Texas hooks the Big 12's best class
Originally Published: February 3, 2010By Scouts Inc. | ESPN.com
Here's a team-by-team breakdown of the recruiting classes in the Big 12. Jackson Jeffcoat (Plano, Texas/Plano West) was a huge in-state land and the nation's best linebacker Jordan Hicks (West Chester, Ohio/Lakota West) was a huge and rare late out-of-state pick-up. In addition to Jeffcoat and Hicks, the class features some strong front seven prospects headlined by four-star DTs Taylor Bible (Denton, Texas/Guyer) and Ashton Dorsey (Tyler, Texas/John Tyler), the No. 2 and 4 ranked DTs in the country. Defensive coordinator Will Muschamp also gained some great secondary depth with a pair of top 10 cornerback prospects. Offensively, the Longhorns added two of the nation's top three receivers in Mike Davis (Dallas/Skyline) and Darius White (Fort Worth, Texas/Dunbar). Corey Nelson (Dallas/Skyline), a four-star LB, to join a class that already featured four-star ATH Tony Jefferson (Chula Vista, Calif./Eastlake). The Sooners lose QB Sam Bradford and TE Jermaine Gresham, but add talented dual-threat quarterback Blake Bell (Wichita, Kan./Bishop Carroll) and the No. 3 TE Austin Haywood (Moore, Okla./Southmoore). In addition to Jefferson, the Sooners also raided California for four-star, multi-purpose RB Brennan Clay (San Diego/Scripps Ranch) and four-star wideout Kenny Stills (Carlsbad, Calif./La Costa Canyon).
