Breaking down the Big 12 recruiting classes

We went over each team's needs earlier today, and ESPN recruiting analyst Corey Long has a breakdown of all 12 classes in the Big 12.

You'll find a commitment count for each team, along with the number of ESPNU 150 commits for each team.

Texas and Oklahoma are at the front of the pack as you'd expect, but the Big 12 has a handful of other great classes, too. Oklahoma State, Nebraska and Texas Tech all have nationally ranked classes.

Long breaks down the top commit for each Big 12 team and another commitment you should keep an eye out for. Here's a quick sample:

For Oklahoma:

Top prospect: Four-star running back Brandon Williams (Brookshire, Texas/Brookshire Royal) had comparisons of Adrian Peterson during his practice week at the Under Armour game. Originally committed to Baylor, Williams switched to in April and has the potential to join the long line of great running backs to come through Norman.

For Texas:

Don't be surprised if: the expectations for this class are higher than usual. There's always a lot of pressure on the players in the Texas program to perform but coming off of the program's worst season in the Mack Brown era there will be a bigger emphasis on this class to quickly help turn things around.
