Big 12 Football Weekly Recruiting Roundup: Oklahoma Beaten out by Surprise Team
It's been a quiet week for Big 12 recruiting. However, I'd say a more correct statement is that it has been a quiet month.
One team did surpass all of the others by getting the most commits this week, and that team might just surprise you.
Three-star LB Jordan Mastrogiovanni has officially committed to Oklahoma. He joins a recruiting class with 10 others, seven of which are ESPN 4-stars. Mastrogiovanni is 6'2", 225 pounds and a promising commit for the Sooners.
One of the few programs with a commit this week, you might think Oklahoma won. That is not the case, however.
Who beat them?
The Cyclones beat all of the Big 12 this week.
Iowa State was the only program to score two commitments: TE Emmanuel Bibbs and DB Kamari Syrie. Neither player has any stars, but they are a welcome sight to a Cyclone class that had zero recruits at the end of May.
Bibbs is a junior college transfer from Arizona Western College, while Syrie is from L.D. Bell high School in Hurst, Texas.
The Bears received no new commitments this week, but no need to worry if you're a Baylor fan.
The class already has 12 recruits, five of which are ESPN 4-stars. No visits are currently on the books, but with the June Baylor has been having, it probably won't stay that way for long.
There isn't much new for the Jayhawks this week. They currently have five recruits, none in the ESPN Top 150.
Nothing to be concerned about for head coach Charlie Weis though, as the former Notre Dame coach has been in this position before.
Can he have the same results at Kansas? We'll find out.
One of the few to get a commit this week was the Wildcats with LB Tanner Wood. He is an ESPN 3-star recruit out of Conway Springs, Kan. Wood helped his high school to the Class 3A championship game in 2011.
The Cowboys may not have had any recruits this week, but they are on the move. Oklahoma State boasts nine commits—three who are ESPN 4-stars. They are path to shape a strong class for 2013.
The Horned Frogs were quiet this week on the recruiting trail. The biggest commit still remains OLB Paul Whitmill.
It will be interesting to see how recruiting pans out for TCU now that they are members of the Big 12.
No new commits to report on for the Longhorns, but their current state is a pretty good one to be in.
Hopefully the Texas coach can get a commit from Ricky Seals-Jones, a 5-star wide receiver out of Sealy, Texas.
The Red Raiders joined the long list of Big 12 programs with no new commits this week.
They currently have seven though, two of which are ESPN 4-stars.
Unfortunately for Texas Tech, they are competing for a lot of the same recruits as Texas. It will be interesting to see how it pans out.
West Virginia picked up a 4-star in ILB Elijah Wellman this week. The 6'2", 230-pound senior comes from Spring Valley High School in Huntington, W. Va..
The Mountaineers have really picked up on the recruiting trail since May with seven commits. Three are ESPN 4-stars.
