2. Oklahoma: The Sooners got a late boost by landing New Orleans linebacker Arthur McGinnis, to go along with signing four-stars in running back Rodney Anderson and Neville Gallimore.

3. Baylor: The Bears’ best signee, quarterback Jarrett Stidham, was a late flip from Texas Tech.

4. TCU: The Frogs’ class is still solid but took a hit when WR J.F. Thomas signed with Texas Tech instead.

5. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders got a boost Wednesday by landing Dallas WR J.F. Thomas.

6. West Virginia: The Mountaineers bring in two solid cornerbacks in Tyrek Cole and Rasul Douglas and a talented quarterback in David Sills.

7. Oklahoma State: Dallas DT Darrion Daniels and dual-threat QB John Kolar headline the Cowboys’ class.

8. Kansas State: The Wildcats’ defense should be helped by the additions of DeSoto DT Bryce English and Lawton (Okla.) CB Darreyl Patterson.

10. Iowa State: Georgia LB Joshua Thomas and Mississippi DT Demond Tucker lead the Cyclones’ class.
