Big 12 recruiting scorecard: Baylor QB commit taking visits

Here's the latest from the recruiting trail in the Big 12:

BAYLOR

Total commits: 6

ESPN 300 commits: 3

The latest: Longtime Baylor QB commit Kellen Mond says he's still solid with the Bears, but the ESPN 300 talent continues to take unofficial visits elsewhere. Mond attended Ohio State's spring game and called Auburn a "perfect fit" after visiting the Tigers in April. He and his IMG teammates visited Florida, Florida State and Alabama as well, and Texas A&M could made Mond a priority if Tate Martell decommits.

IOWA STATE

Total commits: 10

ESPN 300 commits: 0

The latest: Iowa State's latest commitments came from in-state MLB Jake Hummel and Kansas DE Angel Dominguez, who turned down offers from Oklahoma State and Kansas. Hummel hails from Des Moines and had family ties to the Cyclones: His father was a wrestler at Iowa State in the 1980s.

KANSAS

Total commits: 4

ESPN 300 commits: 0

The latest: Kansas is in good shape for a quality receiver from the DFW area, Dallas Bishop Dunne's Reggie Roberson. He holds more than a dozen offers but was impressed by what he saw during a recent unofficial visit to Lawrence. Roberson is close with Kansas RB commit Dominic Williams, so that should help KU's chances.

KANSAS STATE

Total commits: 2

ESPN 300 commits: 0

The latest: The Wildcats will use this spring evaluation period to get ahead of the game on junior college evaluations. K-State was the first to offer CB Tareke Lewis from Riverside C.C. in California, and he's interested. Lewis is a 6-foot-1 corner from Florida who has three years to play two, but his recruitment is just beginning.

OKLAHOMA

Total commits: 12

ESPN 300 commits: 9

The latest: The Sooners' class looks even better in the new ESPN 300 rankings, and they added to it Friday with a commitment from ESPN 300 RB Trey Sermon. That's quite a coup, since he's the nation's No. 9 rated running back recruit and hails from Georgia. OU did lose a commitment that same day from four-star WR Cedarian Lamb, but this group is still ranked No. 3 in our class rankings.

OKLAHOMA STATE

Total commits: 8

ESPN 300 commits: 1

The latest: Oklahoma State added a late find for their 2016 team in graduate transfer CB Lenzy Pipkins from Louisiana Monroe. Pipkins started 19 games over the last two seasons for the Warhawks and will try to match the success Indiana transfer CB Michael Hunter just had in Stillwater. The Pokes also added a pledge from 2017 CB Tyron Merchant out of College Station, Texas.

TCU

Total commits: 3

ESPN 300 commits: 3

The latest: The Horned Frogs made the top 10 for new ESPN 300 DB Grant Delpit. The No. 4 ranked safety recruit from Houston Lamar cut his list down to TCU, Oklahoma, Baylor, Miami, USC, Notre Dame, Florida, LSU, Clemson and Alabama. Delpit has been a big riser this spring and, based on that list, could end up leaving the state of Texas for his college ball.

TEXAS

Total commits: 6

ESPN 300 commits: 4

The latest: Texas QB commit Sam Ehlinger went out to the East Coast this weekend to prove he should make the Elite 11. Ehlinger, who recently moved into the ESPN 300, locked up his Elite 11 invite at The Opening Regional in New Jersey Sunday. The Longhorns recently added a new commit to protect him, too: four-star OL Xavier Newman, ESPN's No. 2 rated center prospect.

TEXAS TECH

Total commits: 3

ESPN 300 commits: 1

The latest: The Red Raiders already have a great start to their 2017 offensive line class led by ESPN 300 OG Jack Anderson, and they're in a good spot now with OT Jaxson Kirkland. The 6-foot-7, 300-pound lineman recently visited Lubbock and has Tech high on his list. Oregon and Michigan are among the many programs starting to take an interest in Kirkland, so getting him on campus early was a smart move for Tech.

WEST VIRGINIA

Total commits: 2

ESPN 300 commits: 0

The latest: ESPN 300 Georgia ATH Shawn Smith had West Virginia on his list before making a commitment to South Carolina last week, and he'll keep considering the Mountaineers. Smith is planning to take an official visit to WVU this season along with Miami and Mississippi State, so that battle isn't quite over yet.
