With signing day over, we've updated our way-too-early Big 12 Power Rankings. There were no changes to our rankings, but there are plenty of newcomers who could factor into the Big 12 standings in 2016.
1. Oklahoma Sooners: Late-day ESPN 300 addition Caleb Kelly will have a chance to help the Sooners' depleted linebacking corps from Day 1. Lackawanna College linebackers Emmanuel Beal and Kapri Doucet could factor into the rotation as well.
2. Baylor Bears: Art Briles' best signing class yet features plenty of immediate-impact players. ESPN JC 50 defensive tackle Jeremy Faulk and offensive guard Branton Autry could play prominent roles as Baylor looks to replenish its defensive and offensive lines. Devin Duvernay has the recruiting pedigree to be Baylor's next great wide receiver.
3. Oklahoma State Cowboys: This was not Oklahoma State's finest recruiting class, but the Cowboys addressed their biggest weakness by inking junior college All-American offensive guard Larry Williams. All told, the Pokes signed seven offensive linemen, which should give them the depth they've been lacking up front in recent years.
4. TCU Horned Frogs: Freshman All-American KaVontae Turpin will have plenty of help from this class at receiver. Taj Williams was the No. 16 overall juco recruit in the country. He and Isaiah Graham (ESPN 300) should join Turpin in the wide receiver rotation.
5. Texas Tech Red Raiders: With DeAndre Washington and Jakeem Grant moving on, Tech added some much-needed firepower in No. 1 juco wideout Derrick Willies and ESPN JC 50 slot receiver De'Quan Bowman. Four-star T.J. Vasher is also an intriguing prospect at receiver. Tech did a nice job restocking weapons for quarterback Pat Mahomes.
6. West Virginia Mountaineers: Lackawanna College's Kyzir White, the younger brother of Kevin and Ka'Raun White, was the No. 1 juco safety in the country and should slide in nicely into the starting lineup at safety alongside Dravon Askew-Henry.
7. Texas Longhorns: There's too much uncertainty at quarterback to move Texas up in the power rankings, but Charlie Strong hit a signing day home run with the way he closed out his class. Texas alone signed as many top 150 players (seven) as the entire rest of the conference did. Shane Buechele will be the one to watch from this class. The ESPN 300 quarterback has enrolled early and will have a chance to challenge for playing time.
8. Kansas State Wildcats: The Wildcats signed another big-time quarterback talent in four-star prospect Skylar Thompson. It might be asking a lot for him to compete for the starting job this season, but the opportunity is there. ESPN JC 50 receiver Byron Pringle could boost a receiving corps in need of playmaking.
9. Iowa State Cyclones: New head coach Matt Campbell had a strong showing with his first recruiting class. It will be interesting to see if either Zeb Noland or Jacob Park pushes Joel Lanning at quarterback. Though just an incoming freshman, four-star Sean Foster could help the Cyclones along the offensive line, where they have several holes to fill.
