The Pac-12 is a conference that does not get the respect it deserves. With programs such as USC, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Washington, it is a league that has good depth.
While the SEC annually dominates the recruiting rankings, several elite 2014 recruits could choose to play in the Pac-12. The top recruit committed to a Pac-12 school right now is 5-star quarterback Keller Chryst, but Stanford's headliner may not own that title for long.
A receiver from Louisiana could spurn LSU to head west, while an athlete from a Los Angeles-area powerhouse could choose to stay home. Also, a prospect from Texas may be attracted to the California sunshine.
