Academy. Our charge and our purpose is clearly conveyed- develop leaders of character for our country- while still playing competitive college football.

For now, Air Force fans will just have to wait for official announcements on the newest additions to the Falcons.
