The Big 12's Last Three

Out of the last 50 commitments in D-1 college football, only three of them are to Big 12 teams. When looking around the conference, it's a surprising stat. Besides for Texas (23), Texas Tech (20), and Oklahoma (18), teams still have plenty of openings.

With Texas as usual strong out of the recruiting gate, they still lead the team rankings when it comes to recruiting.

Their closest competition in the Big 12 is Oklahoma. The Sooners are currently ranked No.6 in the country with 18 commitments.

The likeliness that Texas gets beat out by another Big 12 conference school in the team rankings is slim to none.

One team that has impressed the team's efforts when it comes to recruiting is Texas Tech. Tommy Tuberville and the Red Raiders are curently sitting No. 11 in the rankings.

The last three Big 12 commitments:

1.) QB.) Johnny Manziel (Tivy HS)- Texas A&M
Manizel has been the talk of Texas so far in the 2010 season. The senior has thrown for 1,432 yards, running for 611 yards and scoring 25 touchdowns in only four games. Originally an Oregon commitment, Manizel decommitted this week for a chance to play closer to home.

2.) DT.) Jon Lewis (Springtown HS)- Texas Tech
Lewis plays defensive and and defensive tackle in high school, but looks like he will be making the move to the interior on the next level. He finished last year with 79 tackles and five sacks. He chose Tech over an offer from Alabama, Arizona, Baylor, Michigan, and Oklahoma State.

3.) DE.) Brandon Mickens (Clear Springs HS)- Kansas State
Mickens is 6-foot-4 with 4.6 speed. The senior is tearing up 5A Region III District 24 right now, with 36 tackles, three and a half sacks, and three pass breakups. Only a two-star non-ranked defensive end, Mickens is quickly gaining the attention from all over the country.
