Without spring practice to get us through the offseason lulls in Pac-12 country, the recruiting world carries the burden as it launches into a major stretch before the regular-season excitement begins to ramp up.
Summer camps are taking place around the country, and elite high schoolers are turning heads despite not actually playing in real football games.
If you follow recruiting, odds are you know which kids your favorite team is targeting. You know who looks like a good fit, which 5-stars are a long shot but have you crossing your fingers anyway and, finally, who would be the dream recruit for the program you follow.
Some schools desperately need speed on offense, others yearn for beef in the middle and some just want those with limitless potential. What makes an ideal recruit? Is it a talented kid spurning a nearby school and choosing your team? Is it simply the best recruit at the biggest position of need?
The only requirement here is that there must be at least mild interest on both sides, no matter how long the odds may be otherwise. For example, Jadeveon Clowney would have been Utah's (or any school's) dream recruit several years ago, but there was zero interest on his end.
Here is every Pac-12 team's dream 2015 recruit.
Note: You could list the same three or four players for most of the teams on this list. For the sake of mixing it up, we're listing a different player for every school despite the fact that two or three programs may have the same "dream" recruit. Remember, these are NOT predictions of where each recruit will go, but rather the dream scenario for each school.
