Some top prospects headed to Big 12 schools rose in the new ESPN 300, and others fell. While one athlete saw one of the biggest jumps in recent history, a few watched their stocks plummet.
Fortunately for many Big 12 commits, the stocks rose and the expectations are high. Here are five athletes who are committed to a school in the conference or are a high target.

Mere weeks remain until signing day. RecruitingNation's team of scouts took one last look at the Class of 2014. Updated ESPN 300
One look at Steven Parker II (Jenks, Okla./Jenks) during the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, and it’s clear to see that whatever school lands him will get a star in the making. Parker, who rose an impressive 61 spots in the ESPN 300 from 200 to 139, was extremely active in the bowl game and his play epitomized what he’s done all year as a high school senior.
Parker, who has Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Auburn and several other schools high on his list, is one of those players who could excel at multiple skill positions. Although listed as a safety, Parker can play wide receiver and cornerback effectively. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound athlete also can help out on special teams.
