Big 12 recruiting class grades
Kansas, Baylor, West Virginia, Iowa State earn high marks for 2013
If this fall's recruiting class grades turn out to be an accurate indication of future power rankings, then little is going to change in the re-formed Big 12. Bill Self's Kansas Jayhawks remain kings of the conference, and their elite 2013 recruiting class should put even more distance between themselves and the field.
As a conference, the Big 12 has struggled to equal the number of ESPN 100 recruits most of its major conference counterparts have landed. Six of the 10 teams in the league scored top-100 players this fall, but only Kansas, Baylor and Iowa State signed multiple ESPN 100 prospects. And the Jayhawks were the only Big 12 team to lock up a top-25 recruit.
With the early signing period having ended last Wednesday, it's a good time to take stock of how all the Big 12 teams have fared so far in 2013 recruiting. Think of it like midterms, with the spring signing period representing final exams.
We're giving the Big 12 an overall recruiting grade of C-plus, and below are team-by-team grades for all of the conference's 2013 recruiting classes after the early signing period. Make sure to also check out our updated class rankings to see how the Big 12's top classes stack up against the nation's best.
