    Big 12 football recruiting rankings following National Signing Day 2017. Oklahoma landed a top-10 class to sit atop the rankings as no other school in the conference landed in the top 25.


    The 2017 recruiting cycle has come and gone, and the majority of the National Letters of Intent for this year’s batch of prospect are signed, sealed and delivered.

    In terms of the overall class rankings, the Big 12 managed to get only one representative into the top 25. That honor went to Bob Stoops’ Sooners, as Oklahoma finished with 27 total commits in the cycle and clocked in at No. 7 overall. The Sooners were ranked as high as No. 1 in the recruiting cycle, and even though they didn’t end up there, they still finished No. 1 in the Big 12 recruiting rankings.

    Tom Herman’s Longhorns were the second-highest-ranked Big 12 program with 18 total commits at No. 28 overall. Texas ended up missing out on 5-star defensive end K’Lavon Chaisson, who ended up committing to LSU instead. However, the Longhorns did bring in plenty of talent like 4-star defensive end Taquon Graham and 4-star running back Toneil Carter, the latter of which wound up in Austin after the Georgia Bulldogs pulled his offer.

    Here’s a look at how the rest of the Big 12 stacks up now that National Signing Day is over.
