Big 12 Recruiting Overview: 2019

The bye week affords a good opportunity to take stock of where the conference is with talent acquisition. The short story is pretty much the same place where it has been: Texas and Oklahoma are clearly out front while other schools are doing the best they can to find hidden gems, scheme fits, and players who improve their baseline talent even if they require more time to develop. That's the right approach, especially for programs rebuilding or outside of the conferences main recruiting footprint of Texas.

A perusal of Big 12 recruiting

If you're unaware of how Texas has positioned itself for the class of 2018, this is your first day at IT. Welcome! But what's going on in the rest of the conference? From following general recruiting my suspicion has been the rest of the conference is recruiting better top to bottom than in years past, but after writing this it seems status quo overall. Some schools are up, some down, but overall it seems to even out versus previous cycles.
