    [​IMG]We're now less than a week away from signing day. Any national recruiting class is littered with five-stars who don't quite meet their potential, and two-star recruits who turn into first-round picks.

    Analyzing the recruiting game isn't perfect, but it's not worthless, either.

    Looking back is always interesting, so here's how my All-Big 12 team from 2010 looked as recruits on signing day.

    OFFENSE

    QB: Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State -- walk-on, returned to OSU after minor league baseball career
    RB: Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State -- No. 73 running back, three stars
    RB: Daniel Thomas, Kansas State -- signed with K-State out of junior college, ranked No. 35 overall JUCO recruit, four stars
    WR: Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State -- No. 139 receiver, three stars
    WR: Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma -- No. 58 athlete, four stars
    TE: Michael Egnew, Missouri -- not ranked as receiver, two stars
    C: Tim Barnes, Missouri -- No. 18 offensive guard, three stars
    OL: Levy Adcock, Oklahoma State -- unranked JUCO prospect
    OL: Nate Solder, Colorado -- No. 35 tight end, three stars
    OL: Ricky Henry, Nebraska -- No. 53 offensive guard, three stars
    OL: Danny Watkins, Baylor -- No. 39 overall JUCO recruit, four stars

    DEFENSE

    DE: Jeremy Beal, Oklahoma -- No. 11 defensive end, No. 137 overall prospect, four stars
    DT: Jared Crick, Nebraska -- No. 86 defensive end, three stars
    DT: Lucas Patterson, Texas A&M -- No. 10 offensive guard, three stars
    DE: Sam Acho, Texas -- No. 14 defensive end, No. 114 overall prospect, four stars
    LB: Von Miller, Texas A&M -- No. 37 defensive end, three stars
    LB: Lavonte David, Nebraska -- No. 7 overall JUCO recruit, four stars
    LB: Orie Lemon, Oklahoma State -- No. 40 outside linebacker, three stars
    CB: Prince Amukamara, Nebraska -- No. 31 running back, three stars
    CB: Alfonzo Dennard, Nebraska -- No. 44 cornerback, three stars
    S: Quinton Carter, Oklahoma -- No. 39 safety, three stars
    S: Byron Landor, Baylor -- No. 48 safety, three stars in high school, No. 100 overall JUCO recruit

    SPECIALISTS

    P: Quinn Sharp, Oklahoma State -- unranked
    K: Alex Henery, Nebraska -- walk-on, unranked
    KR: Coryell Judie, Texas A&M -- No. 28 overall JUCO recruit, four stars
    PR: Niles Paul, Nebraska -- No. 49 receiver, three stars

    lotta value for OSU's O studs. Hunter, Blackmon, Weedon and the unranked OL. 4 all conference players, 6 total stars.

    and Broyles was an OSU decommit.

    CU's only all-conference pick came from the thriving metropolis of Buena Vista. Nice!

    rather shockingly Hawk's transition class will put three players into the NFL, 2 of them very early in the draft.

    And half (guessing) of his most heralded class won't finish at CU.

    Don't know if sarcastic or not, but I'm damn proud of Nate. I love seeing stories like his and can't wait for another local small town, small little known high school prospect to shine like he has here.
