Pac-12 Recruiting, Who's Left: Best of the Rest from the West (4-Stars)

Michael TierneyAnalyst IJuly 16, 2012

There are at least 34 '2013' 4-star prospects from the western states who have not commited as of mid-July.

USC only has a few more open slots, so the 'Trojan 4-and-5-star feasting' is nearly over.

The Trojans are likely to still get safety Max Redfield or maybe safety Tahaan Goodman from the west, but any other commits will come from the east.

Most of those 34 uncommitted western recruits will most likely sign with a Pac-12 university - and perhaps up to a dozen may sign with the UCLA Bruins. already has UCLA at six 4-star verbals, so an additional 10 4-star pledges could be a coup d'etat for Bruins head coach Jim Mora?

Time will tell if the Bruins end up with a top ten class, but recall UCLA had a great class last year along with USC, Stanford and Oregon. USC and UCLA might have the best back-to-back recruiting classes (2012/2013) of the Pac-12.

Here is a list of the rest of the best from the west:

Did I miss any 4-5-star prospects? Where do you think these prospects will sign? Are we headed for some new USC/UCLA showdowns as the Pac-12's top two teams in the near future? Are Oregon and Stanford in for a shocking recruiting letdown? Let me know.
