Here's the latest in recruiting around the Big 12:

BAYLOR
Total commits: 9
ESPN 300 commits: 6
The latest: The Bears nabbed one of the state of Texas' better defensive backs this weekend when Missouri City Ridge Point three-star CB Jordan Tolbert announced his pledge on Friday. Tolbert, who reopened his recruitment after an early commitment to Houston, held offers from Texas, Oklahoma and several other big-time programs. He and top-rated BU pledge John Humphrey Jr. are working to get S P.J. Locke on board next.

IOWA STATE
Total commits: 1
ESPN 300 commits: 0
The latest: One name to keep an eye on that's firmly on the Cyclones' radar is three-star Chicago Marist WR Flynn Nagel. In addition to ISU, he holds offers from several Big Ten schools including Illinois, Indiana and Purdue. Bobby McMillen, ISU's lone commitment so far, is working hard to get Nagle to join him in Ames.

KANSAS
Total commits: 1
ESPN 300 commits: 0
The latest: The Jayhawks have landed three transfer quarterbacks since Charlie Weis took over. Could they get in the mix for another this spring? Redshirt freshman Trent Hosick is looking for his next school after electing to transfer from Missouri. No guarantee KU would go after him now, but he did have an offer from the program out of high school. Hosick does plan to take an official visit to BYU.

KANSAS STATE
Total commits: 1
ESPN 300 commits: 0
The latest: Kansas State recently extended an offer to RB Alec Murphy of Nixa, Mo., but it faces some stiff competition to keep him close to home. Michigan also offered, and Murphy is interested in Mississippi State and Iowa. Still, expect KSU to get a visit from Murphy in the near future.

OKLAHOMA
Total commits: 4
ESPN 300 commits: 3
The latest: OU is back up to four commitments in the 2015 class with the addition of K/P Austin Seibert. High school kicker experts (yes, that's a thing) say the Belleville (Ill.) West senior-to-be is the nation's best placekicker and just as good a punter. Seibert had eight other offers, and it's a good get for the Sooners. He can help in whatever role needed when he gets on campus.

OKLAHOMA STATE
Total commits: 5
ESPN 300 commits: 3
The latest: Oklahoma State made another big, big addition from the Lone Star State on Sunday when CB Jaylon Lane announced he'll be a Cowboy. The No. 73 player in the ESPN 300 from Nacogdoches, Texas, was absolutely coveted this spring, with more than 35 schools extending offers, but Lane thinks he has a chance to become the next Justin Gilbert when he arrives in Stillwater.

TCU
Total commits: 10
ESPN 300 commits: 0
The latest: As the quarterback dominos start falling around the country, watch Quinten Dormady blow up. The Boerne, Texas, standout's recruitment is picking up steam after he missed his junior year with an injury, and he does hold a TCU offer. Oklahoma State entered the mix Sunday, and Texas could end up offering as well.

TEXAS
Total commits: 9
ESPN 300 commits: 5
The latest: No new commitments, but it was still a relatively big weekend for Texas recruiting. With the UIL state track meet just across the street from the Longhorns' football office, Charlie Strong's staff got a chance to host some big-time talent, including ESPN 300 recruits Kendall Sheffield, Kris Boyd and Ryan Newsome. Manvel 2016 safety Deontay Anderson, who already holds more than 15 offers, got one more from the Horns this weekend. He'd received one from the Mack Brown staff a year ago as well.

TEXAS TECH
Total commits: 7
ESPN 300 commits: 2
The latest: The Red Raiders landed a new pledge this weekend from Missouri City (Texas) Elkins ATH Jonathan Giles. TTU beat out Missouri and six other schools for Giles, who plays QB in high school and probably translates as a receiver in the Red Raiders' scheme. Even better news, Tech RB commit Corey Dauphine won a state title in the 200-meter dash Saturday with a blazing time of 20.76 seconds.

WEST VIRGINIA
Total commits: 11
ESPN 300 commits: 2
The latest: The Mountaineers joined the long, long list of schools pursuing ESPN 300 TE Will Gragg when they extended an offer on Sunday. The Pine Bluff, Ark., four-star talent is the top-rated prospect in his home state. You name 'em, they've offered Gragg. It won't be easy for WVU to get Gragg on campus, not when he has so many other suitors and Arkansas desperate to lock him up, but Gragg is definitely worth all the offers.
