Weekend recruiting wrap: Pac-12

It was another extremely impressive weekend for Pac-12 programs on the field, as the conference went 9-2 overall, which included a guaranteed loss as Oregon State traveled to Utah. On the recruiting trail, things were just as impressive, as blowout wins by Oregon and UCLA had recruits buzzing about the resiliency of the Bruins on the road and the overpowering display on both sides of the ball by the Ducks. Elsewhere, Utah added a big commitment and Cal hosted a huge recruiting weekend.
Biggest commitment: Utah had plenty of talent on hand for its overtime loss to Oregon State, and while the result was disappointing for a team looking to make a statement early in the season, the atmosphere in the stadium helped land a big verbal commitment from junior college wide receiver Brandon Snell (Miami/Garden City CC). Snell originally signed with Louisville as part of the 2012 class, but enrolled at Garden City Community College in Kansas and will now take his speed and elusiveness to Utah, as the Utes continue to stockpile talent that will allow it to compete in the Pac-12.
