Every Big 12 Team’s Star Recruit
DE James Sylvester, 6-4, 243 – A pure pass rushing prospect with tremendous speed and quickness and the ability to bulk up a little more. He’s going to be a disruptive force.
Key Schools In The Running: Oklahoma, Texas A&M, TCU
OT Tyler Miller, 6-9, 290 – A MASSIVE blocker who’s built for the outside. With his size, frame, and solid feet, good luck getting around him. He brings the power, too.
Key Schools In The Running: Minnesota, Nebraska
CB Duece Mayberry, 6-0, 185 – The Oklahoma native has pure speed and tremendous upside. He’s not bulky, and he’s not going to get physical, but he can move.
Key Schools In The Running: Tulane, Oklahoma
LB Jay Harris, 6-1, 208 – He doesn’t have the bulk, and he’s going to need time in the weight room, but he can move, and he can hit. He could turn into a dangerous outside pass rusher, but she’s an inside presence.
Key Schools In The Running: Oklahoma State, Nebraska, Missouri
DT Perrion Winfrey, 6-4, 306 – The JUCO transfer has the size and quickness to be an instant problem in the backfield to go along with his run stopping ability.
Key Schools In The Running: Nebraska, Texas, Iowa State
QB Shane Illingworth, 6-6, 225 – This is going to be interesting. He’s a big, strong, pure pro-style passer who’s going to push the ball down the field. He has massive statistical upside.
Key Schools In The Running: Missouri, Washington State, Arizona State
WR Quentin Johnston, 6-4, 180 – The Horned Frogs stole away the very big, very dangerous No. 1-talent target away from Texas. Put it up and let him go get it.
Key Schools In The Running: Texas, Oklahoma, Notre Dame
RB Bijan Robinson, 6-1, 205 – Get him out there already. The Tucson native got away from Arizona and should be a workhorse back who can catch, run with power, and crank out yards in huge chunks.
Key Schools In The Running: Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC
QB Donovan Smith, 6-5, 210 – The Las Vegas native can do a little bit of everything. He’s very tall, very mobile, and has a good, accurate arm. He still needs developing – he’s a former wide receiver – but he’s Matt Wells’ guy in the near future.
Key Schools In The Running: Nevada, San Diego State
CB David Vincent-Okoli, 6-0, 180 – A two-way player who could end up as a wide receiver if needed, he was a superstar high school sprinter who’ll find his way on the field as soon as possible.
Key Schools In The Running: Kentucky, Maryland
