The gang over at ESPN RISE came up with a unique project where they ranked the top recruits coming out of high school over the last decade.

The Big 12 was liberally represented on all three teams, including offensive and defensive squads. Former Oklahoma standout Adrian Peterson was picked as ESPN RISE's Player of the Decade.

Here's a look at Big 12 players who were selected for the first three teams. The team is dominated by selections from Texas and Oklahoma -- the two programs that have dominated the conference during the past decade.
