High school football at the Class A, Class B, Class C 8-man and Class C 6-man levels are entering the fourth week of the 2020 season on September 18 and 19.
Class AA opened up action last week. A variety of players committed to Montana State and Montana along with a slew of other hopeful college football prospects continue to have opportunities to prove themselves.
Montana State currently has 12 known verbal commitments for the Class of 2021, including eight from the state of Montana. Throughout the season, Skyline Sports will provide updates on the top prospects in the Treasure State.
“Going into my fifth year at Montana State, there has been some really good years in Montana and there has been some lean years,” MSU head coach Jeff Choate said in early September when asked to evaluate the in-state recruiting class broadly. “This is one of those really good years. There’s more FCS football players in the state this year than in an average year.
“In an average year, you are probably looking at six to 10 at the most for guys who are fulls or partial scholarships. You are going to take some reaches on some guys because of who they are and they usually make you look right because they are going to over achieve.
“This year, there’s as many as 15 guys, 16, 17 maybe. These kids are getting to play some football so they are going to get some senior film that others aren’t. I do believe this is a better year than an average year in Montana.”
