Colorado State's 2012 Class Ranks Ninth In Mountain West

The 2012 recruiting class for the Colorado St. Rams was not expected to be one of the best of the Mountain West, but it also was not expected to finish at the bottom of the league either.

However, having three straight 3-9 seasons and bringing in a new coaching staff late in the recruiting process usually does not improve a class ranking -- unless that new coach is Urban Meyer.

Below is the average rankings from the major recruiting services for the Mountain West.
