Less that two months removed from signing day, the Big 12 schools have already begun to shape their 2015 recruiting classes. Below is a snapshot of where every team stands for 2015 at the moment. Also, remember to check out the Recruiting Nation team, whom you can follow via their On the Trail blog:

BAYLOR

4-star: QB/WR Chad President (Temple, Texas/Temple)

3-star: ATH Blake Lynch (Troup, Texas/Troup); WR Devontre Stricklin (Waco, Texas/Midway)

Other: ATH Louis Brown (Burton, Texas/Burton); OT Maurice Porter (Missouri City, Texas/Navarro College)

The skinny: Baylor’s domination securing top-flight WRs has continued with the 2015 class.

IOWA STATE

4-star: None

3-star: None

Other: OLB Bobby McMillen (Naperville, Ill./Naperville)

The skinny: The Cyclones secured their first commitment in McMillen just days after signing day.

KANSAS

4-star: None

3-star: None

Other: None

The skinny: Coach Charlie Weis is still looking for his first pledge for the Class of 2015.

KANSAS STATE

4-star: None

3-star: QB Alex Delton (Hays, Kan./Hays)

Other: None

The skinny: The Wildcats have only one commitment, but it was a critical get. K-State whiffed on QBs in the 2014 class, making the position a top priority for 2015. The Wildcats can rest easy with the speedy Delton on board.

OKLAHOMA

4-star: OG Joshua Wariboko (Oklahoma City/Casady); DT Marquise Overton (Jenks, Okla./Jenks); TE Bobby Evans (Allen, Texas/Allen); DT Du'Vonta Lampkin (Houston/Cypress Falls)

3-star: S Jamile Johnson Jr. (Dallas/South Oak Cliff)

Other: None

The skinny: Oklahoma’s recruiting momentum following the Sugar Bowl win over Alabama has carried over into 2015, as Overton committed the day after. The Sooners will have to fight to keep Wariboko, the other gem of the class so far. He has offers from almost every power program in the country, including Florida State, LSU and Texas.

OKLAHOMA STATE

4-star: None

3-star: None

Other: OG Johnny Wilson (Midland, Texas/Midland Christian); QB John Kolar (Norman, Okla./Norman North)

The skinny: The Cowboys are off to a sleepy start in 2015, but they did get a much-needed pledge from a QB with only two on scholarship on the current roster. Oklahoma State might add another QB in this class.

TCU

4-star: None

3-star: DE Breylin Mitchell (Round Rock, Texas/Round Rock); WR Jarrison Stewart (Mesquite, Texas/Horn); OLB Alec Dunham (Coldspring, Texas/ Coldspring-Oakhurst)

Other: ATH Tony James (Arlington, Texas/Bowie); DT Joseph Broadnax (Dallas/Bryan Adams); ILB Semaj Thomas (Fort Worth, Texas/Southwest); OT Cody Ford (Pineville, La./Pineville)

The skinny: TCU has worked quickly with its 2015 class, picking up seven commitments already. Mitchell was being pursued by OU before pledging to the Horned Frogs.

TEXAS

4-star: OG Patrick Vahe (Euless, Texas/Trinity); RB Jordan Stevenson (Dallas/South Oak Cliff)

3-star: DT Bryce English (DeSoto, Texas/DeSoto); CB Jalen Campbell (Corpus Christi, Texas/Flour Bluff); S Johnny Shaw (Orange Texas/West Orange-Stark); OT Ronnie Major (Huntsville, Texas/Huntsville)

Other: S DeShon Elliott (Heath, Texas/Rockwall-Heath); OT Toby Weathersby (Houston/Westfield); DE Charles Omenihu (Rowlett, Texas/Rowlett)

The skinny: Charlie Strong and his staff have hit the pavement running in Austin, filling out the class with a Big 12-high nine commitments, including three players on the ESPN Junior 300 list.

TEXAS TECH

4-star: QB Jarrett Stidham (Stephenville, Texas/Stephenville)

3-star: None

Other: RB Corey Dauphine (Port Arthur, Texas/Memorial); OG Lio Lafaele (Corona, Calif./Riverside Community College)

The Skinny: Kliff Kingsbury collected Texas Tech’s biggest recruiting victory in years by hauling in Stidham, ranked as the No. 1 dual-threat QB in the class. Stidham had offers from virtually every blue-blood program in the country, and he gives the Red Raiders a foundation piece at a key position.


WEST VIRGINIA

4-star: S Kendrell McFadden (Hollywood, Fla./McArthur); WR Jovon Durante (Miami/Jackson)

3-star: WR Kahlil Lewis (Miramar, Fla./ Miramar); RB William Cameron (Sanford, N.C./Southern Lee); OG Matt Jones (Hubbard, Ohio/Hubbard); Stone Wolfley (Morgantown, W.Va./Morgantown); ATH Jordan Adams (Reisterstown, Md./Franklin)

Other: S Kevin Williams (Pompano Beach, Fla./Blanche Ely); S Sheldrick Redwine (Miami/Killian); ATH Jacquez Adams (Reisterstown, Md./Franklin)

The Skinny: The Mountaineers are off to a blistering start to their 2015 class, with quality and quantity. McFadden and Durante, who had offers from Alabama and Florida State, are both on the ESPN Junior 300 list.
