Some Big 12 Signing Day predictions
By David Ubben
My colleague Bruce Feldman of ESPN.com tries to wrap his hands around the most difficult predictions when he makes eventual recruiting choices for the top-10 remaining recruits heading into National Signing Day.
Trying to pick these players and where they will end up is like trying to catch rainwater in a spoon. But Feldman does an admirable job in his list, which is part of our Insider content today and can be read by following this link.
Feldman has defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat of Plano, Texas going to Texas over Oklahoma, Arizona State and Houston.
And he projects defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa of Portland, Oregon will head to Nebraska over Oregon State and UCLA.
Texas wasn't quite as fortunate in recruiting outside linebacker Jordan Hicks of West Chester, Ohio. Feldman predicts he'll end up at Ohio State over the Longhorns and Florida.
The entire list of 10 players can be seen by following this link . It's a good read and Feldman spells out some plausible reasons behind his predictions.
