Two unofficial visits highlight something of a quiet weekend in the Pac-12, where there were only four home games in the conference. While Washington and Arizona State came close to making national statements, nothing meant more than Stanford's home win in front of ESPN 300 prospects. At the high school level, Pac-12 quarterback targets shone brightly last week, while a new name could be close to joining several conference recruiting boards.

Biggest commitment: Colorado showed some fight against Oregon, but still obviously doesn't have enough to hang with the class of the Pac-12. But the Buffaloes rebounded nicely on the recruiting trail Sunday evening, scoring a verbal commitment from running back Jomon Dotson (American Canyon, Calif./American Canyon). Dotson -- a highly-recruited and dynamic athlete -- holds offers from Arizona State, Iowa State, Nevada, Northwestern, San Jose State and Yale, among others. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound back is the kind of offensive weapon that Colorado could look to get on the field early in his career. Dotson will take his official visit to Colorado in December.

Biggest offer: Stanford made noise on Sunday night when the coaches extended an offer to defensive end Uriah Leiataua (Compton, Calif./Dominguez). It's a huge offer for Leiataua, who adds it to offers from Colorado, Washington State, Wisconsin, and others. Leiataua has already taken an official visit to Wisconsin and has been looking hard at Washington State, but this offer from Stanford could vault the Cardinal right into the mix. Leiataua is a 6-foot-3, 232-pound defensive end who would likely fit well into the Stanford front seven. It should also be noted that Stanford found some success with the last prospect they reeled in from Compton Centennial -- cornerback Richard Sherman. It wouldn't be surprising to see offers begin piling up for Leiataua now that Stanford has entered the picture.
