    Big 12 lands zero 5* players

    I think I heard this on the radio. Has that ever happened before? No football 5 stars

    I am kind of happy about this. The B12 will still be tough, but I don't mind ISU not having to defend the Dez Bryant's and Adrian Peterson's of the world.

    Dez Bryant was a 4* recruit.

    depends on which site's rankings you're using. Rivals rankings has zero 5 stars for the Big 12. Scout and 247 have multiple 5 stars to the conference, and ESPN only has 11 5 stars, total, far less than other sites.

    Re: Big 12 lands zero 5* players

    I can't wait to see where Lazard comes out. My guess is he's a 4 star but he will be up there in the WR rankings. Comparing him to Treadwell, I think he has more potential.

    I just looked up Petersons profile. He, uh, well he lived up to rankings.

    Re: Big 12 lands zero 5* players

    How many 5 stars are usually in each recruiting class?

    Re: Big 12 lands zero 5* players

    I don't follow recruiting closely like many on here, but any chance this is a chicken/egg sort of thing. In other words, these players didn't look like they were going to SEC teams, so they can't be 5 star players?

    No. Texas, OU and probably even OSU have enough clout that that isn't the case. No ones going to say a kid isn't a 5 star because he is going to Texas. The SEC just recruits better than everyone else for a few different reasons.

    Re: Big 12 lands zero 5* players

    Yes, the SEC is the best conference, but both recruit ratings and the NC are based on opinion, and right now opinion is heavily slanted their way.

    Well, in their defense they hold up to those opinions in the NC. They also are naming guys 5 stars or at least have the discussions in about March/April without knowing where guys are going.

    When will people stop with this? Those guys are exceptions. Especially as it applies to 5 stars, ratings show a pretty good correlation to success considering you are looking at only the athletic ability of a kid without being exposed to his drive, determination, or other mental aspects.

    That will just make next year even cooler when we sign the only 5* in the Big 12 in 2 years w/Lazard
