Big 12 bringing in juco help
By Jake Trotter
Wednesday, several teams in the Big 12 added immediate help in the form of junior college signings. Texas Tech led the way with five juco signings, followed by Baylor, Iowa State and West Virginia with four.
All told, five players from the ESPN Junior College 50 signed with Big 12 schools, headlined by Oklahoma State athlete Tyreek Hill (Pearson, Ga./Garden City Community College), the No. 4 overall juco recruit in the country. Hill actually visited Texas last weekend, but ultimately stuck with his commitment to the Cowboys, who plan to use the speedy Hill as a slot receiver.
Other ESPN Junior College 50 Wednesday signings include Baylor guard Jarell Broxton (Gaithersburg, Md./Lackawanna College), Kansas State wideout Andre Davis (Santa Rosa, Calif./Santa Rosa Junior College) and cornerback Danzel McDaniel (Dodge City, Kan./Dodge City Community College) and Oklahoma tight end Isaac Ijalana (Woodland Hills, Calif./Pierce College).
