The Pac-12 is not doing well in 2014 recruiting, as only one of its schools has a Top 25 class, according to 247Sports. With programs such as USC, Oregon and Stanford having the ability to recruit nationally, the lack of great classes in the conference is surprising.
Recruits are choosing to go elsewhere, as the SEC is the leading league in college football. Notre Dame, Ohio State, Texas, Miami, Clemson, Michigan and Florida State are several other programs that have proved to be huge foes for Pac-12 schools on the recruiting trail.
More recruits will spurn Pac-12 coaches, as Arizona State will not land a great cornerback it is recruiting. USC will lose a pair of local prospects to non-Pac-12 schools, and Oregon will not sign a speedy running back it has its hopes set on.
