Big 12 recruiting scorecard

The spring recruiting season keeps rolling with another week of commitments, offers and junior day visits. Here's the latest on the Big 12 recruiting trail:

BAYLOR

Total commits: 7

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 4

The latest: Baylor up to three defensive backs in its 2016 class thanks to commitments from Kenan Ivy of Lancaster, Texas, and Raleigh Texada from Frisco (Texas) Centennial. He's the younger brother of TCU starting cornerback Ranthony Texada. The Bears also landed a fourth pledge in the final ESPN Junior 300: Defensive tackle Jordan Elliott debuted at No. 75 in the latest rankings.

IOWA STATE

Total commits: 0

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 0

The latest: The Cyclones hosted a junior day on March 7 but have yet to pick up a commitment from a visitor. Iowa State did host Omaha (Nebraska) South's Noah Fant, an athletic defensive end/tight end who had high praise for his time in Ames. He'll take a trip to Nebraska's junior day next weekend.

KANSAS

Total commits: 1

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 0

The latest: Running back Aubrey White of Wylie (Texas) East backed out of his commitment to Kansas this week. He reportedly intends to take visits to Arkansas and Alabama this spring. White, who'd pledged to KU in October before coach David Beaty and his staff was hired, rushed for 241 yards as a junior.

KANSAS STATE

Total commits: 2

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 0

The latest: Kansas State made a big impression on Kansas City (Missouri) Rockhurt athlete A.J. Taylor during his junior day visit. He'd like to play receiver in college, and KSU's staff is selling him on the chance to be their next Tyler Lockett. Taylor is expected to check out several other schools in the Midwest this spring after already visiting Kansas and Missouri.

OKLAHOMA

Total commits: 3

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 1

The latest: Oklahoma hosted junior days on Saturday and Sunday and got some big-name talent on campus, including ESPN Junior 300 linebacker Dontavious Jackson and defensive tackle Mike Williams. This was also a critical weekend for Jean Delance. The ESPN 300 tackle said he was solid to OU after his visit, then elected to reopen his recruitment on Monday morning.

OKLAHOMA STATE

Total commits: 2

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 0

The latest: Oklahoma State was able to get ESPN Junior 300 wide receiver Tren'Davian Dickson on campus this weekend following his trip to OU. Dickson, who was previously committed to Baylor, is ranked No. 160 in the 300 after breaking the national single-season record with 39 touchdown catches. He'll be one of the most coveted recruits in the Big 12 this year, so getting him to visit Stillwater this spring was important.

TCU

Total commits: 8

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 3

The latest: TCU brought an out-of-state wideout with an impressive list of offers in on a visit last week. Theo Howard of Westlake High in California tripped to Fort Worth and also checked out Baylor while in the state. The Frogs secured a spot in his top five with the visit after Howard got to take in a TCU spring practice.

TEXAS

Total commits: 4

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 3

The latest: Texas extended an offer to offensive lineman Chris Owens, the Arlington Lamar teammate of quarterback commit Shane Buechele. Owens, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound guard, was offered by Texas A&M soon after and holds more than 25 offers thus far. He's the first in-state interior lineman the Horns have offered in the 2016 class.

TEXAS TECH

Total commits: 2

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 0

The latest: Texas Tech hosted its first junior day over the weekend. Among the many who made the trip to Lubbock: running back commit Da'Leon Ward, twin linemen Riley Anderson and Austin Anderson, 2017 linebacker Anthony Hines III, 2017 lineman Jack Anderson and 2017 running back Eno Benjamin. The Red Raiders also offered quarterback Jalen Hurts after Tristen Wallace backed out of his commitment.

WEST VIRGINIA

Total commits: 4

ESPN Junior 300 commits: 0

The latest: West Virginia is set to host its first junior day on March 15, and the list of recruits expected to attend is looking good. Florida State commit Joshua Brown, Virginia Tech commit Reggie Floyd, ESPN Junior 300 running back Demario McCall and quarterback Joshua Jackson are reportedly planning to visit Morgantown for the Sunday event.
