National Signing Day: The Rich Get Richer In The Big 12

With the latest signings announced for Texas of Quandre Diggs, the nation's top cornerback recruit, and Malcolm Brown, the No. 2 running back in the country, it seems that Texas will return to prominence very soon. Given the additional recruits on Texas' stellar group of recruits and the strong classes enjoyed by both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, the rich should only get richer on a day like National Signing Day.

As for Kansas' in-state teams, Turner Gill managed to land a couple of four-star prospects earlier in the recruiting season and landed 26 recruits overall. Kansas State landed 25 but failed to grab a highly regarded player in this year's class, placing them just above Colorado for the worst Big 12 recruiting season.

Most of the recruiting drama will occur away from Big 12 country, as SEC teams rally around top prospects like linebackers Curtis Grant and Tony Steward and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Stay tuned here for further analysis of local impact of National Signing Day.
