July is nearly over, and as we head into August, it's time to update the Big 12 recruiting scorecard. You can see each full class by clicking on the team name, but you'll need ESPN Insider access to see the full coverage.

Here's where the Big 12 stands for the respective 2013 classes, which can't sign letters of intent until February.

Remember, this card is in pencil. Players are free to switch commitments until they sign a letter of intent with a school.

1. Texas Longhorns

Total commits: 14
ESPN 150 commits: 7
Key commits: QB Tyrone Swoopes, C Darius James, OT Jake Raulerson, OT Kent Perkins
Class update: Texas lost a commit since our latest update, but are still holding strong in the national rankings, safely inside the top 10. Of the Longhorns' 14 commits, 12 are four stars or higher.

2. Oklahoma Sooners

Total commits: 12
ESPN 150 commits: 2
Key commits: RB Keith Ford, DE D.J. Ward, QB Cody Thomas
Class update: Thomas fell out of the ESPN 150 since our latest update, but the Sooners added OT Matt Beyer to reach 13 commits. They're currently ranked No. 14 in ESPN RecruitingNation's national class rankings. The biggest recent news for the Sooners came Tuesday night, however, when the class' best commit, Florida native and RB Greg Bryant, decommitted. Bryant was the nation's No. 2 running back and No. 30 overall recruit.

3. Baylor Bears

Total commits: 19
ESPNU 150 commits: 1
Key commits: WR Robbie Rhodes, QB Chris Johnson, OLB Raaquan Davis, RB Johnny Jefferson
Class update: Baylor added six commits since our last update, and are the only other Big 12 team in the top 25, at No. 23. DT Byron Bonds, ATH Wesley Harris, S Alfred Pullom, OG Darius Moore and juco transfers OT Simo Kulmaviita and TE-Y Gus Penning all committed to Briles' Bears in the last month. Nice haul.

4. Oklahoma State Cowboys

Total commits: 15
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: WR Fred Ross Jr., WR Marcell Ateman, DT Vincent Taylor, CB Darius Curry

Curry committed back on July 9, and WR Ra'Shaad Samples, OG Jaxon Salinas, DE Ogbonnia Okoronkwo and ATH Jerel Morrow all pledged to join the Cowboys next fall since our last update.

5. TCU Horned Frogs

Key commits: OLB Paul Whitmill, OLB Sammy Douglas, OG Patrick Morris
Class update: TCU added four commits since our last update. OT Eason Fromayan, CB Ranthony Texada, OT Joseph Noteboom and RB Trevorris Johnson all committed in the past month. Only one of TCU's commits (Whitmill) is a four-star prospect, but 10 carry three stars.
