The Big 12 is a forgotten conference on the recruiting trail, as only Texas and Oklahoma have the ability to consistently recruit on a national level. However, the league has seen programs such as Baylor, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State all ascend up the recruiting pecking order.
Many memorable moments have taken place through the years in Big 12 recruiting, and the 2014 recruiting trail will create additional ones. Predicting what will happen is tough, but looking deep into the recruiting crystal ball, the future can be seen.
A great running back who is expected to sign with an SEC team will consider a Big 12 powerhouse longer than many expect. Another powerhouse program will see its recruiting take a dip in 2014, while a receiver will choose not to be the headliner of an upstart Big 12 program.
