Just days away from November, it looks like Big 12 recruiting will continue to wind down following its October performance. There were only 14 commitments across the Big 12 in October, as of this writing. Expect an even smaller number in the month to come.

As teams are already about 70% done with their 2018 recruiting classes, expect things to stay on pace.

Scheduled Commitments

There are currently no scheduled commitments for the month of November that have a real chance of including a Big 12 team, but this is likely to change as the month goes on. Keep an eye on our Twitter account for updates as players announce their commitment dates.

(Note: We wrote this section with the understanding that Anthony Cook commits on Oct. 30 as planned. If he does not, he will be a major November commitment.)

Visits

Visits are a lot like commitments. Sometimes they are scheduled far in advance, other times they are decided the week of. While there are only four scheduled visits in November so far, there will certainly be plenty of visits throughout the month.

Oklahoma

Christopher Oats is an outside linebacker we have ranked at 212. The 4-star recruit will be officially visiting the Sooners on Nov. 11.

Ken Montgomery Jr. will also be in Norman on Nov. 11. He is a 3-star cornerback and a current UCLA commit.

TCU

TCU is bringing in Ta’Zhawn Henry, a 3-star running back out of Lamar High School. Henry will be on campus on Nov. 3 after committing to the Horned Frogs on Aug. 8.

Texas

Terrace Marshall is by far the biggest visit already scheduled for November. The 5-star wide receiver from Louisiana is ranked at number eight in the Armchair300. Marshall has the Longhorns in his top five, and the only two schools he has yet to visit are Texas and LSU. He visits Texas on Nov. 11.  Expect him to make a decision sometime after his Nov. 24 visit to LSU.

Games

Football games are one of the most important pieces of the Big 12 recruiting puzzle. The outcomes weigh heavily on recruits who are on the fence about one team or another. Of course, the final four games in the Big 12 will have a huge impact, not only on conference standings but on recruiting as well.

A chart of all November Big 12 games is below.

The last four weeks of the season will greatly impact Big 12 recruiting rankings. Top-25 ranked matchups will carry a special emphasis. Games like Oklahoma vs. TCU, Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State and West Virginia vs. Iowa State could have major consequences on Big 12 recruiting. Top targets of Big 12 teams will place a heavy emphasis on team performance.
