In the last recruiting cycle—Class of 2022—Oregon, Stanford, and Arizona all finished with top-25 classes in the 247Sports team rankings. Utah finished just outside the top 30.

As the season approaches, some Pac-12 schools are still looking to build their classes while others have used a torrid summer of recruiting to position themselves nicely for the start of the new year. Three teams from the league currently sit in the top 25 nationally, with a fourth (Stanford) not far away and a fifth (Arizona) lurking right outside the top 30.

Here’s a snapshot of where each class stands in the Pac-12 and nationally a week into fall camp (as of Aug. 11):

  1. USC — 15 commits, 12th nationally (246.51 Composite score)
  2. Oregon — 13 commits, 15th nationally (223.98)
  3. Washington — 19 commits, 21st nationally (206.62)
  4. Stanford — 14 commits, 27th nationally (198.05)
  5. Arizona — 18 commits, 36th nationally (184.12)
  6. Colorado — 17 commits, 43rd nationally (176.51)
  7. Utah — 12 commits, 49th nationally (169.89)
  8. Oregon State — 14 commits, 55th nationally (153.86)
  9. Washington State — 14 commits, 56th nationally (150.72)
  10. Cal — 9 commits, 73rd nationally (109.31)
  11. UCLA — 6 commits, 81st nationally (102.26)
  12. Arizona State — 6 commits, 87th nationally (84.72)

The Trojans are the class of the league so far, just above the Ducks, who have produced the Pac-12’s top-ranked high school recruiting class four years in a row. Among USC’s 15 commits, nine classify as blue-chip prospects. The Trojans are also one of only five teams in the country so far with multiple 5-star commits in the 247 Composite—QB Malachi Nelson and WR Zachariah Branch. And while the offense gets all the attention with Lincoln Riley, the No. 4, 5, and 6 prospects in the class are all blue-chip defenders who have joined the group this summer.

Oregon has quickly closed the gap, though. The Ducks’ class is headlined by 5-star QB Dante Moore—a top-10 recruit—and WR Jurrion Dickey. If some of the other recruiting services (Rivals has him ranked 157th…) got around to updating their ranking of Dickey to better match the one 247 has given him (5-star, 14th nationally, second-ranked wideout), he’d make the Ducks the sixth team with multiple 5-star commits. The Ducks also hold commits from the No. 1 player in the state of Washington and the No. 2 player in the state of Arizona. Like USC, Oregon has nine known commitments from nine blue-chippers.

In Kalen DeBoer’s first full cycle as head coach at UW, he has put in some major work on the recruiting trail and turned in some impressive results. After the 2022 class closed in a rough way, DeBoer used a flurry of visits over the summer to stack what’s the largest class in the Pac-12 so far. Washington has blue-chip commits in CB Curley Reed, DL Anthony James, ATH Vincent Holmes, and WR Rashid Williams—all of whom have joined the class since mid-May.

At the other end, keep an eye on the Bruins.

So much has been made about the Sun Devils failing to find some momentum on the trail this summer. On June 23, ASU had just one 2023 commit. Since, it has received five known verbals.

In the same time, UCLA has gotten one commitment.

Both classes sit at six. No other Power Five team has fewer at this point. Ten teams at the P5 level (Notre Dame included, 65 total) have fewer than 10 commits—Texas A&M (nine), Ole Miss (nine), Missouri (nine), Cal (nine), Syracuse (nine), Kansas (eight), Indiana (eight), Auburn (six), UCLA, and Arizona State.
