The 2014 Big 12 Recruiting Scorecard: July

By David Ubben

Recruiting is a year-round game, and it's time to take our monthly look at how the 2014 recruiting classes are progressing. Getting off to a quick start can get things rolling for any program. Here's how I'd rank the classes thus far. Click on each team to see the full class, though you'll need ESPN Insider Insider to see it.

1. Texas

Total commits: 22
ESPN 300 commits: 7
Class notes: WR Armanti Foreman, the nation's No. 14 receiver, is the Longhorns' biggest pickup in the last month. They also grabbed a commitment from his twin brother, RB D'Onta Foreman, the nation's No. 68 player at the position. Safety Jason Hall also joined the class since our last update.

2. Baylor Bears

Total commits: 21
ESPN 300 commits: 2
Class notes: The Bears' class is filling up, so July wasn't the red-hot month that June was. Juco offensive tackle Jarell Broxton and unranked defensive end Josh Malin are the only additions in the past month.

3. Oklahoma

Total commits: 11
ESPN 300 commits: 4
Class notes: The nation's No. 38 outside linebacker, Tay Evans, is the only pickup of the last month for the Sooners, and their top five commits are all offensive skill position players.

4. Texas Tech

Total commits: 17
ESPN 300 commits: 0
Class notes: The nation's No. 147 athlete, Joseph Clark, is Texas Tech's lone pickup of the past month, but all 17 of Tech's commits are nationally ranked at their position. That depth could pay off in years to come.

5. Oklahoma State

Total commits: 15
ESPN 300 commits: 3
Class notes: Oklahoma State added a trio of commits since our last update. The No. 48-ranked offensive guard Lem Galeai is the best of the bunch. Receiver James Washington and ATH Ramon Richards also pledged to the Pokes.

6. Kansas

Total commits: 7
ESPN 300 commits: 2
Class notes: Kansas didn't land any more headline-making commits in the last month, but the nation's No. 47 guard, Apa Visinia, pledged to become a Jayhawk. So did receiver Tyler Patrick from The Woodlands, Texas. Interesting tidbit from this class: Three players are from Kansas. Two are from Texas.

7. West Virginia

Total commits: 8
ESPN 300 commits: 2
Class notes: West Virginia earned commits from a pair of juco transfers since our last update. Offensive tackle Justin Scott and cornerback Jaylon Myers are both heading to Morgantown in 2014.

8. Iowa State

Total commits: 12
ESPN 300 commits: 1
Class notes: Iowa State's picked up four commits since our last update, and only one player in ISU's class is unranked. No. 80 RB and future All-Name Teamer Tommy Mister is the biggest pickup. The nation's No. 66 safety, Reggan Northrup, is headed to Ames alongside WR Jauan Wesley and OT William Windham.

9. Kansas State

Total commits: 13
ESPN 300 commits: 0
Class notes: K-State is the biggest mover in the Big 12 over the last month after a lackluster June on the recruiting trail. Bill Snyder's clearly handing out offers sooner than usual, and K-State picked up five players on Saturday: WR T.L. Ford, ATH Mike Stevens, S Kaleb Prewett, WR Dominique Heath and S Kendall Adams. FB Winston Dimel, the son of OC Dana Dimel, also committed to K-State. Pro-style quarterback Aaron Sharp, a Houston native, plans on making the move to Manhattan.

10. TCU Horned Frogs

Total commits: 8
ESPN 300 commits: 0
Class notes: Really odd stuff here from TCU, which does have the luxury of having all seven high school commits being in the top 100 at their position, but lacks a real elite prospect. Juco offensive guard Frank Kee and safety Nick Orr have joined the Frogs' class in the last month.
