    As of now, five Pac-12 teams are ranked in the rivals top 25 team recruiting rankings, with another just outside the top 30:

    5. USC-The Trojans continue to assert their dominance in-state, with seven of California's top ten prospects in the fold. Obviously things could change dramatically come summer/fall if they have to drop certain players.
    6. Oregon-The Ducks are capitalizing on two straight BCS bowl appearances with a true national recruiting effort, yet they did not have to go far to find the highest rated player in their class, 5* in-stater Colt Lyerla. The Ducks have also grabbed two of the top five players in Arizona and a top five player from California.
    16. Cal-Super recruiter Tosh Lupoi is once again playing an integral role in bringing a top class to Berkeley. He is the primary recruiter for five of Cal's nine 4* commitments, including four along the DL.
    21. Stanford-Jim Harbaugh's departure has resulted in the Cardinal losing some verbals, but the hiring of David Shaw seems to have prevented wholesale defections. Like Oregon, the Cardinal have employed a national recruiting effort.
    24. Washington-Steve Sarkisian and his staff are using their California connections to the fullest while also locking down the top in-state prospects. The top three Washington prep players are all committed to the Huskies and the Huskies also have commitments from 13 Californians.
    32. Utah-The Utes will enter the Pac-12 with a solid recruiting class, built on a strong in-state foundation. The Utes have commitments from eight in-state players, including six of the top ten.

    The notable absence from this list? That would be UCLA. Turmoil on the coaching staff has resulted in a lackluster recruiting effort for the Bruins, who currently have only eight commits, only one being a 4-star. Arizona and Arizona State also appear to be having off years as well.

    Hopefully, this list in 2012 will include the Buffs!

    Yes, and quite frankly, with the effort I've seen the new staff give in the past few weeks I think I'll be shocked if it didn't...:thumbsup:
