If you thought bragging rights were only achieved by winning a game, you simply haven’t ventured into the world of recruiting yet.

Careful, this stuff can be addicting.

Recruiting is the lifeblood of any college athletic program, particualrly when it comes to football. Coaches essentially take on additioanl full-time jobs prospecting recruits from across the country.

All the hard work that they put in to gaining a recruits trust comes to a head on Feb. 7 when prospects from all over end their recruitment during National Signing Day.

Some of the luster has been taken out of the college football holiday thanks to the addition of the Early Signing Period. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of surprises next week as programs put a bow on the 2018 cycle.

Here’s a look at where Big 12 programs, and other local colleges, appear in the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings.
