Big 12: Evan Boehm

DGB: What SEC-bound Mizzou needed

Important only begins to describe what Dorial Green-Beckham's letter of intent to play football at Missouri means to the program.

It's huge in a literal, on-field sense, and moved Mizzou's class to No. 21 nationally.

It might be even bigger off the field as Mizzou leaves the Big 12 for the SEC. The state isn't known for being one that consistently churns out top-notch talent, but the Springfield, Mo., native lends even more legitimacy to a growing program. Mizzou's experienced historic success over the past six seasons as one of just a handful of programs to win eight games in each of those years.

The Tigers don't have the kind of history many of their new rivals in the SEC have, but DGB's move to Mizzou lends a whole lot of credibility to what has been one of the most productive offenses in the nation during the school's recent rise.

Green-Beckham was easily the best player in Missouri, and could develop into a truly transcendent talent. What do transcendent talents do? Attract even more talent. DGB may become one of Missouri's most valuable recruiters, both symbolically and literally, when top recruits make future visits to Columbia's campus.

DGB came. Why can't future top recruits?

On the field, Green-Beckham offers the Tigers exactly what they needed. The past two seasons, Mizzou's remained productive without a big-play receiver that ranked among the league's most physically gifted.

That changes now.

When the Tigers' offense had gamebreakers like Jeremy Maclin and Danario Alexander, it was at its best.

DGB's arrival could signify a move back to those days.

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound receiver should replace departed tight end Michael Egnew's presence in the red zone, too. DGB has a great ability to catch balls at the highest point, and it's hard to imagine the physically-imposing target not becoming a reliable option there.

Missouri's move to the SEC has spawned plenty of questions about how Mizzou will be able to recruit in Texas. That strategy may have to shift to the south, but any transition is going to be simpler if the Tigers can keep their home state's top prospects home.

DGB is No. 1. Evan Boehm, the nation's No. 2 offensive guard, was the state's No. 2 player and No. 42 on the ESPNU 150.

Both are headed to Mizzou, and will play their college careers in the SEC. Four of Missouri's top six players in its 2012 class are in-state prospects.

That's exactly what Mizzou needed to hear on Wednesday morning.

Future Big 12 talents prep for showcase

PM ET
The Under Armour All-American game is set for Jan. 5 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., and there should be plenty of future Big 12 players on the roster.

Here's a look at how many commits from each school will be playing. The Longhorns have the most in the Big 12, and the most of any team in the nation, too.

See the full list here.

1. Texas - 10

Top talent: Connor Brewer (Scottsdale, Ariz./Chaparral)

Ht.: 6-2 | Wt.: 190 | ESPNU 150: 34 | QB rank: 3 | Stars: 4
Breakdown: Brewer is an accomplished, polished passer for the high school level. He has adequate-to-good height and the frame to really blossom and add bulk. Full eval

2. Oklahoma - 3

Top talent: De'Vante Harris (Mesquie, Texas/Horn)
Ht.: 5-10 | Wt.: 160 | ESPNU 150: NR | CB rank: 14 | Stars: 4
Breakdown: All Harris needs is a bit more size to be considered a top national corner prospect. In terms of footwork, speed and cover corner skill-set, this prospect is an upper-tier category. Full eval

3. Missouri - 1

Evan Boehm (Lee's Summit, Mo./Lee's Summit West)
Ht.: 6-3 | Wt.: 300 | ESPNU 150: 52 | OG rank: 1 | Stars: 4
Breakdown: Boehm is a tough linemen displaying the explosion and playing strength necessary to be effective as both a run and pass blocker. Full eval

3. TCU - 1

Devonte Fields (Arlington, Texas/James Martin)
Ht.: 6-3 | Wt.: 225 | ESPNU 150: 68 | DE rank: 7 | Stars: 4
Breakdown: Fields can play the game and be a productive defender. He is a kid who possesses good size and looks to have a sturdy build and should be able to continue to develop his frame some as he physically matures. Full eval

High school All-Americans headed to Big 12

December, 23, 2011
12/23/11
2:30
PM ET
We've unveiled our high school All-America team this week, and it's time to take a look at the guys who will be headed to Big 12 schools (or at least schools currently in the Big 12).

FIRST TEAM

Johnathan Gray, RB, Aledo (Texas) -- Texas commit
  • The nation's top running back set the national record for career touchdowns (205) in his final high school game, a win over Manvel (Texas) in the Class 4A, Division II state championship. Gray, who scored 70 touchdowns this season and led Aledo to its third straight state title, finished second all time in points scored (1,232) and third in rushing yards (10,908).
Trey Williams, RB, Dekaney (Houston) -- Texas A&M commit
  • Williams was pivotal in Dekaney's run to the Class 5A, Division II state title in the fourth-year school's first playoff appearance. He ran for 3,884 yards and 48 touchdowns on 427 carries, caught two touchdown passes and returned a kickoff for a score.
Evan Boehm, OL, Lee's Summit West (Missouri) -- Missouri commit
  • The nation's top guard earned All-State first team honors and guided Lee's Summit West to the Class 5 state semifinals.

Updated 2012 Big 12 recruiting scorecard

December, 20, 2011
12/20/11
9:00
AM ET
So, the season gets, you know, kind of crazy. It's unrelenting, and recruiting plummets in priority. Thus, we haven't had a recruiting update since before the season.

Time to update.

Signing Day is less than two months away, and here's where each Big 12 team sits as we hit the recruiting home stretch before the big day in February.

All commit totals, rankings and stars via ESPN Recruiting, which updated its national recruiting rankings this week.

1. Texas Longhorns

National ranking: No. 1
Total commits: 25
ESPNU 150 commits: 10
Key commits: RB Johnathan Gray, DT Malcom Brown, WR Cayleb Jones, QB Connor Brewer
Class notes: Four of Texas' top five commits are skill position players, a huge need for the Longhorns. They're one of a handful of schools still chasing one of the nation's top recruits, too, receiver Dorial Green-Beckham. Gray will come to Texas as the Gatorade National Player of the Year. Texas also has two juco transfers coming next year, OT Donald Hawkins and DT Brandon Moore, a rarity for the Longhorns.

2. Texas A&M Aggies

National ranking: No. 8
Total commits: 22
ESPNU 150 commits: 4
Key commits: OLB Jordan Richmond, RB Trey Williams, ATH Bralon Addison, QB Matt Davis
Class notes: Texas A&M's class is being spearheaded by Davis, who's spreading the "Agg Swagg Movement" via social media, and Texas A&M will enter the SEC with one of its best classes in recent history. It's a deep class, too. Eleven of the 22 commits earned four-star status on ESPN.

3. Oklahoma Sooners

National ranking: No. 9
Total commits: 17
ESPNU 150 commits: 5
Key commits: RB Alex Ross, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Durron Neal, OL Ty Darlington
Class notes: The Sooners are after DGB, too, but may have a sudden big need at running back after a handful of transfers over the past few months. ESPNU 150 signee from 2010 Trey Metoyer, a receiver, is expected to be in Norman next year after spending a year at Hargrave Military Academy. He'll offer some nice help, but will Landry Jones be throwing him the ball?

4. Texas Tech Red Raiders

National ranking: No. 17
Total commits: 22
ESPNU 150 commits: 3
Key commits: WR Reginald Davis, WR Dominique Wheeler, OT Michael Starts, QB Clayton Nicholas
Class notes: The Red Raiders added five commits since our last update, but Davis, Wheeler and Starts should all be nice pickups and additions to an offense that lacked a big-play threat this year when Darrin Moore was battling injuries. Tech is also adding five juco transfers, including two more receivers and a pair of pass-rushers.

5. Oklahoma State Cowboys

Total commits: 16
ESPNU 150 commits: 1
Key commits: TE Dominic Ramacher, OLB Jeremiah Tshimanga, QB Wes Lunt
Class notes: Texas swiped CB Kendall Sanders with a late recruiting push, following a few high-profile former OSU commits to go elsewhere. This year's class won't make many headlines, but it'll be interesting to see if the 2011 Big 12 title pays off in the 2013 recruiting class. OSU knows definitively now that it can be better than OU and Texas. Lunt, an Illinois native, is an uber-productive dual-threat. Former blue-chipper Calvin Barnett, a DT from Tulsa, spurned OSU for Arkansas on Signing Day 2010, but he's committed this year via junior college.

6. Baylor Bears

Total commits: 19
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: ATH Corey Coleman, OT Kyle Fuller, CB Terrell Burt, WR Kiante' Griffin
Class notes: Baylor added a handful of recruits just before the season to reach 18 commits, and added just one commit over the course of the season. Baylor's grabbed big-time recruits like Ahmad Dixon and Kendall Wright in the past that have been productive, but there's no big name in this class just yet.

7. Missouri Tigers

Total commits: 15
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: DT Donald Hopkins, QB Maty Mauk, ILB Donavin Newsom
Class notes: Missouri is chasing DGB too, but the story this season has been class attrition for the Tigers. They were in the top 20 but lost ESPNU 150 commit Evan Boehm, who decommitted. The Tigers fell out of the top 25 and fell behind Oklahoma State and Baylor. Running back Jonathan Williams took his four stars to Arkansas and OT Germain Ifedi moved to fellow future SEC member Texas A&M. Mauk, Hopkins and Newsom are the only remaining four-star recruits in the class.

8. Iowa State Cyclones

Total commits: 20
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: OT Daniel Burton WR P.J. Harris, WR Quan West, QB Grant Rohach
Class notes: The Cyclones added 11 commits since our last update. Three of the Cyclones top four commits are offensive skill position players, but Burton is the class' top commit. He committed on Sept. 29. A second QB, Luke Knott, committed way back in April. His older brother, Jake Knott, is a star linebacker for the Cyclones. Paul Rhoads' 10-year contract extension could help on the recruiting trail next year, too, offering parents some security that he'll still be coaching their sons for their whole careers. ISU has no four-star commits, but eight three-stars.

9. Kansas State Wildcats

Total commits: 11
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: WR Vernon Vaughn, DT Travis Britz, RB Jarvis Leverett, QB Tavarius Bender
Class notes: Kansas State added four commits since our preseason update. Seven of the commits are three-stars and just one is committed via junior college. Two commits are unranked.

10. Kansas Jayhawks

Total commits: 8
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: QB Seth Russell, TE Jordan Smith, OG Brian Beckmann
Class notes: ATH Bilal Marshall and DE De'Jon Wilson are no longer committed and new Kansas coach Charlie Weis has his work cut out for him. He says he doesn't want to be under scholarship numbers, but he doesn't want to offer guys just to fill scholarships with bodies. It'll be a tough balance. He's got catching up to do. WR Tre Parmalee and DT Keon Stowers are Weis' first two commits.

The Big 12 recruiting scorecard for 2012

August, 18, 2011
8/18/11
10:00
AM ET
It's mid-August. The season starts in two weeks and signing day is a little more than five months away. We are more than halfway through the recruiting season and here's how the Big 12 classes for 2012 look.

We'll try to offer a monthly scoreboard update between now and signing day next February. There hasn't been a ton of shifting and activity since our last update in July, but here's a look at where we stand now.

All numbers are courtesy of ESPNU Recruiting. You can see them by clicking on each team for more on each class. The teams are ranked below.

Very nice showing for the Big 12 so far, with six of the 10 teams in the league ranked in ESPN's top 25 class rankings, including fish-in-barrel shooters Texas, which tops the national recruiting rankings.

1. Texas Longhorns
National ranking: No. 1
Total commits: 18
ESPNU 150 commits: 9
Key commits: RB Johnathan Gray, DT Malcom Brown, WR Cayleb Jones, QB Connor Brewer
Personnel notes: Seven of the Longhorns' commits are offensive players, nine are on defense and another is designated as an athlete. Four of the top five commits, however, are skill-position players. Texas also has kicker Nick Jordan (No. 8 nationally) committed.

2. Texas A&M Aggies
National ranking: No. 8
Total commits: 21
ESPNU 150 commits: 4
Key commits: OLB Jordan Richmond, RB Trey Williams, ATH Bralon Addison, QB Matt Davis
Personnel notes: The Aggies swiped Addison from Oklahoma State and gave themselves four commits who are designated as athletes. Eight of their other commits are on defense and nine play offense. Davis was recently added to the ESPNU150 as the nation's No. 7 quarterback.

3. Oklahoma Sooners
National ranking: No. 10
Total commits: 12
ESPNU 150 commits: 4
Key commits: RB Alex Ross, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Durron Neal, OL Ty Darlington
Personnel notes: The Sooners are still after Dorial Green-Beckham, the nation's No. 1 receiver and No. 3 overall prospect. Oklahoma's class has just two defensive players and one athlete, Daniel Brooks. The other seven commits play offense. The Sooners swiped Neal from Missouri, where the in-state Tigers were hoping to add him to their 2012 fold. OU missed out on QB Gunner Kiel to former coordinator Kevin Wilson, who convinced Kiel to commit to in-state Indiana.

4. Texas Tech Red Raiders
National ranking: No. 15
Total commits: 17
ESPNU 150 commits: 3
Key commits: WR Reginald Davis, WR Dominique Wheeler, OT Michael Starts, OT Christian Okafor
Personnel notes: Davis and Wheeler could offer a big talent upgrade at the skill positions in the future. Nine commits play offense, two are athletes and six play defense.

5. Missouri Tigers
National ranking: No. 18
Total commits: 15
ESPNU 150 commits: 1
Key commits: OG Evan Boehm, DT Donald Hopkins, QB Maty Mauk, OT Germain Ifedi,
Personnel notes: Hopkins was a top addition for the class, which would get a huge boost with the addition of Green-Beckham. The class includes seven defenders (four linebackers) and five offensive players, with two of the top four commits being offensive linemen. Mauk and Boehm allowed the Tigers to jump into the top 25 class rankings and leapfrog Oklahoma State over the summer.

6. Oklahoma State Cowboys
Total commits: 11
ESPNU 150 commits: 1
Key commits: TE Dominic Ramacher, CB Kendall Sanders, OLB Jeremiah Tshimanga, OT Timothy Hines
Personnel notes: Oklahoma State added four commitments since our last update to a class that features four defenders, four offensive linemen and three offensive skill position players.

7. Baylor Bears
Total commits: 18
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: ATH Corey Coleman, CB Terrell Burt, WR Kiante' Griffin, LB Kendall Ehrlich

8. Iowa State Cyclones
Total commits: 9
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: WR P.J. Harris, WR Quan West, DE Mitchell Meyers, QB Grant Rohach
Personnel notes: The Cyclones added a string of a couple players earlier this month with a handful of commits in just a few days. The class now consists of two receivers, two quarterbacks (including Luke Knott, the younger brother of LB Jake Knott), a running back and four defenders.

9. Kansas State Wildcats
Total commits: 7
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: WR Vernon Vaughn, DT Travis Britz, QB Tay Bender, OG Aderius Epps

AM ET
It's mid-July. The season starts in six weeks and signing day is a little more than six months away. We are now almost halfway through the recruiting season and here's how the Big 12 classes for 2012 look.

We'll try to offer a monthly scoreboard update between now and signing day next February. There's been plenty of shifting and activity since our last update in June.

All numbers are courtesy ESPNU recruiting pages. You can see them by clicking on each team for more on each class. The teams are ranked below.

Very nice showing for the Big 12 so far, with six of the 10 teams in the league ranked in ESPN's top 25 class rankings, including fish-in-barrel shooters Texas, who top the national recruiting rankings.

1. Texas Longhorns
National ranking: No. 1
Total commits: 18
ESPNU 150 commits: 9
Key commits: RB Johnathan Gray, DT Malcom Brown, WR Cayleb Jones, QB Connor Brewer
Personnel notes: Seven of the Longhorns' commits are offensive players, nine are on defense and another is designated as an athlete. Four of the top five commits, however, are skill-position players. Texas also has kicker Nick Jordan (No. 8 nationally) committed.

2. Texas A&M Aggies
National ranking: No. 4
Total commits: 20
ESPNU 150 commits: 3
Key commits: OLB Jordan Richmond, RB Trey Williams, ATH Bralon Addison, ATH Matt Davis
Personnel notes: The Aggies swiped Addison from Oklahoma State and gave themselves four commits that are designated as athletes. Eight of their other commits are on defense, and nine play offense. Quarterback Trevor Knight recently switched to Oklahoma, but Davis is expected to play QB for the Aggies.

3. Oklahoma Sooners
National ranking: No. 12
Total commits: 11
ESPNU 150 commits: 4
Key commits: RB Alex Ross, WR Sterling Shepard, WR Durron Neal, OL Ty Darlington
Personnel notes: The Sooners recently added Knight, a quarterback, but would still love to add receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, the nation's No. 1 receiver and No. 3 overall prospect. Oklahoma's class has just two defensive players and one athlete, Daniel Brooks. The other eight commits play offense. The Sooners swiped Neal from Missouri, where the in-state Tigers were hoping to add him to their 2012 fold.

4. Texas Tech Red Raiders
National ranking: No. 14
Total commits: 16
ESPNU 150 commits: 3
Key commits: WR Reginald Davis, WR Dominique Wheeler, OT Michael Starts, OT Christian Okafor
Personnel notes: Wheeler is the class's top commit, but David and Starts are the other two ESPNU 150 prospects. Nine commits play offense, two are athletes and five play defense.

5. Missouri Tigers
National ranking: No. 19
Total commits: 12
ESPNU 150 commits: 1
Key commits: OG Evan Boehm, QB Maty Mauk, OT Germain Ifedi, ILB Donavin Newsom
Personnel notes: The Tigers beat out Oklahoma for in-state prospect Boehm, and would like to do the same with Green-Beckham. But for now, the class includes seven defenders (four linebackers) and five offensive players, with two of the top three commits being offensive linemen. Mauk (No. 14 QB nationally) was a recent addition. Mauk and Boehm allowed the Tigers to jump into the most recent top 25 class rankings and leapfrog Oklahoma State.

6. Oklahoma State Cowboys
National ranking: No. 24
Total commits: 7
ESPNU 150 commits: 1
Key commits: TE Dominic Ramacher, CB Kendall Sanders, OLB Jeremiah Tshimanga, OT Timothy Hines
Personnel notes: OSU has had a rash of decommitments, including two from ESPNU 150 listers Dalton Santos and Bralon Addison. The current class is headlined by Ramacher, one of four offensive players in the class. Two of the three defenders are cornerbacks. OSU also added a quarterback since our last update, 6-foot-4 Wes Lunt of Rochester (Ill.).

7. Baylor Bears
Total commits: 12
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: ATH Corey Coleman, CB Terrell Burt, WR Kiante' Griffin, ATH Terrence Singleton
Personnel notes: The Bears have three athletes in the group, five offensive commits and four defenders, including three defensive backs. Quarterback Jared Johnson was a high-profile recent pickup.

8. Iowa State Cyclones
Total commits: 6
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: WR Quan West, DE Mitchell Meyers, QB Grant Rohach, RB Barkley Hill
Personnel notes: The Cyclones have a second QB in Luke Knott, the younger brother of star linebacker Jake Knott, and four of the six commits are skill position players. The Cyclones also have a pair of defenders, with no offensive linemen currently committed.

9. Kansas State Wildcats
Total commits: 5
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: WR Vernon Vaughn, DT Travis Britz, QB Tay Bender, ILB Will Davis
Personnel notes: The Wildcats have three defensive commits, and both offensive commits are skill position players.

10. Kansas Jayhawks
Total commits: 3
ESPNU 150 commits: 0
Key commits: CB Daniel Gray, OG Brian Beckmann, ATH Derek Keaton
Personnel notes: Turner Gill set the bar high with his first full class in Lawrence, and will need a late charge to surpass a fantastic effort in 2011 on the recruiting trail.
Ohio State is out and Missouri is in, as the Tigers make their debut at No. 19 in the latest class rankings.

Coach Gary Pinkel and his staff have taken advantage of the in-state talent and lured in 10 commitments, including one from the ESPNU 150.

The priority has been offensive linemen, and the top prospect is guard Evan Boehm, the top-rated guard in the country.

Texas is still tops in the country, though, and the No. 4 Aggies aren't far behind.

With three members of the ESPNU 150, Texas Tech moved up a few spots to No. 14 (up from No. 16 in the previous ranking). The Red Raiders already have 16 commits and are trying to close the gap between the Longhorns and Aggies.

Oklahoma, Mizzou clash on recruiting trail

June, 15, 2011
6/15/11
11:15
AM ET

ESPN Senior Coordinator of Recruiting Jeremy Crabtree first noted it on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

"The biggest recruiting rivals in Big 12 now? No, it's not UT-A&M," he wrote. "Try OU and Mizzou. Some great battles between Sooners and Tigers in 2012."

Oklahoma took the first major battle, grabbing a commit from St. Louis receiver Durron Neal, who ranks as the nation's No. 9 receiver and No. 62 on the ESPNU 150.

That was a big pickup, but Missouri landed a blow in the next showdown on Tuesday, when Evan Boehm visited Missouri and gave the Tigers his commitment.

"Im a freakin MIZZOU TIGER #NationalChamps," he tweeted on Tuesday.

Boehm is the nation's No. 1 offensive guard, and ranks No. 55 on the ESPNU 150. A Lee's Summit, Mo., (Kansas City suburb) native, Boehm comes in at 6-foot-3 and 290 pounds.

"They showed me the love that not many showed," Boehm told ESPN.com. "That's what really got to me. It wasn't only the football players and the football coaches there, but it was everyone there. I'm very blessed to have this opportunity."

Here's the book on Boehm from our scouts:
Boehm is a tough linemen displaying the explosion and playing strength necessary to be effective as both a run and pass blocker. Although he is productive at tackle we feel his size and athleticism are better suited for the offensive guard position at the major level of competition. It appears his frame could handle additional body mass over time. Has taken some snaps at center demonstrating the ability to get the ball up quickly, roll his hips with good contact when blocking a "0" technique defender. Displays very good flexibility, balance and agility, showing the ability to play in space; from both a two and three point stance this prospect demonstrates the initial quickness and explosion necessary to get movement when drive blocking; comes off the ball low and hard with good fit and pad level. Has the flexibility to roll his hips and knock defenders back on their heels; does a good job sustaining blocks due to his balanced blocking base and persistent leg drive.

Boehm's commitment gives Missouri its 10th commitment of the 2012 class, and its first member of the ESPNU 150.

But even after Neal and Boehm, the recruiting battles between Oklahoma and Missouri are far from finished.

The two schools will clash two more times on two of the top prospects in the 2012 class.

Receiver Dorial Green-Beckham, a Springfield, Mo., native, is the top 2012 receiver and the No. 3 prospect on the ESPNU 150. So far, his only two campus visits?

Oklahoma and Missouri.

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound playmaker has the potential to be a game-changer, and it could come down to the Tigers and Sooners when Green-Beckham is ready to commit.

Additionally, the nation's No. 1 quarterback still counts Oklahoma and Missouri among the finalists for his services. Gunner Kiel, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound passer from Columbus, Ind., has kept his recruitment quiet and very private, but don't be surprised if either school eventually lands him.
We released our ESPNU 150 on Wednesday, but like you might have read, more than half of those on the list remained uncommitted to any single program.

According to our recruiting experts, here are the rest of the players still considering Big 12 schools.

You can see more on each player by clicking his name.

3. Dorial Green-Beckham, WR (Springfield, Mo./ Hillcrest)
Green-Beckham is wide open with offers from virtually everyone. To date, he has visited only Oklahoma and Missouri.

12. Gunner Kiel, QB (Columbus, Ind./Columbus East)
Kiel continues to keep his recruitment well guarded, and although a decision will most likely come during the summer, it might not be made public until later.

15. Jameis Winston, QB (Hueytown, Ala./Hueytown)
Winston favors five schools -- Alabama, FSU, LSU, Oklahoma and UCLA. This will likely be a Seminole/Crimson Tide battle.

22. Andrus Peat, OT (Tempe, Ariz./ Corona Del Sol)
Nebraska, USC, Texas, FSU and Notre Dame are five of Peat's favorites. He will visit Notre Dame and Texas this summer, and he hopes to get to Auburn and Florida.

27. John Theus, OT (Jacksonville, Fla./ The Bolles)
He has narrowed his list to Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Notre Dame, Texas and Arkansas. His older brother signed with Georgia in the 2010-11 recruiting cycle.

31. Geno Smith, RB (Atlanta/ Saint Pius X Catholic)
Smith is down to five schools -- Alabama, Auburn, Texas, Notre Dame and Tennessee. He plans to see all of them this summer.

41. Nelson Agholor, ATH (Tampa, Fla./ Berkeley Prep)
Agholor's first trip during the offseason was to Texas. FSU, USC and Georgia are often mentioned as top schools.

45. Dominique Wheeler, WR (Crockett, Texas/ Crockett)
Wheeler is focused on Oklahoma, Baylor, SMU, TCU, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

55. Evan Boehm, OG (Lee's Summit, Mo./ Lee's Summit West)
Schools such as Missouri, Oklahoma, Auburn, Alabama, Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, Stanford, Michigan and Michigan State are involved with Boehm. He wants to see Missouri, Oklahoma, Auburn, Alabama, Nebraska and Iowa this summer.

78. Barry Sanders, RB (Oklahoma City, Okla./ Heritage Hall)
The five primary teams in the hunt for Sanders are Alabama, FSU, Oklahoma State, Auburn and Stanford. Oregon and Notre Dame have made up a ton of ground and are gaining momentum. He wants to visit FSU and Notre Dame this summer.

91. Vadal Alexander, OG (Buford, Ga./ Buford)
Alabama, Auburn, LSU, USC and Texas are the front-runners for Alexander. He will visit the Crimson Tide in June.

93. Dalton Santos, ILB (Van, Texas/ Van)
Santos has backed out of his commitment to Oklahoma State and says Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee and Alabama are in the hunt.

98. Ty Darlington, C (Apopka, Fla./ Apopka)
Darlington could start to cut his list soon, but expect Oklahoma and Auburn to make any final group.

119. Avery Young, OT (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla./Palm Beach Gardens)
Recently Virginia Tech has tried to jump into the mix for Young, who has had Oklahoma and Florida at the top of his list.

142. Lorenzo Phillips, OLB (Patterson, La./Patterson)
This linebacker now has double-digit offers from teams such as LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M, Tennessee and Nebraska. He wants to visit Alabama, Clemson and Florida this summer.
