Big 12 Recruiting

Class of 2018: Big 12 football targets (update)

Big 12 football

Around 70% of the prospects with FBS offers signed during the “Early Signing Period.” Why did I put quotation marks around early signing period? If the numbers are an indicator of the future for this “Early Signing Period” then it should be called National Signing Days. What we saw in late December was and should be the real NSD if most prospects are signing with their schools during that period. The other 30 or so percent can be grouped in the “Late Signing Day” or whatever you’d like to call it. So, what about this other 30%? Well, that is where this list comes in play. All ten Big 12 schools are in on some key prospects late and I am sure everyone is wondering who is favored to get the next great football player wearing their school colors on Saturdays. Here is a list of every Big 12 teams remaining targets who are seriously considering their school. This list will not only provide you who your favorite school may get but it will also give you an opportunity to see who your rival is in position for. So, with the help of 247 Sports and some alcoholic beverages, here is the sacred list for all you recruiting junkies.

Here is our latest list of targets, as of Wednesday, January 24th. The team order is based on the best to worst recruiting rankings in the Big 12 conference, courtesy of 247Sports.
