Although the Big 12 is not as strong as it once was, the conference still remains among the best in college football. Traditionally dominated by Texas and Oklahoma, several programs have made recent coaching changes which have given them a renewed sense of confidence.
The Red River Rivalry is still the top tussle in the league, as the Longhorns and Sooners fight on the field and on the recruiting trail for prospects. However, other schools have begun making up ground and have closed the gap in the Big 12.
A big receiver prospect is surprisingly committed to a Big 12 program not known for its recruiting prowess. Another program has two commitments on this list who could be key players in its resurgence, while quarterback and defensive end have committed to Texas. But Oklahoma also is well represented on this list.
