23 DE Javonte Magee B Call it the RGIII bounce but Baylor definitely improved upon what they've been doing on the recruiting trail, landing the talented Magee and several athletes that will improve the overall team speed.

- Commitment list
21 QB Grant Rohach C This is a pretty tall group coming in that is heavy on the lines and at wide out but the marquee guy is Rohach. There are a few underrated players here but it's not what you'd call a special class.

- Commitment list
16 DB Greg Allen F Well, Charlie Weis, you're in Kansas and not South Bend or Gainesville. This year was a recruiting class well below average and might not add much at all unless you count transfer quarterbacks Dayne Crist and Jake Heaps.

- Commitment list
26 WR Marquez Clark C+ Not many of these guys, outside of the Jucos, are expected to play much early on but a decent effort this year for the Wildcats.

- Commitment list
24 WR Durron Neal A- They addressed the big need at wide receiver and brought in several other nice pieces on offense. This wasn't a class that drew on Texas for talent but was really all over the map but still pulled in a top 10 class.

22 QB Wes Lunt B The Cowboys aren't quite at the point where they're competing for elite talent on the recruiting trail yet but they're doing a great job of grabbing kids that will fit in their system on both sides of the ball.
- Team page
- Commitment list
23 QB Tyler Matthews B This could have been in 'A' territory had they managed to keep a few kids but it's still a very good effort for the first class they're able to sell playing in the Big 12.

- Commitment list
28 RB Johnathan Gray A+ Once again, the Longhorns swept the elite in-state talent and landed the top RB in the country. They also grabbed some elite and underrated defenders to complete one of the better classes under Mack Brown.

- Commitment list
26 WR Dominique Wheeler B This is actually a pretty underrated class and the amount of Jucos is certainly interesting but when you consider needs, understandable.

"...This wasn't a class that drew on Texas for talent but was really all over the map..."


I noticed how OU seems to be recruiting more n
ation-wide now instead of putting so much emphasis on Texas players.  I see this year's class includes 4 from Florida, 3 from California, 2 from Ohio, and one each from many other states.   I'm not sure how well this will work out, but I'm confident the coaches are fully able to recognize signable talent.
