We're only a few weeks away from signing day. It's time to update the Big 12 recruiting scorecard.

You'll need ESPN Insider to view the full class.

1. Texas Longhorns

Total commits: 13
ESPN 150 commits: 6
Key commits: QB Tyrone Swoopes, C Darius James, DT A'Shawn Robinson, OT Kent Perkins

Class update: No big moves for the Longhorns, who has already had four decommitments this recruiting season. Tight end Durham Smythe is the latest, though juco tight end Geoff Swaim officially signed with the Longhorns.

2. Oklahoma Sooners

Total commits: 20
ESPN 150 commits: 2 (Seven from ESPN 300)
Key commits: RB Keith Ford, DE D.J. Ward, QB Cody Thomas
Class update: Oklahoma has racked up six commitments since our last update. Juco offensive tackle Josiah St. John is the biggest piece, but receiver Dannon Cavil flipped from Cal, too. The Sooners also added DTs Kerrick Huggins and Charles Walker and signed another DT in juco star Quincy Russell.

3. Oklahoma State Cowboys

Total commits: 21
ESPNU 150 commits: 0 (Four in ESPN 300)
Key commits: WR Fred Ross Jr., WR Ra'Shaad Samples, DE Sam Wren, WR Marcell Ateman
Class update: Oklahoma State has passed Baylor and officially signed Wren, who will enroll early.

4. Baylor Bears

Total commits: 22
ESPNU 150 commits: 1 (two from ESPN 300)
Key commits: WR Robbie Rhodes, QB Chris Johnson, OLB Raaquan Davis, TE Gus Penning
Class update: Johnson, the nation's No. 5 dual-threat QB has officially signed, as has Penning. Juco defensive tackle Terrell Brooks is the only addition since our last update.

5. West Virginia Mountaineers

Total commits: 23
ESPNU 150 commits: 0 (One from ESPN 300)
Key commits: LB Hodari Christian, ILB Darrien Howard, S Malik Greaves, ILB Al-Rasheed Benton
Class update: Juco linebacker D'Vante Henry is the biggest addition since our last update, but juco safety Terrell Pinson signed, and juco center Stone Underwood is the latest commit and a surefire All-Name Team candidate.

6. Kansas Jayhawks

Total commits: 25
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: DT Marquel Combs, WR Ishmael Hyman, WR Rodriguez Coleman, ILB Colton Goeas
Class update: Kansas is loading up on juco transfers, including the top juco prospect in the country, Combs. We won't run down all 12 commits KU has added since our last update, but KU is now the Big 12's largest class, and 17 of the 25 commits are juco transfers.

7. TCU Horned Frogs

Total commits: 19
ESPNU 150 commits: 0 (One in ESPN 300)
Key commits: RB Kyle Hicks, OLB Paul Whitmill, OLB Sammy Douglas,
Class update: Athlete Cameron Echols-Luper is headed to Fort Worth instead of College Station, where he'd previously pledged. Quarterback Zach Allen and California juco center prospect Lloyd Tunstill fills out the latest addition to the Frogs' class.

8. Iowa State Cyclones

Total commits: 24
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: OT Shawn Curtis, QB-PP Joel Lanning, CB D.A. Williams, RB Tyler Brown
Class notes: The Cyclones signed tight end Emmanuel Bibbs and running back Aaron Wimberly, both juco prospects. Athlete Alton Meeks is also officially in the fold. Iowa State's no longer the biggest class in the Big 12.

9. Kansas State Wildcats

Total commits: 19
ESPNU 150 commits: 0 (One from ESPN 300)
Key commits: DE Jamone Boyd, CB Nate Jackson, QB Jake Waters, ILB Tanner Wood
Class update: Kansas State reeled in ESPN 300 member Boyd since our last update, the class' new top commit. LB Nick Ramirez and Waters also committed, and the juco player of the year is expected to compete for the starting quarterback job. OLB De'Vondre Campbell was another big pickup from the juco ranks.

10. Texas Tech Red Raiders

Total commits: 11
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: QB-PP Davis Webb, WR Dylan Cantrell, CB Maurice Chandler
Class update: Texas Tech's class is in flux and took a dive after losing Tommy Tuberville and bringing in Kliff Kingsbury. That's natural with a coaching change. The class' one-time top commit, Devin Lauderdale, is back on the market, but the Red Raiders kept their other three top commits. Kingsbury added juco running back Tyler Middleton and ATH Dee Paul. Just one of Tech's 2013 commits has more than three stars.
