New coaches shift Pac-12 recruiting landscape

6/4/2015

CARSON, Calif. -- It's not exactly a secret that the Pac-12 as a whole hasn't been a dominant recruiting conference over the past several years.

There's Arizona, there's UCLA ... and that's it.

Going back to the Class of 2008, only the Wildcats and Bruins have finished among the top 10 recruiting classes in the country. Arizona has finished in the top 10 the last five years, as well as in 2008. UCLA had the No. 1 class in 2008 and 2012, and also finished in the top 10 in 2014. And from 2008 to 2014, no other Pac-12 school found a way to corral an elite recruiting class.

That could be changing, though.
