The Big 12 is a conference known for its lack of defense and high-scoring games. Once ruled by Texas and Oklahoma, new powers such as Oklahoma State, Baylor and West Virginia can score on just about anyone.
Recruiting remains a big deal throughout the Midlands, as getting talented players to execute schemes is imperative for a Big 12 program's success. Several schools have commitments from prospects who should not only be good, but should also become stars during their time in the Big 12.
Baylor's offense will get a new toy to play with, while Texas has a commitment from an underrated stud running back. Plus, Iowa State is crossing its fingers that a big receiver stays committed, as he seems destined for stardom with the Cyclones.
