Recruiting is never done, so it's worth checking in with the Pac-12 teams to see who has been making the most noise during this most recent recruiting cycle.

The folks at RecruitingNation gave you their analysis of the Way Too Early Top 25 teamsInsider.

USC is leading the conference with the most commits from the ESPN 150, followed by Oregon and Stanford, which each have a pair. Oregon State is the lone team without a 2013 commit.


2013 verbal commitments: 6

Spotlight: Offensive guard Logan Scott from St. George, Utah committed to the Wildcats more than a year ago and has stuck with them despite the turnover. At 6-3, 295, he's rated as the No. 18 guard in the country.

2013 verbal commitments: 2

Spotlight: A good sized-defensive end at 6-4, 250, Dimarya Mixon of Mesquite, Texas passed on schools like Ole Miss, Washington State and Colorado to join the Sun Devils.

2013 verbal commitments: 5

Spotlight: Quarterback Jared Goff will have to add some size to his 6-4, 190-pound frame, but all the analysis points to a very technically sound QB who can drive the ball downfield. No. 14 rated QB-PP.

2013 verbal commitments: 5

Spotlight: Dual-threat quarterback Sefo Liufau from Tacoma, Wash., might be the Buff's QB of the future. He's already got good size at 6-3, 220 and has tremendous upside.

2013 verbal commitments: 3

Spotlight: Recent athlete commit Dontre Wilson of DeSoto, Texas is already drawing comparisons to De'Anthony Thomas for his burning speed out of the backfield and versatility as a slot receiver. He's the No. 7-rated athlete nationally.

2013 verbal commitments: 3

Spotlight: Isaac Savaiinaea of Honolulu, Hawaii, is the No. 3-rated inside linebacker and is very explosive. Could be the heir apparent for Shayne Skov.

ESPN 150 members: 2 (Ryan Burns, QB, Ashburn Va.; Isaac Savaiinaea, ILB, Honolulu, Hawaii.)


2013 verbal commitments: 8

Spotlight: Offensive tackle Erik Bunte already has the frame at 6-7, 310 and as of right now is considered a stronger pass protector than run blocker, which seems like a good fit for what UCLA is trying to do offensively.

ESPN 150 members: 1 (Dashon Hunt, CB, Westlake, Calif.)


2013 verbal commitments: 7

Spotlight: Kenny Bigelow, the No. 2 rated defensive tackle in the country out of Elkton, Md. turned down offers from Auburn, Oklahoma and Oregon. Despite size at 6-3, 297, he's versatile enough to play across the line.

ESPN 150 members: 5 (Kenny Bigelow, DT, Elkton Md.; Max Browne, QB, Sammamish Wash.; Ty Isaac, RB, Joliet, Il.; Chris Hawkins, CB, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.; Kylie Fitts, DE, Redlands, Calif.)


2013 verbal commitments: 4

Spotlight: Siale Fakailoatonga, a three-star tight end from Salt Lake City, also has the speed to play some slot. Has shown good hands in traffic and adding some size to his 6-4, 215-pound frame should significantly help him as a blocker.

2013 verbal commitments: 6

Spotlight: One of the top rated centers in the nation, Dane Crane of Rancho Santa Margarita already has the size at 6-3, 305, though as his ESPN scouting report indicates, he's not called upon to snap out of the shotgun. Categorized as a physical and agile run blocker.

2013 verbal commitments: 2

Spotlight: The 6-7, 335-pound offensive tackle from Wenatchee, Wash., Cody O'Connell has the size to be an affective pass blocker in Mike Leach's scheme. At question is his mobility and versatility, though he's also played guard in high school but likely projects to a tackle at the next level.
