Spring football is over, and the wait for summer workouts has begun. That means it is time for the rankings lists to start dropping from the media outlets across the country, and one of the most entertaining ones of the year came out on Wednesday.

247Sports dropped their quarterback rankings for the Big 12 in 2024, and to say that the league’s newcomers fared well would be an understatement.

Not only does Shedeur Sanders come in as the top-ranked quarterback in the league, but Arizona’s Noah Fifita is ranked second and Utah signal-caller Cam Rising is at No. 3.


Sanders grabs the headline as he’s been in the news often lately, whether it’s for his new song, his comments about former teammates, or his chance of being the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft; Shedeur has followed in his father’s footsteps of being must-see TV.

That’s not to say that Sanders isn’t deserving of the top spot, because he certainly is. But the same argument could be made for Fifita and Rising as well.

Here’s how the rest of the list breaks down, courtesy of 247Sports’ Carter Bahns.
