How Boise State's Mountain West competition fared on Signing Day

Boise State being ranked as the No. 69 class by Scout.com is rather meaningless until we see how these future stars perform in actual games in actual blue-and-orange jerseys. That said, there is one very meaningful application of recruiting rankings: Favorable comparisons to your most hated rivals.

By that measure, Boise State stacks up exceedingly well. Here is a full table of Mountain West recruiting rankings, sorted by composite score and with the Broncos squarely on top (although San Diego State could stand to give us some elbow room).
