4. It Was A Rough Run For the Conference Overall, Because …

There are always new head coaches in leagues, but it’s hard to make too big a splash when 40% of the conference has no time to work.

It’s not like Kansas and Kansas State were killers on the recruiting trail, anyway, but this year was particularly tough with Les Miles taking over the Jayhawks and Chris Klieman stepping in late to handle the Wildcats.

Neal Brown did a decent job keeping things going at West Virginia – he kept most of Dana Holgorsen’s guys – and Matt Wells did what he could with a smallish class at Texas Tech.

There’s a positive to all of this, though.

Oklahoma State | TCU | Texas | Texas Tech | West Virginia


Going forward, get ready to see what Miles can do on the recruiting trail. He won’t get the same talents he brought in at LSU, but things are about to improve.

Klieman is about to go after a different sort of prospect in Manhattan, and Brown is almost certainly going to do a bit better with the Mountaineers than what Dana Holgorsen came up with over his era.

Kliff Kingsbury didn’t crush it last season, and Wells actually improved Texas Tech’s class from 2018.

These schools aren’t going to start challenging Texas and Oklahoma for the top talents, but get ready for the game to be upped a bit in 2020.
