Pac-12 Football Recruiting Rankings 2012: Stanford And USC Tops, Oregon Close Behind

All in all, it was a good year for the Pac-12 recruiting-wise. Half their schools averaged three stars and above in terms of quality of recruits, and another two came very close. Two schools had top-ten quality national recruiting classes, and the defending Pac-12 champion wasn't too far behind. The California schools dominated recruiting again, but that's not to say that every other Pac-12 school managed to find at least one quality talent they could hang their hat on.

3.73 3.59 3.36 3.59 3.57

By far, Stanford is the big victor of National Signing Day. They have filled up a position of need with perhaps the best offensive line recruiting class ever--when all is said and done, Garnett (considered the best offensive guard on the West Coast), Murphy (considered the best offensive tackle on the West Coast) and Peat (perhaps has the greatest upside of them all) all have the talent to start and compete at a high level from Day 1 on the Farm. This is a class that ensures that Stanford will be continuing to impose their smash-mouth style for another few years.

Stanford also brought in perhaps one of the most complete defensive linemen on the West Coast in Shittu, a true beast in Noor Davis to anchor the next line of Stanford defenders, and a solid running back in Sanders to run through the open holes the Cardinal line should be unleashing these next few years. . If the Cardinal had wrested Jameis Winston away from Florida State, this could have been the number one recruiting class in the country.

Pretty impressive for David Shaw to bring in this haul.

2) USC Trojans - 15 commits
Name Position State Rivals Scout ESPN 24/7 Avg.

There's no doubt that if USC had a full recruiting class, they would be the ones at the top here. But 15 scholarships limit the upward mobility of this class and its overall impact. Regardless, of all the classes, the Trojans will probably have the greatest success rate of players panning out, filling up on legitimate talent on the offensive line and landing two great wide receivers, particularly Agholor, who seems destined to be next in line to follow in the footsteps of Robert Woods and Marqise Lee.

Landing an instant impact safety like Bowman will also be critical for USC to ensure the defense stays shored up. Both Banner and Simmons probably won't be needed until down the line, but they provide a nice glimpse of what the Trojans can put in the trenches.

3) Oregon Ducks - 21 commits

3.38 3.48 3.41 3.38 3.4


No one paid much attention to little ol' Oregon, but there the Ducks were putting together another top 25 recruiting class. Armstead gets plenty of pub, but Oregon probably recruited the next generation of their offense with Marshall at running back, Brown and Baylis at the tight ends, Addison, Stanford and Allen as their wide receivers and Rodrigues/Lockie as the quarterbacks. Add in more speedy defenders in Balducci and Buckner along with the Amoako twins and you have another class that should be filled with college playmakers.

3.22 3.15 3.12 3.19 3.17

Jim Mora is coming in guns blazing. UCLA perhaps captured the two best defensive talents in the state when they landed both Ellis McCarthy and Ishmael Adams, both of whom are likely to be absolute menaces in the backfield and the interior line when they get their chances to shine. Jordan Payton's vagrant recruitment has been a punchline, but he's still a solid enough number one receiver. Aaron Porter and Marcus Rios are two more excellent defenders. And Devin Fuller is a potential X-factor.

The Bruins probably have the most exciting group of top-level talent coming in, and should have plenty of frosh making an immediate impact.

3.33 3.11 3.235 3 3.17


Cal is probably going to be the team most disappointed with their top 25 recruiting class, because it ultimately had the capacity to be a top 5 group. Losing recruiting battles for four-five star talent to Washington, UCLA and Oregon hurt, as the Bears had only three to four defensive recruits on National Signing Day. Landing two/three of those guys would've given Cal the top recruiting class in the conference. Coming in fifth (and fourth among California schools) will be tough for many Bears fans to swallow.

Still, Cal should have the best West Coast quarterback from this class in Zach Kline, brings in a great haul at wide receiver headlined by Bryce Treggs, Kenny Lawler and Darius Powe, and has an underrated gem in Freddie Tagaloa to be their tackle of the future. It's not likely to be a class Cal fans will complain that much about, particularly if Kline proves to be as good as advertised.

3.08 2.96 3.045 2.92 3.00


For a guy who didn't land any of his big in-state targets, Steve Sarkisian did very well for himself. He brought in Cal's Tosh Lupoi onto his staff (an ace recruiter regardless of his many other faults), and then perhaps landed the can't-miss recruit of the year in Shaq Thompson, who had been considered a Cal lock up until Lupoi bolted. Thompson should be an absolute menace in Pac-12 backfields for the next three years if any team dares to throw deep on Washington. Cyler Miles is second among the Pac-12 quarterback recruits, and landing guys like Brandon Beaver, Pio Vatuvei and Jaydon Mickens at the eleventh hour helped shore up UW with enough talent to make this a top 25 recruiting class.

Not too bad, considering how dire things looked for the Huskies three weeks ago.

Arizona State also was a team on the verge of pain when Dennis Erickson bolted and Todd Graham was hired, but Graham recovered well enough to keep most of the class and even win some big battles late, particularly for D.J. Foster, perhaps the best pure athlete in the state. Add in Marion Grice from Texas and the Sun Devils have two capable running backs that can keep the running game going. Keeping a lot of their in-state talent (eight recruits from Arizona) also helped fill in the coffers, and landing several recruits from California (particularly from Long Beach Poly) ensures ASU doesn't fall too far behind the rest of the pack.

Utah has to be pretty happy with where they stand. Cedrick Poutasi and Hiva Lutui are massive roadblocks that can be the lynchpins of a more physical Ute offensive line, and Kelvin York can be the H-back leading the way. Travis Wilson is an underrated quarterback from this class as well. Just like ASU did in Arizona, Kyle Wittingham won some big recruiting battles in-state, as 10 of the 28 commits hail from the state of Utah, including five-six of the top ten prospects.

Colorado landed a late surprise in Yuri Wright after his Twitterstorm, and if he can recover from that setback he should prove to be one heck of a menace for the Buffs. Kenneth Crawley also is another nice East Coast secondary pickup. Most of Colorado's big recruiting efforts had to come out-of-state, picking up Kisima Jagne from Arizona, two of the Irwin triplets and Thomas twins from Texas, and FB Christian Powell and QB Shane Dillon from California. Colorado doesn't scream like a team with any instant impact players, but they have fine pieces to fit all positions and have guys who should contribute in a season or two.

Oregon State is ranked pretty low on this list, but they could contend for second best offensive line class in the conference when we look back on this group. Isaac Seumalo was a home-grown product and seemed destined to be a Beaver, but landing Garrett Weinrich, Grant Bays and Gavin Andrews is big-time for an Oregon State team that has relied on cast-offs and walk-ons to man the trenches. Add in running back Chris Brown, wide receiver Malik Gilmore and tight ends Caleb Smith and Dustin Stanton and OSU has restocked the offensive well as best they possibly could coming off a dismal season.

Arizona could be in a different situation if they win the Davonte Neal sweepstakes, but right now Rich Rodriguez better hope his coaching is of the West Virginia rather than the Michigan variety, because there isn't much talent here. Hemmila and Kelley were crucial pick-ups to keep the class from falling to dead-last in the Pac. With ASU pretty much winning all the major Arizona battles other than Hemmila and Dylan Cozens and the other schools locking down California (Arizona had only five recruits from the state of California, and only three of those were highly sought after), Rodriguez had to go looking East for talent, including getting Bundage from Oklahoma and Conwell and Caspers from Pennsylvania.

Washington State is still at the bottom of the Pac-12, but this class looks a lot better than it did before the Pirate arrived. The Cougars brought in about a half-dozen quality players in the past month or two, including top wide receivers Gabriel Marks and Alex Jackson, linebacker Jeremiah Allison, and running backs Robert Lewis and Theron West. The Cougars have to be encouraged by this positive start in their overall recruiting.
