Big 12 recruiting storylines: Sept. 12
September, 12, 2013
By William Wilkerson | ESPN Insider
Change is happening in the Big 12. Some is good, and some is questionable. The good, it appears, is taking place in Lubbock, Texas, which will be the center of the college football world on Thursday. The questionable is happening in Austin, Texas, where a former Longhorns defensive coordinator has been summoned in to a second stint. Will it work and appeal to recruits? A look at these topics and more in Big 12 recruiting storylines.
Max Olson/ESPN.com Corey Avery won't be in Lubbock for Thursday's game, but he could make a visit soon.
All eyes on Lubbock
The stage couldn’t be set any more perfectly for Kliff Kingsbury to make his Big 12 debut as the head coach of his alma mater. Not only does Texas Tech host TCU to begin conference play, but it will also do so on Thursday. So you can bet all eyes will be on Lubbock to see what kind of atmosphere the Red Raiders can drum up for their fans, players and recruits who might be in attendance.
