What a week it has been for Pac-12 recruiting. With the exception of UCLA and USC, every program received a verbal commitment this week. Many received multiple commits, making for a strong week on the recruiting trail in Pac-12 country.
While the Arizona baseball team is in Omaha battling it out in the College World Series, the football program was hitting the recruiting trail hard this week. They ended up with commits from TE Calvin Allen, LB DeAndre Miller, LB Phillip Wright and ATH Thomas Woodson.
Allens received four offers total before making his decision yesterday. He is a 3-star from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Miller is also a 3-star, and Woodson a 2-star.
Arizona State is currently ranked second to last in the Pac-12, according to Rivals 2013 Team Rankings.
Never underestimate the power of a good kicking recruit. For Cal, they picked up K Matt Anderson out of Danville, California.
While Cal was the only school to extend an offer, Anderson considered Stanford, UCLA and USC as well.
For their second season as a member of the Pac-12, the Buffs are not doing too shabby in terms of recruiting.
This week alone, they picked up four commits: LB George Frazier, OL John Lisella, WR Bryce Bobo and WR Elijah Dunston. None have stars according to Rivals, but all four will add depth to the 2013 Colorado recruiting class.
The Ducks only have five commits as of now, but the 2013 class is shaping up nicely. With a 5-star according to Rivals already on board, adding TE John Mundt (a 3-star) to the offense is a good pick. He's 6'5" and 235 pounds, which will add some bulk to the Oregon offense.
Oregon State fans, rejoice! The first Beavers commit to the 2012 recruiting class is DB Terin Solomon.
Solomon currently stands alone at 6'2" and 185 pounds. He's coming to Oregon State from Murrieta, California.
It's not much, but the Beavers can finally say they have a commit. Hopefully this means they will finally join the rankings for 2013 (as they are currently left off of the Rivals 2013 Team Rankings list).
Nice commit for Stanford this week with WR Francis Owusu. He's a 4-star from Westlake Village, California.
The Stanford class is still small, but they've added only 4-stars to this point, so not too much to complain about there.
Third on Rivals 2013 Team Rankings list, the Bruins are doing pretty well to date. Eight commits currently on the books.
Nothing new to report otherwise for the week, but that shouldn't be a concern for UCLA fans.
The Trojans did not receive any commits this week, but the program is still leading the Pac-12 with the most commits from the ESPN 150. They are also No. 1 according to Rivals 2013 Team Rankings, with nine total commits.
This week, Utah grabbed a commit from DE Myron Aiava. He is the first addition to this class that does not have any stars, according to Rivals. He is a good-sized DE though, standing at 6'5" and 270 pounds. Utah is currently ranked second to last, only above Oregon State.
The most impressive week for recruiting belongs to none other than Washington State, which got six commitments in total.
Most noteworthy on this long list is Bruggman. The 6'1", 190-pound senior from Phoenix, Arizona is a pro-style quarterback who ranks 13th in his position according to Rivals. He had offers from 13 schools, which included Michigan State, Arizona and Arizona State.
Daniels is a 4-star out of Oakley, California. Both Daniels and Van Winkle are nice additions to this growing 2013 class.
