    [​IMG]We're less than two weeks away from signing day on Feb. 2, but we've rolled out a bunch of new recruiting content at ESPN.com this week. Here's a quick rundown of what you need to know from the Big 12.

    Quick Big 12 class commit counts (click on each for complete class breakdown):

    Texas (national No. 1) - 23 commits (8 ESPNU 150 members)

    Oklahoma (national No. 6) - 17 commits (6 ESPNU 150)

    Nebraska (national No. 14) - 16 commits (4 ESPNU 150)

    Oklahoma State (national No. 20) - 25 commits (1 ESPNU 150)

    Texas Tech (national No. 30) - 27 commits (1 ESPNU 150)

    Kansas - 23 commits

    Iowa State - 21 commits

    Baylor - 19 commits

    Texas A&M - 19 commits

    Kansas State - 18 commits

    Missouri - 16 commits

    Colorado - 9 commits

    A few other notes:
    • USC pushed Oklahoma's class out of the top five. The Sooners lost Brandon Carter, who wanted to play receiver rather than defensive back, to TCU on Tuesday, but running back Brandon Williams was moved into the national top 5 at his position after a performance at a recent camp.
    • Texas Tech was knocked out of the national top 25 for the first time this recruiting season.
    • New Texas Tech commit Marcus Roberson moved into the national top 10 among safeties and into the ESPNU 150 after the Under Armour All-American game. He gives the Red Raiders a their only member of the ESPNU150, but future teammate and offensive lineman La'Raven Clark also participated in the Under Armour game in Florida earlier this month.
    • Here's a look at the final ESPNU150 before signing day on Feb. 2. If you're interested, Texas has three of the top-25 recruits in the nation. Nebraska is the only other school in the Big 12 with a top-30 commit, running back Aaron Green, who is also the No. 2 player in Texas and the No. 3 running back in the country.
    • Here's the list of the top players in Texas. Plenty of Big 12 flavor here.
    • Kansas is making big waves lately on the trail. Heads up on the blog later Thursday for a post about the Jayhawks suddenly strong class and what it means.
