Instant Impact: Five From the Big 12

Scout takes a look at five mid-year enrollees in the Big 12 who could make an immediate impact...

Malik JeffersonTexas
The No. 1 rated prospect in the Midlands should have a great opportunity to show what he has in spring ball as the Longhorns did graduate some players at the position. Even if beaten out for a starting role he should contribute as an off the edge specialist.

Breiden FehokoTexas Tech
It is known that the Texas Tech defense has struggled mightily and the warrior that is Breiden Fehoko may bring some instant legitimacy to the middle of the Red Raiders defense. He was a Scout five-star for a reason and stood out at every national event he attended.

Jarrett StidhamBaylor
With Bryce Petty gone it would seem that Seth Russell is next in line in Waco, but Stidham will get his shot. He has a big arm, can run and most importantly has the moxy it takes to be a college level quarterback.

Dede WestbrookOklahoma
The Sooners lacked a certain explosiveness at wide receiver, especially after Sterling Shepard went down with an injury. Now they have someone to turn to as Westbrook was one of the top producers in the junior college ranks last season.

Brandon HodgesTexas
The UT offensive line struggled last season in most phases. Hodges has the length to play tackle and the power to play guard, so his ability to make an impact at multiple positions may be one of the reasons why you see him right away.
