Biggest offer: Texas Tech still has a couple of spots available to improve its defense. The Red Raiders are sewing up some spots with junior college players, and they’re hoping to land 6-5, 275-pound defensive end Brandon Thorpe (Highland, Kan./Highland Community College). The Texas Tech offer is Thorpe’s only Big 12 offer, as he also has offers from South Florida and UAB. Texas Tech most recently scored commitments from defensive tackle Keland McElrath (Clarksdale, Miss./Coahoma Community College) and offensive tackle Drew Sarvary (Tallahassee, Fla./Tyler Junior College).

Biggest answer: After another successful trip to Stanford, ESPN 300 defensive end Solomon Thomas (Coppell, Texas/Coppell) is getting questions about his interest in the Big 12. Thomas confirmed on Sunday that he still has high interest in both Texas and Oklahoma. The 6-3, 256-pound defensive end said he will be at the Red River Rivalry game on Saturday. Texas and Oklahoma are still in the mix, but Stanford is high on his list, as are schools such as Arkansas, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and UCLA.
